    Seth Meyers has always been my favorite. I am a huge SNL fan, and I’ve seen his comedic skills grow since being a co-host on SNL’s weekend update up until hosting it on his own. He is the head writer of SNL now and he is coming back to host the ESPY Awards for a second time. I’m so happy for him (his agent is the bomb-ey)…anyways here are his remarks at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner:

    The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is one of my favorite political media events of the year. Seth Meyers was the headlining speaker, but the President (once again) had the best jokes.

    The president’s WHCD video has already gone viral. In less than 24 hours it has more than 1 million online video views on YouTube.
    If you missed it last night or just need to watch it again…

    From the Oscars Publicity Department

    The ABC Television Network’s contract to carry the annual Academy Awards presentations has been extended for six more years, though 2020, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ President Tom Sherak and Anne Sweeney, President of the Disney/ABC Television Group, announced today.

    “This contract ensures that the Oscar show will be an ABC tradition for 45 consecutive years,” said Sherak. “ABC is absolutely the very best place for the Academy Awards, a television event that is beloved and watched by millions of movie lovers all over the world.”

    “ABC has been home to the Oscars for many years, having aired a total of 46 of the annual telecasts, so we’re thrilled to announce that this tradition will continue,” said Sweeney. “During that time, we’ve enjoyed a tremendous partnership with the Academy, pairing the best in movies with the best in television, and look forward to a long and successful collaboration in the years to come.”

    Academy Executive Director Bruce Davis added, “The Oscars remain the most-watched non-sports program in America, and we’re delighted that ABC will continue to be the setting for that jewel. The network has consistently demonstrated an understanding of what makes us unique, and has energetically supported those qualities.”

    The new agreement for the domestic broadcasts of the Academy Awards adds six years to the existing contract, which was scheduled to expire in 2014. International rights are covered by a separate agreement with Walt Disney International which runs through 2014.

    The 83rd Academy Awards, which will air live on Sunday, February 27, will be the 36th consecutive ceremony to air on ABC.

    While trying to explain to my friends why the NBC and Comcast merger was bad for this country, they all thought that this would have not effect on anything from pricing to programming.

    I was shocked, alarmed then frightened to learn that Keith Olbermann has left MSNBC. His final sign-off damn near brought me to tears. On a personal note, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow-and sometimes Chris Matthews kept me sane through the 2008 presidential election.

    This is scary because now it seems like any voice that opposes the views of Comcast can easily be taken away from the general public. This could lead to biased, tainted and unfair/unbalanced reporting. While we don’t know for sure why Olbermann left MSNBC, it is suspiciously coincidental that he was let go immediately after the merger was approved by the FCC. Damn shame too because I didn’t think we would see any effects until at least after January 28th. Countdown with Keith Olbermann would have called that BS from a mile away, but now we have no one as vigilant as Olbermann to call out the BS, state the obvious when the obvious has been ignored.

    I am worried about getting another viewpoint or perspective. At a time when conservative talk and punditry has the highest ratings ever, I am deeply concerned about having someone speak as strongly as Olbermann about liberal and progressive issues.

    I have signed online petitions and will be on the look out for what’s next for Mr. Olbermann.

    But for now, “Good Night and Good Luck.”
