    "Howard Stern is in the news again for saying something controversial. What's new? Even if you HATE Howard Stern, you have to admit he gives THE BEST interviews. From Lady Gaga to Jeff Bridges, The King of All Media excels at the celeb sit-down."

    I can't believe people actually write and publish this garbage. This has to be a fake story, right? Can anyone not getting paid by Buchwald still think this? And the comments are comically ridiculous. At least the Shed also got a shout out in the comments and they used a pretty crappy picture of the pelican.

    I can't name 10 interviews he's done in his whole career that I haven't bailed on after 10 minutes.

    Wigman couldn't even give a shit enough about his "#3 interview" to watch his most famous and revered movie. (The Big Lebowski)

    Fuck him and his lame attempt to get an interview show after Sirius kicks his ass to the curb.

    This must be the backup plan. No Sirius offer, I bet he does a CNN/Fox Interview show-Who knows, maybe the Hallmark Chanel will offer him a nightly interview show.
    Tick Tock, time is passing, and no offers from Sirius. The closer it gets to the end of 2015, the less leverage Wiggy has.

    Mlaw, that means zero.
    Publicist play the game with staff writers all the time.
    once again, Buchwald is not paying anybody ( :facepalm: ), it is not what agents due.
    A publicist for SXM has connections with various media outlets & while money does not change hands most times, favors do.
    Beth gets a decent amount of publicity for doing nothing. How that occurs is, media outlet X agrees to promote KittenFest2016 in exchange for a media opportunity with one of the publicist bigger clients

    or maybe a guy who writes for a pop culture website decides to write about a show he listens to, or music he likes.

    Of course, but that has nothing to do with my reply to
    I think you are saying that it is stupid to think every news piece is "paid for" & I agree.
    These days there is almost not enough celeb news to keep these millions of outlets busy, so writing about a guy on AGT & who does celeb interviews on SXM's top station is not exactly out of the question.

    Beth though ..................... ;)

    look, Beth appears to be well liked, she's doing a show with kittens, and it was one of Hallmark's best rated shows. Every show gets promotion, they've been promoting it for months (I actually watch the channel) Did you notice Taylor Swift on almost every show, every channel the month her album dropped?

    Are you REALLY comparing Taylor Swift releasing a CD to Beth hosting something on one of the lowest rated cable channels?

    C'mon MLaw ........... I like you & all, but that is insane

    If you don't think that a big reason Beth gets any publicity is due to her PR person pulling in favors - YOU ARE NUTS

    I definitely think there's an arrangement with Buchwald/Howard and some media outlets. Several times there have been nearly identical glowing articles about Howard on multiple obscure websites, all supposedly written by different reporters. They all contain the same phrases and keywords Howard uses to hype himself and exaggerate his accomplishments. I had never heard of any of them before they printed those articles, the only one I remember the name of is emptylighthouse.com

    Between Howard's, AGT's or SXM's publicist & media outlets?
    OF COURSE
    Again, that is how it works for everyone
    Buchwald is an agent. That is not what his office does.
    An agents job is to get auditions & to broker the contracts.
    Can an agent advise what PR firms, etc. to use? Of course, but the idea that DBA does all this things is not based in reality.

    But SXM, sends out press releases every day with quotes, figures, etc. Media outlets pick up on that & that is why they have almost identical info.
