You are not going to miss a thing!

Photos from L to R: #1. Mr. Larry
King. A perfect gentleman and seasoned talk how host. #2. Dr. Monica Crowley
host of The Monica Crowley Show; one of America's most intelligent and
respected news personalities. A real national gem!
American media is a
contemplative product. A blend of autocratic ideology and individualistic
comprehension of events. American journalists including an avalanche of TV
commentators and talk show hosts seem to know everything. Yes sir, they talk
about every imaginable topic. Mr. Bill O'Reilly, (honest and sharp!)
for instance, at ease and with permissive critical approach nightly argues
about an astonishing variety of delicate subjects, topics and themes,
ranging from questioning the loyalty of President Bush's former senior
advisors to same-sex marriage, and from global ecology to immigration and
naturalization services, and from questioning the validity and honesty of a
ruling by a judge in the State of Florida to salty or sweet water on Mars.
The two guys and "lovely" Juliet Hudy of the FoxNews morning show
“FOX AND FRIENDS” have answers to all your questions. Certainly, they
are entertaining and easy to follow but, their conquest and analysis of
world affairs, Spanish political dynamics, President Chirac's political
ideology, Bin Laden's underwear, Michael Jackson lipstick and
astrophysics-outer-of-space latest technologies are a little bit "too much"
for the trio. On
the American tube, the
host and the commentator become the news. however, the sparkling laughs of
Juliet Hudy are worth millions to the audience. Good for her!
They are the show!
They know everything and they talk about everything. Nevertheless, we rush
to our TV sets to watch them and amuse ourselves. They dissect news when
they occur and invent them when the world events ponds become stagnant.
However, they are colorful, animated, agitated and easy to like or
disregard. Watching the American tube is a rare experience at many levels.
The alert viewer must begin to wonder whether he or she is listening to
world events or simply watching the anchor or newscaster. In that context,
the host and the commentator become the news. They are the show!
Consequently, commenting on news and delicate political issues become
irrelevant, for the American radio and TV program hosts will inject into
the veins of the debate and analysis their very personal conviction,
subjective opinions, crafty visions and silly jokes. However, a very small
number of political analysts and contributors of the American media excel
in their analysis and "projected" interpretation of facts, suppositions,
points of views and unnecessary eloquent prologues and monologues. Few of
them invite you to think and allow you to understand "what's really is
going on". Among the most alert, informed and credible media commentators,
analysts and talk shows hosts are Ms. Greta Van Susteren, Ms. Anne
Coulter, Ms. Laura Ingraham, Ms. Monica Crowley, Ms. Candy Crowley,
Mr. Bill Schneider, Mr. Chris Matthews, Ms. Catherine Crier, Ms. Deborah
Norville, Ms. Judy Woodruff, Ms. Judy Woodruff, Mr. Larry King, Mr.
Charlie Rose, Mr. Aaron Brown, Mr. Geraldo Rivera, Mr. Jeff Greenfield,
and Mr. Bill Schneider. Take those names out, and the American news
and TV entertainment factory becomes "Toys R US".
IF YOU KNOW THEIR
NAMES, THEN THEY ARE REALLY HOT!!
