    Awesome work, NBC. Sorry, fat, old employees...you can work off-camera.

    When will you old fatties learn? TV networks don't want you on camera.

    Unless you are Charles Barkley.

    I saw this this morning.

    If that doesn't tell you all you need to know about television journalism, nothing will.

    I want to know how the conversation went down. "Hey fatty, we ned you to move over to this cubicle tonight so that our hottie intern can sit in your seat."

    Intern: "Please don't make me sit in his seat. The springs on this office chair are busted and there are fried chicken crumbs all over the desk."

    That's ironic. Isn't NBC the network that airs "The Biggest Loser?"

    IMO, they should put as many fatties as they can possibly fit in the background and consider it a free promo.

    Come on, NBC. Don't go halfway. Take that next step. Put them back there in swimsuits. Better yet, completely nude.

    NBC News. You know you want it.

    In my local market, the FOX affiliate has pushed out two long-term journalists in exchange for younger anchors. Oh, yeah, its a Tribune station. One of the girls has no business being on camera, but daddy is apparently a BFF of one of the Trib chairman

    The only "news background" most of the lot has consists of the local daily and a set of scissors.

    Gee, the New York Post trashing NBC, color me surprised. The same column trashed Luke Russert, but doesn't seem to have a problem with Doocey's kid joining Fox News.
