HOT: “Fiscal Cliff”, Syria dominate news cycle.
NOT HOT: Roger Ailes wanting Patreaus to run for President. If MSNBC’s exec or a network exec did the same thing, the headlines from FOX and RW media would be very different than the headlines about FOX were.
NOT HOT: FOX’s fictional “War on Christmas”.
HOT: Smart people telling the truth about lies and false equivalency.
NOT: Hot/Not contributions that have nothing to do with cable news or any other news media.
NOT: the US media neglects to cover the massive takeover by the Chinese petroleum giant CNOOC of the Canadian oil company Nexen, which has assets in the Gulf of Mexico. Our Prime Minister approved the takeover because he had to appease China due to the lethargic American economy (75% of our exports are US-bound and demand has been falling for quite awhile). Chinese state-owned enterprises are slowing entering North America.
^ Don’t expect our media terrified of being called liberal to say a word about this. Free markets, don’tcha know..
Hardly terrified. Just winking and nodding.
HOT: CNN does a better job reporting NBC’s breaking Syria scoop than NBC ever could. What’s up with that?!?!?! You would think NBC really wished they had a 24 hr news channel to brag about these things.
HOT: Soledad promoting another Black in America documentary.
What, am I the only one? …
NOT HOT: Cable news presidents talking smack. Really boys, I would let the people who were meant to be in front of the camera do the talking.
Sorta HOT: Poor Jake Tapper, always a bridesmaid, never a bride. Hey, I hear CNN is lookin’ for a date? CNN is desperate with money to burn.
My weekly NOT rant: Tonight on Justice with Judge Jeanine: Benghazi, sarin gas in Syria, the fiscal cliff. How is she qualified to host segments on any of this?
Well, she is not an Obama liberal boot-licker which seems to be the prime qualification at that other network, so I’m not sure.
“Tonight on Justice with Judge Jeanine: Benghazi, sarin gas in Syria, the fiscal cliff. How is she qualified to host segments on any of this?”
^^ Very few hosts, on any network, not named Fareed Zakaria; are “qualified to host” a show on those topics. You don’t need to be an expert on a subject to host a show (although it is helpful); you just need viewers and thus good ratings. It’s entertainment the judge provides not knowledge.
