One wonder why a magazine would create a story it knew to be inaccurate. The Hollywood Reporter has just released its list of the 35 most powerful people in the media. This sent me to Wikipedia to identify many on the list who hold such sway over my personal life and the lives of all other Americans. Of course Roger Ailes is powerful and his name is not a household word as is the case with the NYT's executive editor, Jill Abramson. Mika Brezezinski and Joe Scarborough hobnob with powerful people ergo they must be powerful and so the list goes on with Barbara Walters and without Ann Curry. The list is laughable when one considers the absence of Fox News's Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren who have better ratings than anyone on MSNBC. Howard Stern made the list but- now remember we are talking about powerful individuals-Rush Limbaugh did not.
Maybe THR could collaborate with the people who select for the Baseball Hall of Fame and the and the National Honor Society.
