Jan 9th 2011 10:35AM I doubt that the reporter was out there in the field by himself. Therefore, the real question ought to be, "Why didn't the people behind the camera, any of whom should have seen the event clearly, alert the reporter to what was going on behind him?" Not to mention the fact that the event had already begun before the studio switched to the location. If the folks behind the camera had been alert, the first sight of the reporter on screen would have been of him facing away from the camera reacting to the event. The failure here was not the reporter's. The fault lies with whomever was with him.
Dec 12th 2010 3:52PM Spot on, Red! The Schroeder bits in these cartoons were the first (as I recall) to recognize the need to add a little humor meant just for the grown-ups who were watching with their kids. Clearly, the folks who later created Pixar were paying very close attention.
Dec 12th 2010 3:48PM Mine too, Jay! Yet, I wonder how much of this article is revisionist history. I doubt that there were many (if any) real complaints to this part of the special back in 1965. It's much more likely that someone in 2010 is trying to create the illusion of controversy where it never really existed. Afterall, regardless of religion, what's so controversial about a holiday dedicated to the principle of "Peace on Earth, Good Will toward Humanity"?
Nov 27th 2010 8:37AM Although it is true that Elmo was cute and entertaining, his arrival 25 years ago also signalled the end of Sesame Street's legitimacy as an educational program. The decision on the part of Kevin Clash to create a character that doesn't use pronouns influenced a generation of kids to believe it's okay to constantly refer to themselves in the third-person. Elmo is 25 now. Maybe it's time he started using pronouns like intelligent users of the English language.
Nov 13th 2010 3:01PM This article is a confusing mess! The headline says Lohan is telling Lovato to "shut up about YOUR daughter" (suggesting that Lovato ought to keep quiet about what's going on with Demi) but the quote from Lohan inside the article indicates he's telling Lovato to stop talking about Lindsay Lohan. I can't tell from this who's talking about who. Maybe they should all shut up - including the alleged journalist responsible for this report.
Oct 3rd 2010 11:22AM "You are angry that some new channel has the audacity to call the liberal media on all their hypocrisy and flat out lies..."
... and replace it with their own hypocrisy and flat out lies. The fact is that anyone who is willing to take anything they hear or see from the media at face value is a fool.
Sep 6th 2010 11:57AM Good point, James. That's why it's a necessary part of the process to cut up the cards you're trying to pay off - and to cancel the accounts associated with those cards the moment the balance reaches zero. Otherwise, it's a vicious cycle that becomes inescapable.

Apr 21st 2010 8:10PM Does this mean Nimoy is also retiring from directing? That would be sad because he has a unique vision.
Aug 8th 2007 9:12AM Consider, if you will, that Bonds already had the credentials to be a first-ballot hall-of-famer based solely upon his 20th century career. In 1999, 2 years before anyone claims he touched the juice, Barry was voted one of the 100 greatest players in MLB history. If you must hate him for allegedly taking advantage of a loophole in MLB rules (he did not "cheat") then feel free to disregard the home run record in your own mind. But don't dismiss a brilliant hall-of-fame career because of 2 years of allegedly questionable behavior.
