TV personalities don't need to be intelligently analytical, well-informed, highly educated with a broad vision of world affairs.

Let's illustrate a case: Every time, Ms. Greta van Susteren asks her guest a question, particularly on legal matters and socio-political issues, the correct answers were already provided in her polite and eloquent silence. For, we know that Ms. van Susteren already knew the answers, being a lawyer herself. However, she allows her guests to give their opinions without interrupting them. The French call this "Le Beau Geste". Ms. Monica Crowley is blessed with a brilliant analytical mind, a high level of education and a captivating persona.

 

"THE MONICA CROWLEY SHOW": AMERICA'S BEST RADIO TALK SHOW"

Those qualities are a rare commodity in the world of American media. Dr. Crowley is currently hosting  a very successful radio show in New York "THE MONICA CROWLEY SHOW" and millions of viewers and watchers are benefiting from her impressive experience and wisdom. But, she does not have a show on national television. None of the TV networks in the United States offered this bright young lady a deal on the wheel!  Occasionally, she "sits in" for some anchors and hosts at FoxNews. How do you explain this phenomenon? Another brilliant mind is Anne Coulter. She is the author of several authoritative and informative books on politics. Occasionally she appears on national television. So far, Ms. Coulter does not have her own TV show. Brilliant minds are kept in storage. Silly big mouth hash-hash anchors and hosts grab the spotlights. And they are doing fine. They don't need to be intelligently analytical, well-informed, highly educated with a broad vision of world affairs. What they have and need to do is to be either aggressive, talkative, agitators or silly. Silliness is like hot bread. You eat it when it is hot. You eat it when it is cold. It depends on how much and how bad you need that loaf of bread. Almost 87% of the American tube viewers tuned unconsciously to their TV sets. And 82% of American TV watchers flip their remote control every 4 minutes. Since, there is no continuity and logical synthesis in the commentaries of the anchors and show hosts, changing programs and constantly flipping stations would not affect the quality nor the importance of "chronologically following" the news and listening to the commentaries. So, keep on flipping and changing stations. You are not going to miss a thing!

THE BUZZ: PEOPLE YOU CAN'T FORGET

DIVA ALISON ENGLAND      By Maximillien de Lafayette & Germaine Poitiers.

Wherever she goes, every time she sings...and no matter how seriously humoristic or dramatically funny she acts and tells you stories the sparkling and magnificent American Soprano, Alison England steals the show, captures your heart, makes your head spin if you are an adult...and awakes one million rainbows of joy and happiness in your eyes and heart, if you are a child! Opera divas are unpredictable! We hate them or adore them. Maria Callas was adored by her fans around the globe, yet the critics hearts remained ice cold, for  when they dipped their pen in the ink of their minds and souls to write about the Greek goddess,  cold lines and parabolas of criticism enveloped their words. Deborah Voight took Vienna by storm.
