Oscar winner Affleck speaks about sexual harassment claims

In an interview following his Oscar win on Sunday, Casey Affleck addressed earlier sexual harassment claims against him and said "everyone deserves to be treated with respect in the workplace and everywhere else."

The "Manchester by the Sea" star had largely evaded questions about the two lawsuits brought against him while making the 2010 mockumentary "I'm Still Here." The settlement of each case prevents each party from discussing the accusations.

In an interview posted Tuesday night by The Boston Globe, Affleck said, "Mistreatment of anyone for any reason is unacceptable and abhorrent."

Asked about those who have criticized his Academy Award win, Affleck said all he can do is "speak to what my own values are and how I try to live by them all the time."

Rhode Island lawmakers congratulate Oscar-winner Viola Davis

Rhode Island lawmakers have passed a resolution congratulating Viola Davis for winning an Oscar.

The state House of Representatives on Tuesday voted to approve the resolution honoring Davis, who grew up in poverty in Central Falls.

Davis on Sunday won the best supporting actress Oscar for "Fences," a role she originated in a Broadway revival seven years ago for which she won a Tony Award.

Two years ago, she became the first black woman to win for lead actress in a drama series, and she's the first black woman to win an Oscar, Emmy and Tony.

She's known for giving back to Central Falls by raising and donating money to support its public library and high school.

She's a graduate of Rhode Island College and the Juilliard School.

So presidential: Baldwin working on Trump satire

Alec Baldwin has found a new way to mock Donald Trump.

Trump," Penguin Press announced Wednesday. The book is scheduled to come out Nov. 7, almost exactly a year to the day that Trump stunned the world by being elected president, and ensured many more appearances by Baldwin as Trump on "Saturday Night Live."

Baldwin is having a busy year as a writer. His memoir, "Nevertheless," comes out in April.

Former ABC News employees urge strong stand against Trump

More than 230 former ABC News correspondents, executives and producers have signed a letter urging the network's current top executive to take a firm stand against any Trump administration effort to curtail press access.

The letter, which circulated on a Facebook forum for ex-ABC News employees, was written after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer held an informal briefing last Friday excluding several news organizations that have done stories angering President Donald Trump and his team.

Signees ask ABC News President James Goldston to "take a public stand. Refuse to take part in any future White House briefings based on an invitation list of who's in/who's out."

The petition was due to be delivered on Wednesday. An ABC News representative did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Signees include Reagan-era White House correspondent Sam Donaldson and former ABC reporters Ken Kashiwahara, Jeanne Meserve and Lynn Sherr. Among the executives are four former executive producers of "World News Tonight" and top leaders at "Nightline," ''20/20" and "Good Morning America." Prominent news executives Rick Kaplan, Bill Lord, Paul Friedman, Av Westin and Tom Yellin signed, along with documentarian and the late anchor Peter Jennings' widow, Kayce Freed Jennings.

The letter called last Friday's incident "an alarming new development enacted by an administration that has declared war on respected news outlets."

Trump has included ABC News in his labeling of media organizations that are the "enemy of the American people" and "fake news." ABC was included in Spicer's briefing last Friday, where access was denied to CNN, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Politico and BuzzFeed. Reporters from other organizations, including The Associated Press, USA Today and Time magazine, refused to attend the briefing in protest.

The ABC News reporter in the briefing, Cecilia Vega, asked Spicer why the other news organizations were excluded and shared audio of the briefing with people who weren't included. The White House has said that with space limited in Spicer's office, they included "pool" reporters who share information in instances where there isn't enough room for the entire press corps.

In calling for Goldston to speak out, the letter from former ABC Newsers noted a strong public protest by Dean Baquet, executive editor of The New York Times, and statements by The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg that they would not participate in future briefing where reporters are barred.

In addition to that, the two will write books. They signed deals with publisher Penguin Random House this week.

>> Obama says he'll write a book and 'be quiet for a while' after White House exit

Penguin Random House announced Tuesday that it will publish and acquire world rights to the Obamas' forthcoming books.

"We are absolutely thrilled to continue our publishing partnership with President and Mrs. Obama," the publisher's CEO, Markus Dohle, said in a statement. "With their words and their leadership, they changed the world, and every day, with the books we publish at Penguin Random House, we strive to do the same. Now, we are very much looking forward to working together with President and Mrs. Obama to make each of their books global publishing events of unprecedented scope and significance."

The financial terms of the agreement are unclear, but according to the New York Times, "publishing industry executives with knowledge of the bidding process said it probably stretched well into eight figures." The Financial Times, citing people briefed on the auction, reported that the publisher will pay more than $65 million for the rights to two books.

According to the New York Times, opening offers for the former president's newest book alone ranged from $18 million to $20 million.

The Obamas plan to donate a "significant portion" of the proceeds from the book sales to charity, including the Obama Foundation, the Associated Press reported.

According to the Times, "Penguin Random House also plans to donate 1 million books in the Obama family's name to First Book, a nonprofit organization that provides books to disadvantaged children, and Open eBooks, the Washington-based partner for the 2016 White House digital education initiative."

A publishing official told the AP that Barack Obama's book will be "a straightforward memoir about his presidency," while Michelle Obama's book will be an inspirational story that draws upon her life experiences.

Titles and release dates were not immediately available. 

In 2012, Crown published Michelle Obama's "American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America." Barack Obama has had books published for over a decade, including "Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters," "Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance" and "The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream."
