Look, Ma, I’m on TV

: La Shawn Barber was on MSNBC’s Connected last night and she blogs about it. As MSNBC and others put more bloggers on TV, more just-plain-people get the attention of the camera. And it’s nice to see that the world isn’t entirely jaded about media: La Shawn’s excited about being on TV.

    LaShawn Barber? What the hell is wrong with MSNBC, putting a completely non-credible wingnut on the air whose sole “accomplishment” is being a black female who is philosophically closer to the KKK than the NAACP?

    Is ‘Idiot’ a comment or your signature?

  • A-Reader

    It’s a comment. Wasn’t it obvious based upon the bizarre ranting listed above?
    I’ll be clearer next time.
    I’m so misunderstood.

    christ, if you are gonna accuse me of racism, at least try to have a clue about it. I wasn’t accusing Barber of being “uppity” (or, as someone unlike yourself would put it, “acting like a proud Black woman”); in fact, quite the opposite.
    what are the qualification of ana marie cox, aka. wonkette? being blonde?
    I think “being blonde” covers most of her qualifications quite well, actually…. (and I don’t even know if she’s blonde or not. Its just that I don’t consider being a snarky gossip much qualification for anything….if it were, I’d have a PhD! :) )

    dries… we fact check your ass… ana marie’s a redhead!

    thanks jeff. i knew i was many shades off on l’oreal scale of colors. wonkette’s scribblings prove that “blonde” is a state of mind she’s deeply in. same goes for maureen dowd.

    Having a blog (and paying for people to visit it) is not the same? Look Ma! I’m posted in the blogosphere! TV “shows” want people who are fired-up about being there–they need talking heads, not dead heads.
