    Actually, a great move on Sirius' part. Not that I need anymore Spitz...but I don't think this was a bad marketing move on their part. And the timing works (goin' until Monday).

    How much can this be talked about? Should his wife stand by him or leave him? That's between the two of them, not for us to determine. Blah blah blah.

    CK

    I won't be listening to this. But as a producer of content (Sirius), one needs to tap opportunities--and, believe it or not, many listeners like scandal.

    I am approaching this comment--and the one prior--from a business standpoint of Sirius leveraging content opps. As I've said over at my blog, I'd like him, all his arrogance (and all the talk) to "just go away".

    PS: And to answer your question - no, his wife should not stand by him. Unless he pays her by the hour to withstand him.

    PPS: The BS widget is back on your blog.

    CK, I don't disagree that it's a decent marketing move by Sirius to cash in on the public's interest in the scandal. I do think it's a sad commentary on the public's need to know every sordid detail. It reminds me of the OJ Simpson case. It's like a real-life soap opera. It's one I don't need to tune in to. The man screwed up and did wrong, he got caught, he's gone. End of story, for me at least.

    CK

    Oh, completely agree...I just want him to go away. I'm wondering though, does the media fuel it as much as we think--or does the public actually want it and the media is merely serving their customers?

    See, tabloid journalism is on the rise, it's astounding really how much the public consumes this. And for a while I was blaming the media....but if there were no audience...then the media wouldn't dish it up in record doses. Sad, really.


    David Reich

    Yes, it's true that the media respond to what sells -- and gossip and scandal does sell. It's just a sad commentary on people, but it's human nature, I suppose. Human nature or not, though, I don't like it and I refuse to participate in the gossip mills.
