Timing is Everything

The biggest story in town today, aside from Joe Torre slipping into some Dodger Blue, is the writers strike. What shows will be cancelled. What local businesses will be affected. Who will be picketing where.

But then, there’s this…

NBC is running promos for their Green is Universal week. The peacock logo is green. Shows dealing with environmental consciousness. Programming that was clearly written, produced, and in the can months ago.

Yet, somehow, Green Is Universal begins airing the same week of the writers strike?

Is the timing of this an attempt to distract viewers from all the attention to the strike? Was the promotion even designed with the potential of a strike in mind? Or is the network that brought you D*ck in a Box just concerned about the environment?

Time will tell.

    Amen sister.

    I’m so done with the whole “green” movement. I’m done with causes that will give greenie points to a coffee store for using recycled cups and fair market coffee while still paying workers minimum wage. I’m done with these self righteous electric car, tofu eating, phonies, but won’t step foot on the bus, won’t support livable wages and wants everything as cheap as inhumanly possible.

    I’m so getting ready to buy a 1957 Cadillac convertible, start smoking nonfiltered camels and eating steak and potatoes.

    What’s killing the planet is consumerism, but you can’t sell that so we just electrify and tofu and organicize everything to lull people into the false security that they have actually done something.

    It’s like that person who refuses to exercise, but tries every diet and wonders why the don’t lose weight.

    That’s pretty much the green movement.

  2. Don’t forget all the dickwads flying around in their personal private jets to tell me I have to use compact fluorescent light bulbs (which by the way are so toxic when they break they’re ILLEGAL in landfills).

    All this short sighted Good Guy Badge polishing feelgoodery makes me want to puke.

  3. Take a deep breath, Jason. This TV thing has been in the planning stages for a while now. It takes more than a few days to get permission and make arrangements to get people onto the Antarctic.
