Brick TeeVee is a preview of the Sunday Talking Head Shows beamed across America by Corporate Media, plus some good progressive radio and who will be on which show. If you have other Sunday Talkie shows' guest lists we don't have, please share below. Post your comments while you watch! It's fun, it's healthy and doggonit at least we'll know others can also see through the media manipulation that blankets our public airwaves. DEBUNK HERE!
So, with no further ado, I present to you This Week's Brick TeeVee entry!

After a one-week hiatus we're back with all the Presidential Race Olympics coverage you can stand! Haha! The brouhaha over John Edwards tryst seems to dominate the cable news but C&L's John Amato opines in David Gregory: Broader implications for the party, "And they have the nerve to talk about betrayal of Edwards to the media and his wife — in that order. Why aren’t they more outraged about the betrayal of the White House to get us into a war?" And didja see GWB's mental gymnastics calling out the Chinese for THEIR extreme political policies? Good one! Pot meet Kettle, eh? While Obama takes a vacation, the air fills up with ever more surrogates from both sides, starting with BILL RICHARDSON up against BOBBY JINDAL. Face the Bob has TIM KAINE and KARL "Turd Blossom" ROVE (always a good BRICK target). U-Boat Captain Blitzer pits ED RENDELL against CHARLIE CRIST. The White House Limo gets a rare start for HANK PAULSON on Meet the Tom LIVE from Beijing and HUD Sec. STEVE PRESTON on Wolfie. Also on Late Edition it's Oil Guy Billionairre T. BOON PICKENS now spinning Wind Power and other renewable energy sources. DICK DURBIN gets the nod to appear on Fake News Sunday. To get away from the spin tune in Ring of Fire with substitute host SAM SEDER and guests SCOTT HORTON and THOMAS FRANK. Last week's yard sale took all the wind out of the Brick TeeVee crew for a lousy $40 but we have less junk! Our good deed was delivering a kitchen table and chairs to the inner city for a nice old lady and her caring granddaughter, so that made the whole day worth it. Have a great Sunday!
