Their Revolutions will NOT be Televised

First play this game.  Try to guess if Sheen or Gaddafi said these crazy quotes. Then you can read my column, which was inspired by playing this game a couple times.

The idea that the news will only cover what the people want is nothing new but it just is really a sore spot right now as America would rather get a front row seat to Charlie Sheen’s self-destruction then be up to date on what’s happening in Libya. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, but we were captivated when Egypt went on strike and Mubarak finally stepped down. I guess we didn’t have a celebrety crisis to distract us then.
