Kim Masters, who seems to be everywhere these days, will host tomorrow's edition of KCRW's The Politics of Culture on the issues raised by the MPAA's ban on free DVDs. The show airs Tuesdays at 2:30 on 89.9 FM.

Peter Bart, the editor of Variety, advises Jack Valenti to compromise in today's column The Backlot. (He also suggests that Schwarzenegger end his feud with the press: "Make a few suck-up courtesy calls and you'll find that newspaper editors are secretly starstruck and will become your best allies.")
