Political Theater

George W. Bush today denounced a House vote to limit the Iraq War as an act of political theater.

Pals Now?

Strange partners:

News Corp. and NBC have announced a deal to create a new video distribution site, dubbed the “YouTube killer” by many. The companies have also formed partnerships with a number of big players, including Yahoo!, Microsoft, and Time Warner/AOL to supply content and provide distribution channels. The service, which currently does not have a name, will launch this summer with a number of TV shows and movie content.

News Corp. is the parent company of Fox News. NBC is one of the parents of MSNBC.

It will be interesting to see how often MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann will feature Bill O’Reilly or other Fox News hacks as “Worst Person in the World” now that their employers are partners. Will O’Reilly still threaten to send Fox Security after callers who mention Olbermann’s name?
