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!

Only TWO MORE DAYS until the end of the Bu$h Administration. (Can you believe we made it this far?) And with all the hoopla surrounding the
Coronation Inauguration you would expect lots of Dems on the Sunday Talkies this week. And you would be right! The lone GOPhers this week, DANA "too much cappuccino" PERINO & ED GILLESPIE, seek safe harbor on CNN's new four-hour Sunday show "State of the Union with John King", which replaces U-Boat Captain Wolf Blitzer's "Late Edition". State of the King gets first dibs on the Prezident-Elect OBAMA with his side-kick DAVID AXELROD, who then takes the Prezident-Elect Limo Ride to meet with This George. Another casualty of the Sunday Gab-Fests will be FACE THE BOB SCHEIFER, who CBS announced a year ago would "plan to step down from the Sunday morning political talk show with the inauguration of a new president". Who will replace Bob is anybody's guess! What's your's? Face the Bob gets LARRY "Africa is Under-polluted" SUMMERS and ERIC MICHAEL DYSON. Meet the David lands RAHM EMANUEL back from his "family vacation in Africa" (say, isn't Israel in Africa?) and asks him if he's sold his US Rep seat yet and if he likes ROLAND BURRIS. (We at Brick TeeVee like Tom Geoghegan in IL-5! And we're not paid to say that!) Then NANCY "Impeachment is off the table" PELOSI travels to the Dark Side on FAUX NEWS. Listen for SAM SEDER on with Bobby and Pap on RING OF FIRE RADIO along with MELISSA ROSSI talking about her new book “What Every American Should Know About the Middle East” on the Sunday night rebroadcast. The Brick TeeVee Crew is surely as happy as the next American to see the BCF leave the scene but we thought FOR SURE Ralph Nader was gonna win. So we're "keeping our powder dry" as "they" say to see what the new administration will bring, but all this talk of taking on "entitlements", extending Gitmo detentions, hedging on Iraq withdrawal, "surging" in Afghanistan and threatening VETO on another unaccountable $350 BILLION to the same wize guys who got us into this mess with some of these same wize guys now in his administration, well, you get the idea. Tune in next week!
