This week, TIME magazine's annual embarrassment to journalism, their "100" list, came out.
"Meet the most influential people in the world..."http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/0,28757,1984685,00.html
Yeah, I know, I know, Breakling News... same old tired MSM faces and Usual Suspects, with the lovely Blake Lively's tossed in for a wild-card.
Supposedly, this list is comprised of some of the most influential people around, but RT America -formerly Russia Today America- host Alyona Minkovski throws a red flag on the whole embarrassing enterprise by simply highlighting the fact that MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, self-promoting author Amy Chua and actress Blake Lively are on the list.
I like Blake, but admittedly, it's hardly anyone's Murder's Row of deep thinkers!
I wrote about Blake here on March 24th, 2009 with the title, Blake Lively: A Smile That Can Fill a TV Screen!

No, not the professor or researcher or historian whom you've never heard of who is doing some amazing and revolutionary work in an esoteric area you otherwise think little about, but whom within a year or so, will absolutely rock our world view, dumbfound us with their discoveries or create an antidote or cure for something that we think is a death sentence now, but will seem self-evident years from now.
Someone who could use some kudos to get over the hump.
U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, the DWS pal?
She's not even the most influential politician in her own state -Gov. Jan Brewer is.
And not that it has anything to do with the video, but I would absolutely pay money to watch the lovely and personable Alyona -who is really looking better than ever- absolutely pummel some of the more exasperating female reporters, experts and consultants that currently get trotted out on TV with regularity now, both verbally and physically.
She can start with the distaff crew at MSNBC, since I don't watch it at all anymore but recently heard yet another eye-rolling story about Contessa Brewer that just reaffirms my decision.
At this point, it hardly matters if it's true, Contessa's hopelessly smug and unctuous eye-rolling attitude over so many years, her refusal to believe something that conflicted with the Beltway MSM orthodoxy, and her cuteness being completely negated by her vacuousness and self-deception, means nobody I know takes her seriously.
And neither should you.
If you put your ear up to her ear, you can hear what sounds like a wind tunnel.
