We Still Love Simon Dumenco

Media columnist for Advertising Age Simon Dumenco, who once won our affections by calling Huffington Post a “media plantation” penned a farcical satire of Sarah Palin and her future as a CNN star.

Dumenco writes:

WASILLA, ALASKA (Feb. 18, 2010) — Once again shocking the media establishment, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announced that she was leaving her CNN talk show, “The Sarah Palin Power Hour,” after just four months on the air and well short of the terms of her two-year contract. In an echo of the manner in which she announced her resignation from political office last summer, Ms. Palin spoke to a small gathering of reporters at a hastily called press conference at a moose orphanage in Outer Wasilla, a suburb of Wasilla reachable only by dog sled. With her family at her side, she stated that, “I believe I can better progress the cause of broadcasting by working outside of broadcasting.”

Swoon.
