Those of you who aren't interning at CBS News might have missed the all-important fact that the president of CBS News got canned last week. I of course, do not have the luxury of being so innocent, as the blushing flower. Anyway, the new president of CBS News, is Sean McManus --who also heads up CBS sports. I am of course, all a-twitter about what my new boss will be like. Via the Sludge Report (R)
here's some not very encouraging news.
And for those of you who have no patience for fucking links, here's the run-down:
The situation: McManus, the new president, is in his first editorial meeting with the executive producers, is laying out the coming weeks news. Its been a big week Harriet Miers went down in flames. So did Cheney's top aid. And of course, you have hurricane Wilma...
"...they said, 'Sean, what are your thoughts?"' recalled McManus, who will remain as president of CBS Sports. "I just said, 'You have to move the White Sox to the top of the show, which is more important than all the Harriet Miers stuff.'"
Yeah dude. Fuck all that politics bullshit. Buch a' poncy layabouts anyway. Ain't teevee great?
Huh. My bad. Sludge got me again. But since his whole site is a joke anyway, I don't feel so bad.
