Could This End the Media's Love Affair with Psy?
Last Friday evening CBS announced that Psy, the anti-American Korean one-hit wonder ("Gangham Style"), would be their guest at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Even though Psy apologized for a song where he said that American troops and families should be killed "slowly and painfully" it's dumb that CBS would even open itself up to criticism. Oh, wait, they aren't receiving any criticism beyond tweets from conservatives like me who still pay attention to celebrities. At the very least they should be criticized for bringing a has-been. You're supposed to bring the celebrities who are hot right now -- like the cast of "Duck Dynasty" -- not the guy who is now doing commercials for pistachios. Did CBS invite Psy because Tan Mom wasn't available?
After Psy's appearance at the WHCD, he may lose his popularity with the media though. In the eyes of liberals, he's committed a worse offense than wishing Americans would die. HE SMOKES. From Fishbowl DC:
Everyone knows handlers can be psychotic. They prevent, they block. They stumble all over themselves trying to barricade the star. In effect, they over handle. “He did the red carpet, he’s not doing any more interviews,” one of the handlers told us regarding Psy, of South Korean rapper, dancer Gangnam Style fame, who showed up to a CBS, The Atlantic and National Journal pre-party at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last night.
Meanwhile, he’s standing there smoking a cigarette — not crack, mind you — but a simple, legal cigarette. The handlers insisted, “Psy doesn’t want his picture taken while smoking a cigarette.” To that end, they even had a tall, broad guy in a suit with a big back purposefully ruining attempted photographs.
Psy's handlers had the good sense to try to keep the media from documenting this awful behavior. If the media (and the Obamas) can forgive this:
Kill those f--king Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives
Kill those f--king Yankees who ordered them to torture
Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers
Kill them all slowly and painfully
Maybe they'll also forgive his smoking.
(Note: I tagged this post as "Media Bias." I refuse to tag anything with Psy as "Entertainment.")
