Media-Whore D'Oeuvre




"Following the ABC news division cutbacks, David Westin is taking one last journey before he departs as news president at year's end -- with Diane Sawyer on her three-day trip to China to report on the country's economic growth, returning Wednesday. An ABC rep said he's 'going to China, just like he has gone on dozens of other foreign trips. This is what news presidents do, they go on reporting trips to ensure their organizations continue to have access to countries of interest to the American people. The cutbacks happened last March.'"

"Talk about 'Don't be evil.' Google has helped nab a trio of drug dealers in East Williamsburg using its ubiquitous Street View technology. According to the Post, three of seven dealers arrested yesterday in an NYPD sting operation were caught in the act by Google's funny little camera car. They were photographed dealing in two locations, and the pictures, in some of which the men appear to be throwing up gang signs at the Google car, were used in the dealers' indictments. Don't believe us? See it for yourself. Almost as funny, some undercover cops dressed as hipsters to help catch the seven dealers in the act, as this was apparently a big part of their regular clientele." (Observer)



"Howard (Stern) said a thought came to his mind when he was talking to this gentleman. It turns out this guy is Grammy Award winner BeBe Winans. Howard said he has a bed in the green room for them. He's won 5 Grammy's. He said his sister has won 6. He said his family has won 30 overall. BeBe said that he produced a Whitney Houston song on the Bodyguard soundtrack. Howard said he knows BeBe as a human being from going to the gym with him ... Howard said he can imagine Robin and BeBe going out together ... Howard said that BeBe is divorced and he's taking care of his kids. He has a 15 year old girl and a son too. Howard said Robin isn't looking for more kids but she'd be taking care of his kids. Robin told him to stop it. She said that he has to stop talking for her. Howard said Robin has the 15 Foundation and BeBe has a 15 year old so that's something right there. BeBe asked Howard if he was even going to mention his show. Howard said he was just there for this date. Howard said BeBe has a show on SIRIUS and he helped get him the job. He said he told Scott Greenstein about BeBe and now he's got his own show there. Howard asked BeBe about the new CD he has out with his sister CeCe. He said she's a piece of ass. BeBe said he can't say that. Howard asked BeBe if he can get laid being the singer that he is. BeBe said he does not act like this at the gym. He said that he won't answer that question. Howard asked if his parents named their kids after the alphabet. BeBe said his name is actually Benjamin and that BeBe was his nickname. He said that CeCe's name is Priscilla." (Marksfriggin)
