American Idol Exposé ! !

Posted by on May 2 at 14:23 PM

Don’t know if anybody else has been following the drama storm leading up to this Wednesday’s scheduled airing of ABC’s “American Idol expose,” but FOX king Rupert Murdoch has threatened an avalanche of legal action should the show make it to air, while ABC is standing its ground.

Fresh delight: This quote, taken from today’s Drudge update on the drama, which deserves some sort of prize:

“I am quite surprised and disappointed ABC is devoting an hour of its prime time programming to air tabloid trash,” a top FOX executive said from Los Angeles.

Hopefully, this now has my name in the byline; if not, this was written by me, David Schmader.
