Here's an example of how the public is mis-served by journalists: Today at the Television Critics Association Winter sessions, a panel for Bravo's new show "Platinum Hit" included judges Kara DioGuardi and Jewel, and producers Evan Bogart and Glenda Hersh. "Platinum Hit" is yet another one of those reality/talent shows that I couldn't have given less of a crap about, particularly since the kind of singer-songwriter style of music they are promoting is the exact kind that I detest but I find myself rushing to the defense of Kara DioGuardi, who was pseudo-famously bumped off of Fox's "American Idol," who demurred when asked several questions about how things ended up on "American Idol," her feelings about that show and the personalities and producers involved with it, etc.After DioGuardi answered that she would be happy to answer those questions directly after the panel but that she was part of the panel to discuss "Platinum Hit." In the room of 200 people I heard 3 or 4 people say stuff like "whoa," or "hmmm" but there was no "booing," particularly in the true sense of booing which calls to mind a deafening roar of disapproval with perhaps a couple airborne tomatoes - this simply didn't happen.
