Comedian Lewis Black Looks At Media Coverage Of Whitney Houston’s Death

So we all heard the bad puns the media said covering Whitney Houston's death.  "She can no longer have the greatest love of all" or "she can longer say she will always love you" and we rolled our eyes. Lewis Black remembers and takes them to task.

We have missed "Back In Black" on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" and it returned last night with a vengeance.

Going after Nancy Grace for assuming someone drowned Whitney when no one knew and other media people jumping to conclusions.

We know the media sensationalize everything and Whitney was no exception.  Check out Lewis Black setting them straight on it.-DocFB

This is a sad day for the book industry and for the economy.  Borders books is being forced to liquidate as they could not find a buyer for the company.  Starting tomorrow, ALL Borders in the United States will be having going out of business sales that will go through until August when all stores will be closing and close to 11,000 people losing their jobs.

Mike Edwards, CEO of Borders sent out a message to all Borders customers and consumers earlier tonight.  Wow.  Just wow.  I am sure most of you will take advantage of the book sale before they close.  I would and will. 

Print media is a dying breed as nooks and other devices take over.

What do you guys think of Borders going out of business.-Dr.FB

Facebook: 750 Million & Growing



Wonder if Justin Timberlake and his Myspace peeps along with Google+ are about to do a spit check. On the news that just under 6 million people deleted their facebook page (Although you can't really delete it) they announced they have over 750 million people with Facebook pages. 

They are like the McDonald's of the Social Networks...although if Facebook was serving burgers, I actually might eat theirs.  It really is only a matter of time where it should just say "Facebook: Billions & Billions Served" as their tagline.

Mark Zuckerberg had this to say as they did not really want to release how many members they have:

"The metric of the last five years was about user growth. The driving narrative of the next five years is not about wiring up the world, but what cool stuff (apps) can you build with this wiring in place."

"We did not report 750 million because we do not believe it is the metric."

Interesting to say the least I must say.  Who doesn't have a Facebook page?  Seriously.  We want to hear from you.-Dr.FB
