Breakfast Scramble (Thursday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Bitsblog Echo Syndrome, I found it amusing to see Dana Milbank hitting Arianna Huffington from the same angle as I scramble the other day, for being a capitalistist pig, from the Washington Post [1]:

Did Arianna Huffington just sell out her fellow progressives?

In the literal sense, she undoubtedly has: The sale of Huffington Post to AOL for $315 million (including a large pile of cash going to Huffington herself) means this powerful liberal voice is formally joining the “corporate media” its writers have long disparaged.

It has not been the habit of Bitsblog to take the Puffington Post seriously, more Milbnaks:

AOL Chairman Tim Armstrong said he thinks “Arianna has the same interest we do, which is serving consumers’ needs and going beyond the just straight political needs of people.” Huffington agreed, boasting that only 15 percent of her eponymous site’s traffic is for politics (that’s down from 50 percent a couple of years ago), and she emphasized that politics is just one of two dozen “sections,” including a new one devoted to covering divorces.

The marriage of Puffington and AOL should take  journwhoreism to new lows.

Shelly Jackson Lee v. Pepsi, Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee is offended by this Super Bowl commercial, video:

Jackson-Lee, from Pete Kasperowicz, Hill [2]:

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took to the House floor Tuesday night to criticize what she called a “demeaning” Pepsi ad that aired during the Super Bowl.

It is also funny.  Look Shelly Baby, it the Pepsi commercial offends you, then don’t buy Pepsi.  Call it freedom of choice.

Look the reason that advertising pay such exorbitant ad rates for the Super Bowl is that is the largest male television audience of the year.  And lord knows, the male mind is pretty simple.¬† We just ain’t evolved enough to handle nuance
