Stupid, Stupid NBC

posted by on October 27 at 13:52 PM

NBC is refusing to air ads for the forthcoming Dixie Chicks documentary, Shut Up and Sing. I’m going to a screening of the film next week and have high hopes, given the fact that it was directed by Barbara Kopple, best known for Harlan County, U.S.A.

That's a funny name for a documentary. I wonder if the director ever sings.

well, on my favorite 12oclock news today (NBC affiliate King5) I got to see a preview Bill O'Reily yelling at audience members.

I am not surpised they wouldn't air a trailer that appears "disparaging" to our dear leader.

Funny name: It's a direct & unattributed ripoff from Laura Ingraham. But you knew that already.

Already opened in New York. Suckers.

RJR: "Shut up and sing", It's something one of the rednecks said to/about the Dixie Chicks in the documentary.
