Is it the fault of Keith Samples whose last day as president of Media Rights Capital is October 31st? (I just was told that he was fired for “irregularities”. Yes I know what they are. No, I can’t write them without being sued. The two sides were trying to work out a separation agreement which is why it’s taken so long for Samples to exit.) Or are co-CEOs Asif Satchu and Modi Wiczyk to blame because they were uber-ambitious and bit off more than they could chew? Or maybe Tribune TV punted for putting MRC and The CW together in a failed to bid to help its tanking CW affiliates? Or else the problem really lies with Les Moonves and Barry Meyer for creating yet another weblet that no one wants to watch no matter who’s programming? Fuck it — let’s blame everybody!
Discuss amongst yourselves.
