Oh Yes Berlusconi Don't even mention him ;0))

by Darius Kadivar on

Chirac called him : "Le Marchand de Soup Italien" in a racial rant alas but so true.

Berlusconi wanted to launch LA CINQ a French version of his Italian TV and it was a flop after a year of airing.


Just imagine if Chirac had called him in other terms ...

Nose Picker:


Or  Rabbit :



So I can imagine that prior to Berlusconi's crazy management Italian TV ( very much as Italy itself) must have been an entirely different thing !


DK jaan, I am consoled :o)

I hear you on globalization of bad trends but still.  My point of reference actually is the Italian media (prior to the little idiot, Berlusconni/ the mini-me to GW) since I'm most familiar with but yeah I completely agree with you on the British channels, they Are most exemplary.

Monda Jaan if it's a consolation ... ;0)

we also have our share of Junk too ;0) 

Not everything is great here either particularly on TF1 which is one of the oldest Private Channels and they feed us with Reality TV and lots of stupid programs and they get the highest ratings in terms of viewers.

But overall I think we are luckier in terms of quality talk shows.

I do like Jon Stewart though compared to many other talk show hosts though including French ones. But the irony is that while he is supposed to be at odds with Corporate medias he is in the end of the day consciously or unconsciently a mere product of that Corporation he denounces ...

It's just that I can't help notice that American TV Formats stereotype profiles a great deal. And with CNN gone Global since this stereotype has multipied to such extremes.

Take any CNN presentator regardless of their racial background Indian, Japanese, Iranian, French they all speak, dress and behave the same. It's as if you cloned the same person from one mold then genetically mutated them into another physical appearance.

At least Thank God CNN is Not FOX News ...LOL

Mind you it's becoming the same on our global channels like France 24 too. At times It's really frightening to see this nearly Orwellian take over of world medias in an effort to uniformize the look and content.

It's less the case on British TV which I prefer on many grounds to even French TV particularly when it comes to documentaries.

But I'm afraid with globalization also comes alot of superficiality  ...



Dear DK,

by Monda on

Yes! Unfortunately the Corporate American media is That Desperate and narcissistic, no doubts there! Jon Stewart Show is one watchable, bebin maa chi mikeshim injaa!  Every time I'm in Europe, I saturate myself in your wonderful tv and radio, from commercials to news, let alone the variete shows.

Why are You Americans So Politically Correct? ;0)

by Darius Kadivar on

Same goes for your IRANICAN Guests ...

Did you hear the number of Beeps each time Stewart uses a cus' word ?

It's His Show for God's Sake and he knows perfectly what he is doing so why "BEEP' Him his OWN Words ? On a Private Channel too ... Jesus ! What would it be on a State Owned American Channel then ? ...

You don't see such Hypocrisy on French TV ( Be it a Public or Private owned channel) where anyone can say "Merde", "Putain", "ta geule", or "Mon Cul" without being accused of "Profanity" ...



No wonder Your Stars come to Europe to escape from Your Insular Mindsets:

Alexander Cast on Ardisson:


Milla Jovovich get's angry on Ardisson's Show :


And I am not even refering to this HISTORIC Incident :

Whitney Houston & Serge Gainsbourg.wmv :


Oh and Read this as "No Drugs Involved" in her Sainthood's recent Paris predicaments ... LOL

Whitney Houston Hospitalized in Paris with Nose and Throat Problems


Jooneh Amat:

Whitney Houston Denies Hospitalization was Drug-Related

Also unless you are good looking in that Narcisistic way that American TV and Cinema are so fond of ... You ain't "Cool" enough to be on Jon Stewart or Jay Leno I guess ...

I don't understand the hypocrisy on American TV on grounds of so called "Profanity" when they go and make groundbreaking series full of it from the L Word to Baywatch for teenagers who can view them and look up to the likes of Sarah Shahi and Pamela Anderson as Role Models and where everything in these films/series suggests the viewer to go and masturbate or get a blow job but just don't mention the "word" ...

I prefer watching Terry Jones for my education :


And Personally I'm less tolerant when it comes to ignorance ...

CLUELESS JON STEWART: "Ebrahim Yazdi Such a Lovely Man"
