I’ve never watched the Jeff Jarvis-created “Idol Critic” show, however, I decided to tune in when I saw Nashville’s (as in the town, not the style of music) Melinda Doolittle didn’t make it into the finals of American Idol. (Even though I didn’t follow the competition, I naturally think such a decision is wrong.) I’m glad I viewed it, as about half-way through, Idol Critic Liza Persky makes an observation that caused the Coke I was drinking to come out of my nose:
“The governor of Tennessee is the whitest man alive.”
I’m a fan of Phil Bredesen, but I think Liza’s “blink” judgement is solid.
