V: Not just an energy drink

May 20, 2009

And for those of us born in the Old Country, V was never a drink, it was that awful TV series about alien invaders.

It wasn’t that bad I suppose… Great premise, just so very earnest and well, American.

Now they’re remaking it.

If you’ve ever wondered why journalists aren’t paid enough, this clip shows off the power balance of modern PR versus Media quite nicely I think. The expectation is that you’ll write/produce fluff and that that’s what the readers/watchers want. It’s not, which is why laying off journalists and reducing the already pitiful amount freelancers are paid is not going to work as a cost-saving measure.

Bonus points if you can tell me who that is and why they’ll never take the skies from me.
