My Yahoo-fan wife notes that CBS “60 Minutes” man Morley Safer slammed his rivals at a panel for shilling for the Bens and Jens for the dough celebrity interviews can ka-ching in the ratings: “This cloying by various television reporters for the right to interview the slut du jour just becomes kind of a silly joke, something out of ‘Saturday Night Live,’” he said. CBS uses its “60″ time on more important matters…like propagandistic segments
from free-food lines
claiming ‘30 million Americans” are going hungry in the lean Bush years. (They just replayed that just last week.) Their slogan: we don’t do celebrities. We do misleading political hit pieces.
Safer also suggested that maybe those Ohioans needing free food ought to camp outside his house. “Thank God for the ratings,” he said. “If it wasn’t for the ratings, we wouldn’t all be millionaires.”
