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!

With the election now in the rear view mirror now comes the business of governing. Team Obama is busy putting together their cabinet so they can "hit the ground running" (after all the Inauguration parties, of course). Top on the rumor-mill list is Primary opponent Hillary Clinton for Secretary of State. Don't forget to sign this petition: No Foxes in the Henhouse! to oppose LARRY "Africa Is 'Under-Polluted'" SUMMERS for Treasury Secretary. Of course, as the economy continues to tank and more job losses are announced, the focus this week is on the economy, featuring NOBEL PRIZE ECONOMIST PAUL KRUGMAN on This George and his alter ego TOM "World is Flat" FRIEDMAN on Meet the Tom, who also has CARL LEVIN vs. SEN. RICHARD SHELBY to discuss whether Detroit Iron needs government cash or not to build more SUVs and monster trucks. Then BARNEY FRANK faces off against RICHARD SHELBY on Face the Bob. Tune in 60 Minutes for a post-election interview with Mr. & Mrs. Obama. THROW BRICKS at ARNOLD "Girlie Man" SCHWARZENEGGER on This George, NEWT "Contract ON America" GINGRICH on Face the Bob and T. BOONE PICKENS on Meet the Tom. (Did you know Pickens wants to sell you water at a profit to him? See Public Citizen T. Boone Pickens in Texas and WatchYourAssests T is for ‘Taking’: Did Texas Sell T. Boone Pickens Powers of Eminent Domain?). The Brick TeeVee crew is tired of raking leaves already and we've begun stocking up on cases of canned goods, just in case!
