Tim Rutten is at the peak of his form today, castigating Dan Rather for being a buck passing whiner. Okay, Rutten put it more eloquently, but that’s the gist. LAT.

Mary McNamara critiques Rather’s performance on Larry King. It’s sad when King is the coherent one, isn’t it? McNamara has really hit her stride as a TV critic–maybe she had to let it out after years of writing suck-up celebrity interviews. LAT.

AFTRA is going after TMZ TV. Seems the tabloidy show didn’t want to pay union money, which explains the utter nobodies hired to host. TabloidBaby.

James Woods says Nicole Brown Simpson wanted to get cozy with him. Even if this is true, shut up! Do her kids need to know this? Page Six.

Katha Pollitt and Deborah Solomon have a hen-fest, during which Pollitt displays her ignorance about the rise of neighborhood nail salons. Don’t forget–when learning to drive, she admitted to not knowing anyone Asian. NYT.
