  • Suppose They Gave A Press Briefing And Nobody Came? by Joe Mandese (Red, White & Blog on 11/14/2018)

    I like the idea of interns doing it. I also thought of this: How about one day in which the press corps only asks the kind of questions Trump would like. Or ask questions in a modified Fox News style: Mr President everybody appreciates your strong stance with European nations, instead of coddling them like the other presidents did. Can you tell the American people which country you think is the most disgusting one that you hate the most? 

  • Streaming Is Way Up For NFL This Season by P.J. Bednarski (Marketing Daily on 10/09/2018)

    Maybe I'm the only one who thought the Breitbart passage was telling for its desperation-- that even the fact the executives mention the protests was an "important developlent." I apologize to any readers who thought I contributed to giving the Breitbart outfit any legitimacy as a news site.

    I agree, Tom, and I think my story reflects that point. I used the Breitbart comment only to show that regardles of less combustible things called "facts," some news sources continue to make the NFL's ratings a political issue. 

  • Bite-Sized Mobile Viewing Pitches TV In A New Way by Wayne Friedman (TV Watch on 08/08/2018)

    You're probably mostly right, Ed. But producers could script short program segments that could do it at scale; that banter on "NCIS" gets extended; the more or less incidental kitchen conversation on a sitcom gets fleshed out; or you reinvent a soap opera for younger viewers that also works as its own program, pieced together from the daily separate encounters. This isn't exactly a new idea: Fox introduced "mobisodes" in 2004 (it did one minute segments from "24) and others revived or copied the idea. In fact Verizon's Go90 did it, with no one watching. That ended way back. . . at the end of July. 

  • What Serves The Public Conversation Best by Joe Mandese (Red, White & Blog on 08/08/2018)

    Joe, it seems to me volume creates/allows social media to avoid responsibility. There's so much posted to YouTube and Facebook, they at best they have had a  "stop it once it already happened" policy, something like Nancy Pelosi's distorted quote, "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it" re Obamacare. Broadcasters, I guess, still fear regulation and that keeps really offensive stuff off TV, and they're dying. Cable with no regulation except the marketplace that can lead to real disconnects, pushes boundaries. But the Internet has until now celebrated its lack of judgment or accountability, fortified by just how much gets put up there. There's no accounting for taste. That's how lots of digital entrepreneurs got rich.

  • Papa John's' PR Crisis Explodes As Schnatter Resigns by Karlene Lukovitz (Marketing Daily on 07/12/2018)

    I'd like to order 1 large racist pizza chain founder to go  

  • 'Sharp Objects' Offers The Worst Our World Has To Offer by Adam Buckman (TVBlog on 07/06/2018)

    Oh, that TV could find some happy medium. In the fading episodic days of network TV, everything got wrapped up in one hour, and the star of the detective/cop/doctor/lawyer show once again escaped death/disgrace/defeat for another week. Impossibly heroic! Now, the limited series contains only one crime or situation and so we get a lot of back story, flashback, macabre sad sidestories, mostly silent stars, sadness

  • U.S. Leads In Data Buys For Back-To-School Campaigns by Laurie Sullivan (Digital News Daily on 07/06/2018)

    Thank God you were talking about LAST year back to school. I was in a store (brick, door, people, shelves) yesterday and saw their back to school display and it is July 6. 

  • Jell-O Launches Line of Edible Toys by Karlene Lukovitz (Marketing Daily on 06/27/2018)

    I see a line of millennials at the jello counter.
