There’s no business like show business
It’s sweeps time.
Today’s NYTimes: Next week CBS’s 60 Minutes will interview Bob Woodward,
“whose soon-to-be-released book, “Plan of Attack,” reportedly will contain important new details about the administration’s decision to go to war against Iraq.”
“The Woodward interview, already taped, follows a similar interview with Richard A. Clarke, the former counterterrorism official whose book, “Against All Enemies,” described the administration as ill-prepared for the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
“Both books happen to be published by units of Simon & Schuster Inc., a company that is owned by the Viacom Corporation — which also happens to be the parent of CBS.”
Clarke’s showbiz career is now well-established. ABC News hired him as a “news analyst”.
I, and thousands of others, place no credibility on the networks, for good reason.
