Have we reached such a level in network news, in our growing minority base of women, Latinos, African Americans and everybody else that Brian Williams of NBC’s Nightly News had to say it. The last two Secretary of State leaders were women. The incredible Hilary Clinton who just left the job will go down in history as one of the most respected Secretary of State persons ever.
Brian Williams and Brad PItt
Let’s be fair. Condoleeza Rice was fantastic. She was huge. One of the best as well. She will run for President one day, maybe take on Hilary Clinton which would be one hell of a battle. But despite my liberalism I kinda like Condi. She’s simply awesome.
Prior to that there was the best of the best, Colin Powell as Secretary of State. He ticks off a lot of conservatives, is a true moderate Republican that you can actually like and was great in the position.
But John Kerry is a white dude. The first white dude in 16 years that has held the position of Secretary of State. And NBC’s Brian Williams, host of Nightly News made a big deal about it during tonight’s broadcast.
Wow! Hearing Paul Harvey again from an old school radio guy almost brought tears to the eyes. The Ram Trucks God Made a Farmer commercial in the SuperBowl was special for me. Being a radio guy for all my life, since I was 17 years old and when AM radio was King and Paul Harvey was the King of All Media, well this commercial does it.
Well the lights are back, the SuperBowl, if that’s what you want to call it, is back in action and it looks like the San Francisco 49ers have become pretenders instead of contenders. Can’t wait for Elementary to come on after the broadcast of this boring game so I’m just surfing through some of my broadcast trade magazines via email to read so of the interesting content on the web.
Here’s one you’ll like. And why you don’t follow some dude in to his business because after watching this video you’ll see why that practice is not a good idea.
Half the power popped out at the Mercedes Benz SuperBowl went dark and now half the stadium is lit up for the big game. Wow! And Baltimore is crushing the 49ers so it only prolongs the most one-sided SuperBowl (for now) in history.
Give the world a break. Give these white boys with Jamaican accents a break as well but this SuperBowl ad from VolksWagen is no where near as bad as seen from McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken. Anyway judge for yourself.
Fantastic! She tried daytime television. Several times. That didn’t work. I think it was like maybe three tries with a daytime talk co-host role, one where she actually could have been successful had her ego not gotten in her own way and the other as Roseanne Barr tried to help Oprah Winfrey launch her cable television network OWN.
Now Roseanne Barr has made the right move. And NBC is grabbing on to the former Roseanne star to work with the comic on a new comedy for the network. The agreement is a development deal with Universal to work on this new project. Roseanne Barr currently has a reality show running on Lifetime which is the only television content from the actress-comedian. She and her Roseanne star John Goodman actually tried to work together again on a comedy last year but that project did not come to fruition so Roseanne Barr is moving on to this new television comedy.
Um, I’m thinking Roseanne Barr has found her place. Back on network television.
