In your scraggly Thursday media column: CNN is proud of odd things, the Glenn Beck boycott is a failure, a lawsuit against Interview magazine, and Moe Tkacik takes DC.
Haha, CNN's new ad campaign features ads touting its three proudest journalistic moments of the year: Haiti; the Gulf Oil Disaster; and Shirley Sherrod. Shirley Sherrod? Shirley Sherrod. CNN: Shirley Sherrod.
Rupert Murdoch says that an ongoing boycott of Glenn Beck's show has had "zero impact" on Beck's revenue. Take that back to your hippie compound, losers.
The latest in the never-boring saga of Interview magazine: two former sales execs are suing the mag's management for more than $1 million in commissions they say they were cheated out of. Hey, if there's one thing we're sure of, it's that nobody involved has a million bucks. Just calm down.
Former Jezebel and Gawkerer Moe Tkacik is moving to DC to start a blog for the Washington City Paper, and to harass the media figures of DC that need to be harassed, until they are dead. We will follow her with interest!
