How Not to Promote Yourself…aka…How to Make Yourself Look Like a Complete Idiot.

TVNewser’s Chris Ariens notes that FBN’s Eric Bolling just put his foot in it big time on Twitter…

No disrespect meant to my old friend Mark (RIP, bud)…but…I finally made it above Mark Haines in Mediaite’s power rankings!

Setting aside the obvious complete disrespect Bolling shows here, and let’s face it…Bolling has gotten shriller and shriller ever since he got his own show so it shouldn’t be too big a surprise to see such a self-centered, tone deaf, pissing on Haines’ grave type comment…the fact is that Mediaite’s Power Grid works based on someone’s profile visibility on TV and in print/online.

In other words, Haines’ death is the very reason why Bolling went past him, not because Bolling is such hot shit. Of course, such an obvious thing would never ever occur to Bolling. He’s far too busy preening in the mirror and checking his Power Grid ranking. What little spare time he has is probably spent checking his Q scores.

  1. Saw this on Facebook last night. I don’t draw as many conclusions as you do from this (self centered, preening, etc), but I agree that this is disrespectful. Sometimes people think they absolve themselves of responsibility for their words by saying “no offense” or in this case “no disrespect.” Instead you come off as an arrogant ahole.

    Simply shameful.

    Fire his ass at once!

    It’s called dramatic license…

  4. It was a huge mistake, but I think he meant it as a tribute to his “old friend”, as in, “It took my friend dying for me to pass him.” I assume Bolling thinks it’s the kind of dark humor Haines would’ve appreciated.

  5. Joe, I see it your way too. Perhaps if he hadn’t included the exclamation point, it would have seemed less gleeful.

    This is the problem with twitter, facebook, etc. It is hard to fully express a thought in such a limited way.
