Hard to Watch
Last night during a discussion about Melanie Blunt's ridiculous inauguration outfit on Donnybrook, the show's fossilized, slow talking provocateur Martin Duggan asked Wendy Wiese, "Who is Deb Peterson?" He was serious. Uh, Martin, if you're a media critic, shouldn't you keep up with, you know, the media?
Also, in a majority black city, why aren't there any black people on Donnybrook? Or young(er) people? Or more than one woman?

Key difference between Bjork and "Bunny" Blunt dresses: context.
Bjork has made her name for embracing/ creating the avant-garde. And she was at an awards ceremony.
Blunt was supposed to be doing the stately, first-lady thing. Honestly when I first glanced at the photo I assumed it was 10-year-old child next to him.
Btw, there was an interesting profile about Martin Duggan in the St. Louis Journalism Review a few months back.

Rumor has it that Martin Duggan soon will be replaced with a more vital and exciting individual who can bring a more contemporary perspective to the Donnybrook program.
Specifically, KETC has plans to raid the exhibits at the History Museum, reanimate the corpse of some prehistoric man, put a suit on him, and send him out as Duggan's replacement - the theory being, of course, that the zombiefied remains of a man who died thousands of years ago could surely do no worse, and indeed, might well be more interesting and informed than Duggan.

Martin forgot more than Charlie will ever know, and still is a sharp octagenerian who maintains control over a handfull of sharp-witted journalists who's combined life experience almost equals his. Don't forget that Martin INVENTED KETC's Donnybrook.
