> Slate’s James Scurlock writes about “a bottle-blond former waitress and self-described ’55-year-old virgin’ with a taste for the good life [who] became the financial messiah for millions of Americans…” That would be Suze Orman.
> Esquire doesn’t need no CNBC or FBN or even Bloomberg TV for their financial news. They’ll take PBS stalwart Nightly Business Report with Paul Kangas any day. “The faces are not usually made for TV. The brains, though, are made for sharp analysis and sober conjecture.”
> And who are the best writers in TV News? The WGA (East & West) presented their awards Saturday. ABC Weekend News’ Joel Siegel, Karen Mooney, and David Muir won in the regularly scheduled, bulletin or breaking report category. PBS’ Bill Moyers and Michael Winship won in the analysis, feature or commentary category for “Yankee Stadium and the New Gilded Age.”
