"Prepare for a news shit storm."

This is a good place to drop general and weird news, entertainment, and general show prep material that might be interesting to air talent or producers. Hot dog threads ALWAYS welcome.

The Onion Goes Viral With Video
Before The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report, there was The Onion. So why hasn't the satirical weekly taken a swipe at broadcast journalism yet?

Check out my post from last year on Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

(sigh)

And I am not even measuring the sucess of Alpert after the TJB.

I am beginning to see the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a crock of crap that stinks instead of the effluent that makes things grow that is all the other halls of fame.
Still not making the connection there.
