Libya or Shoplifting?

This is off topic.On March 28, Lawrence Kudlow of CNBC had to have been embarrassed.  President Obama has  just delivered an important speech about U.S. involvement in the Libyan crisis. Kudlow then conducted a  discussion with top commentators. Then, with apparent embarrassment, he told the audience that he had to end  the discussion so that CNBC could show a documentary on shoplifting—a somewhat  revamped version of a previous 60 Minutes episode.

 I remember when cable held the promise of a “wired nation” and national town meetings.  Life is full of disappointments.
