Video Wire: Chris Cuomo: Its OK for Prince Harry to get killed

Published: Tuesday, March 04, 2008

We've said some pretty shitty things in the past and we have no regrets about them. But Good Morning America's Chris Cuomo is a uber Dick Head for his comment about Prince Harry being expendable so that’s why he was allowed to go to Afghanistan because he isn't the heir to the throne. Basically what Cuomo is saying is that, it's OK for Prince Harry to get killed as long as Prince William is safe. OK so admittedly we could care less about the whole prince this queen that crock but wow! Wait why do we care what Chris Cuomo said about Prince Harry? This is kinda odd! Harry wouldn’t even have gotten bitten by a mosquito because he was nowhere near any danger. Your still a dick though Cuomo


Rupert Murdoch on his plans for the Journal, its competitors and what he would have done if he was the Financial Times

Published: Thursday, December 13, 2007


Moments after he officially took control of Dow Jones, Rupert Murdoch did what any other media mogul who owns a cable business network would have done, he stopped by his Fox Business News studios for a sit down with FBN lead anchor Neil Cavuto. In his strong Aussie twang, Rupert speaks of what’s to come for the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones. Rupe totally forgetful of the fact that with the Thomson-Reuters merger Dow Jones will have to work double time to become a prominent player in financial information says he wants it to be the preeminent source of financial news and information. Asked by Cavuto if he bought a dinosaur Rupert of course did not and does not believe that. We look forward to what’s coming.

Sex and business, the two go hand in hand like coffee and scones... um...OK yeah

Published: Wednesday, October 17, 2007

At Fox Business no topic is untouchable especially if it is some how tied to well....business. A Fox Business panel discusses how long hours at the office can hurt your sex life. However what they fail to understand is that, late hours at the office usually means "Oh honey I am staying back at the office tonight so I can bang my hot new assistant" So it depends on the situation right?

Are long hours at the office hurting or helping your sex life?

Video Wire: Walt Mossberg adds his two cents to the whole Viacom Youtube shit hole while schooling us on copyright laws

Published: Thursday, March 22, 2007


Sometimes its good to hear a calming voice explain what needs to be done to prevent copyright wars between media companies. We just wish Walt avoided mentioning the Viacom Youtube thing which is slowly becoming painful for us. But we guess he had to, being that it made for a perfect example for his lesson on copyright and piracy issues. And Walt, you're right, it should not be considered piracy of you download a song and share it with your wife, after all that's what marriage is all about right? Sharing.

Published: Friday, March 16, 2007

Is it true? Does Fox News have no love for Black America or are they just saying what's on their mind? Everyone knows Rupert Murdoch is all about the Republican Party and uses his many media vehicles to promote his Republican views, is this one of his many views as well?

Eugene Morris: In order for marketers to understand black folks, they have to walk in our shoes

Published: Friday, March 02, 2007

-Shomari Hines

Yesterday in Vegas the 4A's Media Conference kicked off with the whose is who in advertising saying their piece on ad practices and ways to better understand minority consumers. However the one that stood out more to us was Eugene Morris, head of E. Morris Communications who basically said advertisers and ad agencies need to do more to understand the African American consumer. He stopped short of saying they should move in with a black family to see how they live. Hmm a white ad exec from DDB moving in with a black family? This is some MTV reality TV shit right here.

E. Morris Communications founder Eugene Morris was the moderator for the session labeled "The Business Case for Diversity." But given the vast clear out of the hall as soon as this panel got going, MediaWorks was left to wonder who was left to hear the case. Still, it is an issue the industry better start figuring out, and Morris was quick to tell those in the room they better get a better plan than their current one -- getting multicultural representation within mainstream ad agencies by stealing from African-American and Hispanic shops. "One, that is not going to help the industry, and two, that is not going to help me," he said, because it leaves the industry with no net increase of staffers who aren't white.

Video Wire: The Logo-ization of Viacom

Published: Wednesday, December 27, 2006

Viacom seems to be a company big on tweaking. Over the years Viacom has tweaked not only it's management team but it's logo and theme music as well. Today, their is no music, and the logo is so simple, you can find the font in the most recent version of Photoshop. Then agains the same goes for other media companies as well. The logo has come along way and the video clip below seems to have captured this transformation over the years.

Video Wire: Youtubers continue to voice their opinions in creative ways

Published: Thursday, November 16, 2006

Youtube viewers are pissed at Viacom for demanding that all unauthorized content be pulled from the site and they aren't afraid t let it be known. But who really has time to miss out on their favorite MTV or Comedy Central show to boycott?

However some Youtubers have a more reasonable view of the big media companies:

boycotting viacom means boycotting the daily show and colbert report, which are rare among bad television. viacom is a very big corp., and most people don't even know what they own, which is a lot. they're not evil, just pursuing corporate interests. but when corps. get that big they can have a facist-type of effect on the media and distribution.

Comcast secretly sticks it to rival Time Warner, or is it just us?

Published: Tuesday, August 15, 2006

When Time Warner pushed off its high-speed customers on Comcast, they had to find a way to let them know. What better way to do that than the over exaggerated video clip below. One would think that Time Warner's service sucked incredibly based on the dancing, cheering and indirect down talking of Time Warner's service by the overacting actors in the clip.
