Greg Mitchell on media, politics, film, music, TV, comedy and more. "Not here, not here the darkness, in this twittering world." -- T.S. Eliot
NPR's "On the Media", which I hear on Sunday mornings on WEVO in Concord, NH (I live north of Boston) ran a repeat of a segment originally broadcast ten years ago in 2003. Something I didn't know: advertising executives at the networks wanted to start running commercials again, but the news departments at CBS, NBC and ABC squelched the idea. Somehow, I think that if the Fox "News" Channel had existed, they would have gladly run advertising!
