  • 9/11 Plus 20: TV Marks Two-Decade Anniversary Milestone by Adam Buckman (TVBlog on 09/09/2021)

    I thought Netflix: Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror was exceptionally interesting and worthwhile. 

  • Did Anyone Watch The Olympics? by Cory Treffiletti (Media Insider on 08/11/2021)

    Cory: I might posit that we would all still like to see Olympic competition, but I think NBC is to blame for a terrible viewing experience from screens split with ads larger than the adjacent competition to "highlights" that combined, say three hours of tennis. into five minutes. I appreciate the time difference was a challenge, but I think NBC really screwed up the delivery.  

  • Why is Everthing Now 'Unprecedented'? by Gord Hotchkiss (Media Insider on 08/10/2021)

    Thank you for your thoughts Gord...they were, well, unprecedented.

  • What's Missing From TV News? That Guy Who Used To Be President by Adam Buckman (TVBlog on 07/29/2021)

    and the world is a better place.

  • 'Show Me The Money' In College Sports by Cory Treffiletti (Media Insider on 07/14/2021)

    While I agree with you that players with brand recognition should be allowed to make deals, you have to understand that all this is doing is adding another layer of corruption to a system that has been extraordinarily corrupt for decades. You can be sure that those brand players have been getting paid by wealthy alumni ( re: " car dealers") in the form of jobs for their relatives, shopping sprees, free meals, loaned cars and everyone's favorite...cash. I don't  see this changing with the new opportunity to make money above the table.

  • Know When To Fold 'Em by George Simpson (MediaDailyNews on 04/01/2021)

    Cheers John. Hope all is well down under. I know it's been a tough year but you Aussies are a tough bunch.  I'll miss hearing your POV.  g

  • Know When To Fold 'Em by George Simpson (MediaDailyNews on 04/01/2021)

    Thank you all for your generous comments, but this is not a joke. No one wants to be the guy at the dinner party everyone is silently hoping will shut the hell up and just go home. I may write again from time to time, but for now it is a fond farewell and thanks for reading. g

    Thank you JS. As Ted Koppel once said when asked why Nightline wasn't a full hour, "I rather leave an audience wanting more instead of getting bored."

  • How NOT To Do Corporate Social Media by Kaila Colbin (Media Insider on 03/26/2021)

    Scott Keeler: when a column is marked "commentary" as this one is, it is meant to signal that this is not in fact a "news" story, but an opinion by the author.  If you have a "huge lesson" for readers, then give it. But it will only be regarded as your opinion - as it should be in this space.
