Tucker Carlson

You know you've arrived when people start complaining that you're too mean. With the publication last week of my column "The Judy Miller Media Hug-Fest," I received the customary Female Opinion Writer's Baptism by Fire. Tucker Carlson, host of MSNBC's "The Situation," accused me of being "catty." For the record, I am not mean. I devote my free hours to cuddling small furry animals, and I only rarely eat them for dinner. And catty? Please! I did not say one word about Carlson's bow tie.

HAVING gone out of fashion with the Bartlett presidency on "The West Wing," the issues drama is back, with less policy talk and more family therapy, on ABC's "Brothers & Sisters." Frankly I'm shocked (but gladdened) that this series made it through season one, after getting off to such an iffy start. Calista Flockhart as Ann Coulter? And then you want to bring Sally Field onstage as her type-A, bleeding-heart mother?

Do Americans really need a trio of 24-7 cable news networks? With more people getting their headline fix from websites and blogs these days, and fewer getting it from TV as well as other "old media," a No. 3 news network behind Fox News and CNN looks increasingly like overkill, or maybe road kill. Especially when that network is MSNBC, which in a decade of operation has become electronic journalism's version of the Chicago Cubs.

Invitations have gone out for what promises to be a must- attend event for much of California's Democratic elite, particularly those in the entertainment industry: a Sept. 8 fundraiser for Barack Obama at Oprah Winfrey's Santa Barbara-area home. In the best tradition of Hollywood, the e-mail touting the afternoon gathering doesn't mince words, promoting it as no less than "the most exciting Barack Obama event of the year anywhere."

In terms of cultural relevance and advancements in entertainment, "Dancing With the Stars" is sort of like the reality TV show for people who find "American Idol" too edgy. It's a throwback kind of show, back to the days when sequins, glamour and network stars performed in circuses but managed to keep their clothes on. And as of Monday night, it was back for a fourth season on ABC. Aside from its corniness and lack of depth, "Dancing" is an utterly charming show. Live music! Flashy costumes!

The oversized U.S. Postal Service envelope was addressed simply to "NBC," and might have been overlooked in the jumble of mail flooding into the television network's Rockefeller Center headquarters Wednesday if a sharp-eyed mail carrier hadn't noticed the return address: "Blacksburg, Va." The sender: "Ishmael." Those clues were enough to alarm the Postal Service employee, who flagged the mailroom when he dropped it off about 11 a.m.

Kenneth Y. Tomlinson, the beleaguered chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, fielded sharp questioning Monday from a bipartisan Senate panel that quizzed him about his decision to secretly monitor public television and radio programs, and about other controversial moves that have led to calls for his resignation. Tomlinson's actions dominated much of a Senate subcommittee hearing about federal funding for public broadcasting. Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.

LAST WEEK, stock market analysts parsed the latest sales reports from the nation's biggest drug companies in search of why profits in the normally high-performing industry have plummeted. Good luck finding anything new. Pharma chief executives offer up only the usual culprits: generic competition, overzealous regulators, trial lawyers, bad public relations and the high cost of discovering new drugs.

The best thing about television is The Times' television critics. Howard Rosenberg, in his column "If We Can't Get Just Facts, Honesty Will Do" (Jan. 22), offered a rare challenge to the revered History Channel. In taking to task the producers of the "History vs. Hollywood" series, Rosenberg essentially exposes television's inherent superficiality, constrained as it is by its little pictures. Brian Lowry, in his look at sports and television ("TV Isn't Everything; It's the Only Thing," Jan. 24)

"It's the secular coasts versus the religious heartland," CNN's Tucker Carlson says of this year's election results. That sums up the conventional wisdom that right-wing Republicans would prefer that you believe and that too many of the rest of us do believe. The effete liberal coasts against the Real America. Situational morality against real morality. Relativism against Standards. Metrosexuals against the God-fearing. Wrong.
