BLOG: Baseball Crank Media Alert

I realize that most of this site's readers will be watching the Met game tonight, but if you happen to not be watching or want to record/Tivo it, I am scheduled (assuming the pre-taped segment isn't cut) to be on "The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch" at 10pm tonight on CNBC (probably the third or fourth segment) discussing Washington scandals, with special emphasis on my Weekly Standard article on the subject.

I can't promise scintillating television, but I think I got through it with a minimum of hemming and hawing. Bear in mind that (1) I had no idea what the questions would be and (2) I only found out around 10am today that I would be on TV.

UPDATE: So, I'm on national TV tonight and there's a Mets playoff game on ... and my TV dies. After 11 years of flawless service. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

SECOND UPDATE: Well, they cut me. We did get the TV fixed, but to no avail. Sorry to those of you who tuned in.

Great Crank. Sorry the TV died, now go and get an HD. And I'll watch., What do you think remotes are for.

I'm watching. Are they going to identify you as Crank?

It's looking like the Crank may have been left on the cutting-room floor. But I'm currently trying to fathom the description of how Strom Thurmond "fathered a sixteen year-old girl when he was 22"

Nonetheless, Congrats on this Crank.

I'm sure there'll be more opportunities to come. Since I've been a regular here (about a year), the exposure seems to be getting more & more.

If only you hadn't chosen that wacky liberal guy to guest blog when you vacationed, there's no telling how many TV shows you'd have been on by now. ;-)
