The always must-read TV Newser reports on the upcoming lineup for the Radio & TV News Directors Association convention upcoming in Las Vegas. And, of course, it tilts left, as signified by the prominent roles for ABC's Sam Donaldson and MSNBC's Dan Abrams. But TVN raises a slight editorial eyebrow at the choice of Tim Robbins to be the keynote speaker on Monday morning.
Good for TVN for catching this, but please allow The Cable Gamer to go further: WHAT IN THE WORLD WAS THE RTNDA THINKING???
Yes, that Tim Robbins, the Tim Robbins, who epitomizes trendy lefty Hollywood. The Cable Gamer is always startled when liberal Main Stream Media types descend into obtuse self-parody--perpetually under fire for being too far to the left, they then bring in a certified lefty to speak to them. Go figure: here, here, here, and here.
