  • Why Fox Wants You To Pay Attention To What David Levy Is Doing by Joe Mandese (MediaPost Weekend on 12/24/2016)

    I agree with you Joe, but I think when Fox first started, some complained that Fox owned stations were running off-network shows in the prime time access time period where first-run syndication,or local shows, were supposed to be. That would seem to be a violation of the rules. Fox argued that according to the FCC's definition of a TV network, Fox did not qualify, for most of the reasons Ed Papazian noted. It was not, by definition, a network. Maybe it still isn't. Murdoch used a loophole. What do you know!!

  • I'll Drink To That: The Worst TV Shows Of 2016 by Adam Buckman (TVBlog on 12/21/2016)

    I hope you keep up your negative attitude, Adam.

  • Comparing The '70s To Today After Stumbling On 'Sonny & Cher' by Adam Buckman (TVBlog on 11/21/2016)

    Were Sonny & Cher the Kardashians of that era?  Semi-scandalous, vapid, famous for being famous.Re "What were we thinking?" Sonny was elected to Congress. 

  • Will Trump Have A Media Enemies List? by P.J. Bednarski (VidBlog on 11/09/2016)

    I understand. The difference is that Obama's and Nixon's (and I assume others) were based on perceived offenses while those men were in elective office, and I would guess, were more about leaks and policy disagreements. Trump's will be about being made fun of. 

  • Beware The Native Of Brazile by Bob Garfield (Garfield at Large on 11/07/2016)

    Before all news channels, a news organization would need to find a close-to-the-Democratic-Party voice and send a crew, to get comment, or put her on live, ala Ted Koppel's Nightline. But because "news" goes on and on and on, on CNN, MSNBC and Fox, news execs need to nail their experts to the floor because they're gonna be there three hours not three or 30 minutes. Paid Consultancy does the trick. That's show biz!We now have more ways to be misinformed than ever, and it's paying off  

  • The Catch Up Viewer Catches Most Ads, Too by P.J. Bednarski (VidBlog on 09/29/2016)

    I think I agree with you. It was an oversight. I have mentioned FreeWheel's owner in the past, and I should have this time. That said, I don't see how this data was different than the kind of numbers reported by others. But more background information, as you say, would be better and I've gone back in to the piece to add it. Thanks.

  • The Fashion Business Dresses Down Bloggers by P.J. Bednarski (VidBlog on 09/28/2016)

    Good one!

  • Make American Great Again -- Banish People! by Barbara Lippert (Mad Blog on 09/01/2016)

    Who are any airline image ads for, anyway? There was a time people had "their" airline, but dereg and mergers took care of that. Nobody in the whole world, even those fliers with the right attitude, would choose American over another. It's all price and convenience, or worse, whatever is available. 

  • Subaru Puts Safety First In Spots by Tanya Gazdik (Marketing Daily on 08/29/2016)

    I own a Subaru. In fact, this is our fourth. It's a great car, and evidently pretty safe. But readers might want to know of this relatively new piece of info. A new test shows Subaru front seat passengers are not very safe. Because I think Subaru overall is a great car, I hope they fix this. Read/watch test video: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/front-seat-passengers-in-small-suvs-face-more-injury-than-drivers-in-frontal-crackups/

  • TV Critics Adopt Role Of Diversity Police, Attack CBS by Adam Buckman (TVBlog on 08/11/2016)

    Well, Adam, it's pack journalism possibly at the finest it can be. Everybody at TCA--or a lot of people anyway--asked questions on the same subject instead of hopping around from subject to subject as happens at many/most press conferences, which makes a lot of them worth less than they would if the speaker was grilled more. But inevitably, it does make the headlines read like a verdict because that's what it is.
