Comic-Con: Cable Fandom at its Finest

@juliannetwin

July 29, 2014

This was my first year attending San Diego’s Comic-Con. I’ve never been into comic books or super heroes and I don’t consider myself a movie buff. Having experienced the Con from afar, hearing stories and seeing pictures, I thought I understood what it was. But now having seen it myself, I discovered it is so…

But what today passes for news can’t compare to the real, unedited authenticity of what’s happening at any moment on the floor…

March 10, 2014

In front of a packed ballroom at the Driskill Hotel, with another 30 people outside hoping for seats to open up (they didn’t), three TV heavyweights wrestled with the herculean question, “Who am I?”  ESPN President John Skipper, Univision President Kevin Conroy and PBS President Paula Kreger along with CNN reporter Brian Stelter attempted to…
