Another Great Moment In Media

This was the actual image on my computer screen when I accessed the cable service Optimum (run by Cablevision) yesterday.  Of all the photos of Dave Roberts available, this was the one they chose. I don’t know if  it was the case of a brain dead editor, a lack of availability, or what, but one thing I do know: This was one of the most tasteless things I’ve seen on the Net in a while, and that includes Hustler.com. Appalling. (Robert Smith)

    In the age of WireImage, I think that’s just very poor shot selection. So to speak.

    Fox had an entry in the age-old “Photos For Use At Your Suspension Hearing” category today, courtesy of the AP, as the unidentified minor who jumped the wall at the Phillies game runs, unaware of the completely out-of-scale response he’s about to receive…

    That the file is named, in part, “taser doomsday” is a window into someone’s psyche…

      Out of scale? Frankly … the kid had what was coming to him. A few years back, a shirtless father and son team attached a first base coach at an MLB game and beat the crap out of the unsuspecting, aging guy; nobody can tell the age or intentions of someone who runs on the field. It’s simply the cops’ duty to get the guy out of there; the kid refused to stop running, then broke free once before he was subdued. There’s talk that the 17-year-old’s family might take the matter to court for “excessive force.” I’d rather the seeming idiot spends three months staring at concrete walls to figure out why what he did was wrong.

    Rick,

    Yep…the kid will be made into a sympathetic figure, and will become famous for being an abject idiot. Only in You Know Where.
