Something I never thought I’d say

Billy Joel rocks. He does.

If you didn’t see him on the NBC Hurricane fundraiser, go find it.

Guy Adams still nipping at NBC’s butt and good for him

He’s still on Twitter even if his #shutupmattlauer was shut down by the cowards at Twitter when NBC took to the fainting couch.

Today, he’s got a little something up at The Independent, and he’s still piling it on. Oddly I’ve not seen this story over here . . . have you?

Controversy over the coverage of the Olympics on American television deepened today when NBC was accused of deliberately editing footage of the women’s team gymnastics in order to create what critics called “fake suspense.”

This follows the already . . .

. . . widespread criticism of NBC for preventing network TV viewers watching key Olympic events live. They are forced instead to tune into commercial-laden highlights packages aired during evening prime-time.

And all this to ‘break even’ as their earnings are projected to do. They wanted the prestige I assume. FAIL.

ComcastGEMSNBC and Olbermann broke up

About 20 minutes after Comcast bought NBC or NBC bought Comcast or GE bought everything in the entire frackin’ world, Keith Olbermann stepped down from his rich throne at MSNBC. After he branded their network (giving liberals a place to go when Bush made their teeth hurt) they said ‘ahh, just get outta here.’

People who know him (and suddenly everyone in media knows Keith very very well) say it was probably him as much as the network – Olbermann does things his way and famously does not suffer fools. Which would make him a bad fit with corporate overlords.

A surprise for sure. Perhaps time. We’ll see. The guy was often over the top, but his voice resonated.

I will keep asking

Why is Luke Russert on my teevee?
