It’s not something that bothers me, but it is something that would be nice if they did something about it.
I’m talking about the concentration of conservative viewpoints all under NewsCorp’s umbrella. No one complained when Glenn Beck left CNN to join Fox or John Stossel left his post at ABC to go on Fox Business. These are all good things. But add in Rupert Murdoch’s purchase of the Wall Street Journal and the paranoid types might think a monopoly is being formed.
That’s why this is such a good idea:
I’d also love to see a National Review channel on basic cable. Why not? There’s 700 channels devoted to Iron Chefs, people who refurbish homes, midgets, people with bizarre medical conditions, families with 26 kids and, of course, a rash of programs about New Jersey douchebags who ham it up in front of a camera. And don’t get me started about the cross overs; New Jersey douchebag chefs and families of 26 health-impaired midgets who flip real estate. I know, my wife likes all of them.
I can envision a reality show that follows Jonah Goldberg around with a handheld camera as he works the DC circuit rubbing elbows with James Carville and Tucker Carlson. I’m not sure how, but if we could work in some sort of sex angle that would help. Maybe Goldberg stakes out upscale Georgetown bars and scopes out Pols and their young aspiring staff? We could have a special gay week where Larry Craig and Eric Massa!
OK, maybe not.
But my original point stands, it is a good thing or something like that.
