‘JOURNALISTS’ IN DISGRACE…(& in contention for Disgraced Celebrity of Fall, 2010)
What would Walter Cronkite think? From hothead Tweet-happy Glenn Beck to hot-fingered Cook’s Source, many so-called ‘journalists’ have found themselves in hot water this fall.
Thanks to blog reader Larzini for alerting us to the Cooks Source scandal involving the allegedly uncredited reprinting of author’s recipes. Cooks may have stolen from the wrong cookie jar this time.
High Fashion hit the Low Road as MARIE CLAIRE’s online author Maura Kelly stirred backlash with over 28,000 emails denouncing her mean-spirited attack on TV’s cuddly couple ‘Mike and Molly.’ Kelly may now regret likening the likable TV stars to heroin addicts.
Speaking of Mean-Spirited: CBS has abruptly fired its Early Show anchors. But Glenn Beck takes the Disgraced ‘Journalist’ prize with his remarks about billionaire World War II survivor George Soros. Beck described Soros as a “Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps.” On a lighter note, Beck repeatedly ‘joked’ in Tweets about his wife wanting to kill him and leave his ‘remains’ in Texas.
What breaches of journalistic ethics and taste have lately made your blood boil? As we consider the sources, let’s also consider Disgraced Celebrity of Fall, 2010…Leave your votes for that ‘honor’ in any COMMENTS…
