Sarah Palin: 'I Need NOW's Defense Like a Fish Needs a Bicycle' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 24th 2011 4:00PM
Last week, Bill Maher insulted Sarah Palin by likening her to a vulgar word for a part of the female anatomy. The National Organization of Women (NOW) issued a statement condemning Maher's language, however some believe the statement was a bit half-hearted.

Palin was 'On the Record With Greta Van Susteren' (weekdays, 10 PM ET on Fox News) where she addressed Maher's slur and NOW's reaction.

"Others want to bring more light to it and demand that Bill Maher apologize or that NOW defend me for something that was said about me -- by the way, I need NOW's defense like a fish needs a bicycle," Palin said.

Mmmmm...PBS coffee

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 9th 2006 10:10AM

PBS BlendPBS is getting into the coffee game by joining with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and creating the PBS Blend. The coffee will be organic, and will be "offered in whole bean, 10 oz. packages, and single serve K-cups for use in Keurig Single-Cup brewers."

But the PBS ombudsman column above raises an interesting question: how can PBS get into the for-profit business of selling coffee and other commercial endeavors and still get taxpayer support? Whatever side you happen to fall on, the column probably answers any questions you might have and is well worth reading.

I wonder if they'll do it for certain shows. Maybe a Sesame Street Hazelnut or a Bill Moyers Vanilla Bean. Though I don't really want to know what a McLaughlin Group-flavored coffee would taste like.

PBS series on iTunes

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 11th 2006 12:05PM

PBSPBS has made some of its programming available on iTunes, but instead of paying for the episodes, you simply call a number and pledge money to PBS, download the episode, and then receive a coffee mug or tote bag in the mail. No, I'm kidding, the episodes are the usual $1.99 downloads. The series include Nova (which has had a free vodcast on iTunes already), Scientific American Frontiers, Antiques Roadshow and Now. PBS is also offering a few animated children's programs in its iTunes store, including Arthur, Cyberchase and Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman. The Nova podcast will be a little more pricey at $7.99 per show, and I notice the short-form Nova vodcast hasn't had a new episode since last month, so maybe they're ditching that as well. I hope that isn't the case, since it was a great vodcast, even if it did only offer tiny snippets.

PBS shows for sale on Google

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 27th 2006 12:40PM
pbs logoYou asked for it, you got it. PBS says it has responded to viewer requests to make its programming available online by going with Google. You can buy Antique Roadshow, Nova, Arthur, Fetch, Cyberchase, and NOW on Google video. Nova costs $7.99 to download but the other shows are the industry standard $1.99.

I'd definitely be interested in downloading episodes of Frontline and America's Test Kitchen.
