By Sandra Lord and Allison Lord – Caribbean (read bios) with contributions by Sandra Glushankoff Argentinian (read bio)

THE MOST ANNOYING MEDIA PERSONALITIES OF 2010:

• Nancy Grace-Glenn Beck-Rush Limbaugh &  Bill O’ReillyNancy Pelosi • Perez Hilton • Kate Gosselin • Gloria Allred Tiger Woods & Jesse James • Sarah Palin

Tired of sanctimonious media talking heads, unscrupulous and opportunistic politicians, no talent celebrities and self-made nobodies? So are we! Here is our list of 2010’s most annoying media personalities – media jerks – whom we think should have been “tarred and feathered” for their shenanigans in 2010. They will appear in no particular order as the level of annoyance is about the same for all.

THE MOST ANNOYING MEDIA PERSONALITIES OF 2010

Nancy Grace, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly:

The Three Stooges/Curly, Larry and Moe + One. However, what binds these four oddballs together is everything that is not genius. Grace, Beck, Limbaugh and O’Reilly are the epitome of today’s mean-spirited talk show hosts who seem to delight in their extraordinary ability to polarize the American people (er, despite the “extraordinary ability” part, this is not a compliment, guys), and their skill in the use of drama and theatrics to spew self-indulgent garbage on a daily basis. With the mistaken notion that they alone are the arbiters of truth, justice and liberty…oh, and let’s not forget American pride, these four angry, insecure, narcissistic loudmouths take the cake for belittling and berating their guests to show who can best shoot opposing viewpoints into oblivion. This grouping reminds us of a charming little saying we learned while growing up in the Caribbean, “Empty vessels make the most noise.” For us, listening to these yell and scream is akin to getting one’s wisdom teeth pulled…with no painkillers. Ayayay!! Funny thing is, while they love to denigrate, intimidate and dish it out to any and everybody, they have a haaaaaard time taking criticism. Our advice – they should each get a copy of Beck’s little book, “Arguing with Idiots,” and have a conversation with the mirror.

NANCY PELOSI
(by Sandra Gluschankoff)
:

In 2007, Nancy Pelosi made history when she was elected the first woman to serve as Speaker of the House. However, in December 2010, there is an old phrase which sums up Nancy Pelosi’s political career in the Democratic Party: she has, to put it bluntly, “overstayed her welcome.” Get a clue woman! When your own people fear your presence at their public appearances when running for office, as if you were jinxed,  you have overstayed your welcome. When your popularity amongst registered voters plummets to 29 percent, as it was the case in this past November elections, it means it’s time to wrap up the show, hit the road and put a new face to the Democratic Party. No, we are not talking about another plastic surgery on (more…)

MEDIA JERKS – LEVI JOHNSTON

LEVI JOHNSTON

He’s got an overly whitened smile, and pumped pectorals that are sure to become ‘man boobs’ in a few years time; but he’s also got the pin up good looks of a teen idol that make him endearing to some.

To us, however, Levi Johnston is a babyish media jerk who, like his former “mother-in-law-in-waiting,” Sarah Palin, just can’t seem to go away. So, while he may be new to politics and entertainment, he has become a jerk in his own right.

In a desperate bid to extend his 15 minutes of fame and remain in the spotlight, Levi seems to latch onto any and every little opportunity to be the day’s media sound byte. Maybe the Palin “publicity-hungry gene” can be inherited just by association. Hmmm. Levi certainly has all the characteristics of Palinitis. Yes, that condition is as bad as it sounds!

Hey, he’s even getting involved in the family business – running for public office, eyeing the mayor’s chair in Wasilla. Not bad, huh, for a high school dropout, whose pregnant teenage girlfriend just happened to be the daughter of the Governor of Alaska, no less. Wonder what the laws up there say about sex with a minor. But that’s not our issue.

Truth is, we feel for Levi. He seems to be a nice, if not misguided young man whom comedienne, Kathy Griffin, described as (more…)

MEDIA JERKS — GLORIA ALLRED

GLORIA ALLRED

The fall of an icon. It happens more times than we can imagine, and we start wondering… How?

Picture it: a skanky mistress is wronged by her “John,” a philandering celebrity husband, loaded with $$$$. Hey, what’s that on the broom in the sky coming to the rescue?? It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Superman?? No, wait! It’s super-media hog attorney, Gloria Allgreed!

We used to admire Gloria Allred, the remarkable attorney and tireless crusader of women’s rights, who also fought against discrimination of any kind. She was the one who helped shed the international spotlight on the disturbing issue of (more…)

Media Jerks – Kate Gosselin

KATE GOSSELIN

It isn’t because she dances with two left feet or makes iRobot look like Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers that Kate Gosselin has made our Media Jerks list. We are just sick of Kate using her kids to further her so called “career,” crying ad nauseum about struggling to make ends meet, and acting like she’s some poor single mom having to take every job in the limelight to feed her children. She is not the only person in the world with multiples to feed!

In fact, the Harris kids, born in 2002 — America’s first recorded set of surviving African-American sextuplets — have no television show and the family has barely been able to survive on the father’s salary of about $30,000 a year as an elementary school teacher.

Kate Gosselin is making enough money off her books and appearances that should allow her to stop crying already!

We don’t doubt that Kate loves her children very much and wants to provide for them but it (more…)

Media Jerks – TMZ Staff

TMZ STAFF

While we give this week’s Media Icon honor to Harvey Levin, creator of the ground-breaking TMZ entertainment magazine TV show and website, unfortunately, we have to give the Media Jerks honor to his underling on-camera staff.

Now, here are a bunch who, as we say in the Caribbean, “left school too early.” (more…)

Media Jerks – Sarah Palin

SARAH PALIN

How has Sarah Palin managed to seduce so many people into thinking she could conceivably be the President of the United States and Leader of the Free World?

There are a few things in her favor: her feistiness – she gives as good as she gets; her sense of humor – she knows how to laugh at herself and minimize the effect of a multitude of humiliating faux pas; her marketing skills – she has perfected the art of playing the media like a hooker practiced in the art of seduction and has them eating out of her hand; her brazenness – she has a unique ability to look you squarely in the face, with unwavering eyes and that beaming, shameless smile while she gives uninformed, meaningless, answers to pointed questions; oh, yeah, and she’s sexier than McCain, Newt, Giuliani or any of the Republicans to boot!

But none of these things is presidential. (more…)
