america’s next top hypocrite

While I tend to get angry with people who chose to follow relatively inconsequential things like the Michael Jackson child molestation case instead of paying attention to what’s going on in DC, like the current situation with Jeff Gannon, I have to confess that I’m getting more than just a little excited that the new season of “America’s Next Top Model” is starting tomorrow… “Maybe it won’t be quite so pathetic,” I think, “If I’m reading The Atlantic during commercials.”

And, speaking of good TV, it’s also worth noting that the second season of HBO’s Deadwood starts March 6.

…And, as long as I brought up Gannon, I should tell you that it looks as though Arnold Schwarzenegger is taking a page from the Bush playbook when it comes to propaganda. Here’s a clip form the LA Times on the Governator’s “aggressive message management”:

Using taxpayer money, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s administration has sent television stations statewide a mock news story extolling a proposal that would benefit political boosters in the business community by ending mandatory lunch breaks for many hourly workers.

The tape looks like a news report and is narrated by a former television reporter who now works for the state. But unlike an actual news report, it does not provide views critical of the proposed changes. Democrats have denounced it as propaganda. Snippets aired on as many as 18 stations earlier this month, the administration said….

The narrator says the proposal would permit workers to “eat when they are hungry, and not when the government tells them.”

Do you believe that shit?

    It’s good to know about these two premiers, but I really wish you would have let us know that Omorosa was going to be on Fear Factor. I’ll never forgive you for that.

    I want to watch the premiere of the America’s Next Top Model cycle 4 but tonight is also Lost the Hurley backstory episode of Lost. Sadly this is the biggest decision for me I’ll make all week. The solution of course is to watch Lost and catch ANTM when it repeats on Friday.

    Yeah, we missed America’s Next Top Model tonight. I guess we’ll catch it Friday.
