I just couldn't take it anymore. The show is going nowhere and especially coming after the awesome Heroes, it just doesn't work.
There are two topics that never let me down when I need something to write about, two subjects that are always there for me that I can count on to be amusing or infuriating enough to be able to turn into decent copy. One is, of course, CNN, because you can practically set your watch by the network doing something really inexcusably stupid; the other is the entirely predictable outrage from the professional left over one silly thing or another. To wit, today -- when both of these favorite topics are coming through for me like gangbusters.
At first glance it's hard to imagine that CBS would risk the credibility of one of the most venerated news shows on television and one of its star players just to promote a stupid book -- and it probably wasn't as cut-and-dry as that. But make no mistake: there was corporate synergy of some kind at work in the 60 Minutes report.
