Geez, Letterman. I’ve always despised your pompous ass, but now I’m really pissed.
I recorded The Good Wife on Sunday, but I didn’t get to watch it on Sunday, or during the day on Monday.
Then, on MONDAY in the early evening (only ONE FUCKING DAY later), CBS ran ads for the Letterman show, while “Mom” was airing. The promo showed who their guest was going to be that night (a character from The Good Wife) and in one brief moment, Letterman gave away the BIGGEST SPOILER EVER!!
I was given NO WARNING…if you watch this short little promo for the David Letterman show, it will RUIN your surprise, at the BIGGEST EVENT THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED on The Good Wife!
Thanks, CBS. Thanks, Letterman.
I was completely unable to react as I would have, if I hadn’t known what to expect.
Way to go.
P.S. If you unfollow me because I can’t stomach David Letterman, oh well. I can give you a long list of other famous people I despise, too.
[Excerpt from the then head of the NY Times, John Swinden’s toast to “an independent press” at a 1953 gathering of the National Press Club.]
“There is no such thing [at this date of the world’s history in America], as an independent press.
You know it, and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write his honest opinion, and if you did, you know beforehand it would never appear in print.
I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things. and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allow my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before 24 hours, my occupation would be gone.
The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it, and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?
We are the tools and the vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks. They pull the strings, and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”
