Marcus Vanderberg Joins FishbowlLA

To fill the gap created by the summer departure of Tina Dupuy for a managing editor position with political blog CrooksandLiars.com, FishbowlLA would like to officially welcome Marcus Vanderberg as its newest co-editor.

Vanderberg (pictured) currently contributes to video-centric African-American community news site TheGrio.com and freelances for BET.com. The LA native was also a member for the past year of Mediabistro’s Sports Newser blog, which was recently shuttered.

Born in LA and raised in Inglewood, Vanderberg was the sports and entertainment editor at the Daily Sundial at Cal State Northridge, before transferring to Hofstra University in New York to complete his studies. He has interned with ESPN, Sports Illustrated, The Denver Post and AOL, and also covered the fantasy baseball beat for MLB.com.

Who Gives a F*ck About an Oxford Comma? Plenty of Us, Apparently.

Yesterday news broke on Twitter and our sister blog GalleyCat that Oxford University Press was doing away with its namesake comma, eliciting wails of collective grief from grammar nerds throughout the interwebs.

Mercifully, the report wasn’t exactly true. The Oxford University Press Style Guide remains the same. It was only the University of Oxford publicists that dropped the Oxford comma. And as anyone who has ever read a press release can attest, publicists are hardly the definitive word on punctuation.

Also known as the serial comma, the Oxford comma is defined by the OUP as the “comma before and or or in a list of three or more items.” It has plenty of supporters and detractors both, as yesterday’s premature obituary revealed.

FishbowlLA Editor on MSNBC

Your favorite FishbowlLA editor (face it), Tina Dupuy, was on Cenk Uygur‘s MSNBC show on Friday. Watch the clip above!

Liberals!? In Hollywood?! OMG!!

You mean everyone in Hollywood doesn’t lean Mel Gibson?!

Your favorite FishbowlLA editor Tina Dupuy and Cenk Uygur discuss this new revelation from Ben Shapiro on The Young Turks.

FishbowlLA Editor Interviewed at E&P

Your favorite FishbowlLA editor (just face it) was interviewed in the new/old newspaper trade mag Editor and Publisher.

Rob Tornoe writes:

An irreverent yet unassuming humorist, Tina Dupuy, syndicated by Cagle Cartoons, has been making waves in newspapers across the country since starting her weekly column in 2010. An obsession with famed San Francisco Chronicle satirist Art Hoppe led Dupuy down the path of journalism, and her experience as a stand-up comedian has infused her strong liberal viewpoints with a sharp sense of humor.

The Young Turks Talk Journalism

Cenk Uygur and your favorite FBLA editor Tina Dupuy talked about Julian Assange of Wikileaks last night on The Young Turks. Sarah Palin and others have called for his assassination. Such a measured and reasonable response…

Andy Cobb Takes on Sharron Angle

Sharron Angle is running against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada. In the state that brought us “checkups for chickens,” Angle has managed to out gaffe everyone. On Friday she told a group of Latino high school students that they really looked Asian to her. And that she herself had been mistaken for being Asian.

This video is a Second City production directed and written by the infamous Andy Cobb, concept by your favorite FBLA editor Tina Dupuy. The Angle impressionist is Ayumi Iizuka.

Jumping Into the Fishbowl

On this, Columbus Day 2010, it gives me great pleasure to be able to introduce myself as FishbowlLA’s newest blogger.

When I moved from Toronto to Los Angeles in the late fall of 1993, I did what any self-respecting Canadian would: I drove around at night with the convertible top down, marveling at the balmy low-50′s temperatures. As winter season approaches, a new wave of Canadian and Scandinavian west coast transplants will no doubt soon be cruising down Sunset Boulevard in similar fashion.


Since my arrival in L.A., I have hung out at the House of Blues Foundation Room with Jimi Hendrix Jr.; helped filmmaker Brian Herzlinger land a date with Drew Barrymore; felt the wrath of Mel Gibson after authoring an article about video piracy; and become fascinated with North Korea as a result of starting a grassroots Twitter and WordPress campaign in 2009 on behalf of detained Current TV journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee.

The Young Turks in the LAT

James Rainey has discovered The Young Turks and their Internet talk show thingy. We of course follow the plight of Cenk Uygur and crew closely because they’re down the street – they film out of a building owned by Mel Brooks on Wilshire – and they’re a phenom and like nothing else we’ve ever seen. Well…almost.

Rainey writes:

It’s tempting to view Uygur as the prototype for a new generation of political commentators, who hone their craft with blogs and Web videos and then transition to older platforms. Political commentator and comedian Tina Dupuy calls Uygur “the Tila Tequila of political talk-show hosts.” Others, no doubt, will follow.

But unlike the one-video wonders who burst on the pop music scene, it’s likely that the future political talkers in the Uygur mode will make their bones more gradually. It takes more than one catchy lyric to build the world view, credibility and tone that win audiences in the long run.
