Ryan – David Letterman v. Palin Family

letterman-palin

letterman-palin

when i heard that the Palin family had released a statement attacking David Letterman for a joke he made on his show, i was a little frustrated. Late night talk shows are about comedy and jokes that you can’t say on the 5 o’clock news. I feel like the Palin family was just angry that they were the butt of another joke and used their “popularity” to share their anger. This is a prime example of how people are over sensitive to things in America. People can’t take a joke nowadays. Was it a joke in poor taste? Ahh yeah, but it’s late night T.V. its not like Letterman was making fliers with that joke on in and handing it out to kinds in grammar school. Aren’t we a little too sensitive?

MODERATOR NOTE:  Did you see the show or see all the hype on blogs, web news sites and YouTube? Great post, thank you.

Katie – On June 12, 2009, “TV Evolves in the US”

A new era in broadcast television history.
A new era in broadcast television history.

REMINDER: Your Analog TV’s Will Implode At Midnight
The era of analog broadcast television in the United States will end as the nation’s full power* television stations complete their transition to an all-digital system. While this change will mark the end of the traditional analog method of broadcasting over-the-air television, it won’t signal the end of free broadcast television, and your favorite broadcast programs and local television stations will still be available.

Don’t forget your old school analog TV’s will cease receiving over-the-air TV signals come tomorrow unless you score a digital converter box or you receive your television by cable, satellite or built-in HDTV tuner. Congress extended the DTV Transition date from Feburary 17th, 2009 (best day ever might I add) to June 12, 2009 due to the economy and lack of DTV coupons.

It’s your geeky duty to call grandma and inform her that her precious block of Baking With Julia and The Best Of The Joy Of Painting will no longer be filling her noontime cat nap unless she steps up to all digital TV.
