That’s the topic of this week’s Philly Post column.
By the way, I made an error, which I caught right before submission, and fixed. But if I hadn’t fixed it, it might have led to the following correction:
An earlier version of this column stated that radio host Mark Levin, after Michelle Obama’s Oscar appearance Sunday, compared the First Lady to Eva Peron. In fact, Levin’s Michelle-as-Eva quote was from several months before the Oscars, and was in reference to the First Lady’s proposed school lunch standards.
In this week’s Philly Post column, I look at the Oscar Pistorious case and why the media just doesn’t understand much about steroids.
Three new columns/essays this week:
– At Philly Post, I wrote about the Eagles, their decision to raise ticket prices and why unpopular as it is, people will pay the new prices. Come of the column and stay for the new picture.
– And at EntertainmentTell, I look at the arrival of Dish’s Hopper with Sling, and at a plot line shared by Girls and The Mindy Project.
This week’s Philly Post column is about something I’m very happy I was able to highlight- the campaign by a group of Phillies fans on Twitter to honor their late friend and raise some money for his funeral expenses. Please check it out if you haven’t already.
I pay tribute to last weekend’s Toronto Star column, and other viral sensations of terrible writing, in this week’s Philly Post column.
Some new writings published this week:
On Philly Post, I discussed why Jim Thome might not make the Hall of Fame.
At EntertainmentTell, I review “Broken City,” and also broke down some past pop culture moments that were echoed in the Manti Te’o story.
I also appeared this morning to discuss the Oscars and other movie stuff on the Morning Magazine show on WCHE in West Chester. Podcast of that will be posted at some point I am told.
On Philadelphia magazine’s Philly Post, I look at Hillary Clinton’s health scare and the silly doctors who diagnose her from afar. Thanks to my sister-in-law Hannah, an infectious disease specialist and authority on blood clots, for her help on this one.
And on EntertainmentTell, it’s my January Tell magazine column, in which I eagerly await the arrival of the universal cloud DVR.
I take a look at weight, fat-shaming, with a more-personal-than-usual perspective, in this week’s Philly Post column.
I look at the Flying Spaghetti Monster people’s fight in Chester County- and the fallacy of the “War on Christmas”- in this week’s Philly Post column.
