(Read part one from yesterday first, we suggest.) We were writing about whether history has any lessons for us about potential consequences of a skin-baring entertainment culture. On that topic, there

We certainly didn’t expect a change when we spent a few moments this evening monitoring the radio show of Mark Levin, who’s already on our Shameful list. And, sadly, we were correct.

Today’s pop culture embraces talent but also skin and too many artists succumb to making their bodies as much a part of their performances as their artistic abilities. Writer and producer Rahki Kumar (pictured) presents an eloquent argument against such behavior in

Will Hollywood follow through and respect the victims of the Newport carnage?

We have agreed with those who believe that a culture of violence in the entertainment industry could be one contributing factor to criminal activity. But we note that analyzing what leads to crime is a complicated issue. Mental illness should be a focal point to discovering when it is a cause of vicious acts. In […]

The entertainment show Extra tonight covered the CBS 60 Minutes interview with Bernie Madoff’s wife, Ruth, and his son, Chris. Both said they had no knowledge of Bernie’s Ponzi scheme.

CBS’s Sunday Morning, which we believe is the best program on network television, highlighted interns in its cover (first) story today. A typically wonderful piece reported by Rita Braver, it explored the phenomenon of unpaid interns, the status of a majority of those seeking experience designed to land a full-time job.

Jim Parsons, best known for his Emmy and Golden Globe award winning role as Sheldon in the tv series, The Big Bang Theory, is respectful to what he has. On CBS’s Sunday Morning (the best show on television, we believe) today, he spoke of some of his blessings: being in a Broadway show, The Normal […]

One of the hosts of the show interviewed Andrew Breitbart, who broke the story of Anthony Wiener’s sexual communications, including photos and conversation, with what Weiner says were six women. She asked whether Weiner’s wife should stay with him. Questions like this are completely inappropriate. He is not a family relations specialist, a psychologist, or […]
