Cable "News" Newsmodels have a new nickname!
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 11:23 AM by johnfunk
... and we have Samantha Bee to thank for it. Watch The Daily Show's remake of Al Jazeera...

Watch the segment...

...and next time Heidi Collins or Norah O'Donnell has one of those "episodes," you'll know what I'm talking about...

(spoiler space)

...namely, "There goes Peppermint Gomez"!

3. What a hoot!
And what good sports the Al Jazeerah news team were to go along with it. Personally, I'd like more hard news told in an unbiased manner...or the opportunity to view news from around the world on my TV. Guess I'll have to stick to my computer, though, to do that.

4. that was an amazing piece -- not JUST humor -- S Bee did something REAL

7. So, she pretty much turned Al-Jezeera into FOX and Friends, then?
That banter about "mama teaching him a thing or two" seemed straight out of Brian Kilmeade and that blonde woman who's name I can't remember now.

8. You're thinking of E.D. "Peppermint Gomez" Hill...

17. Wow, I'm behind ... I hadn't even heard "newsmodels".
and speaking of behind ...

"I want you to put your pinky up America's behind and massage the prostate" :rofl:

That's up there with Andy Dick as Bu**sh**'s speech/debate coach.

21. I only heard the term a few months ago, in reference to the leggy, vapid FOX hostesses
I like the term -- and "Peppermint Gomez" is the perfect newsmodel name. Gotta hand it to Samantha Bee and her TDS cohorts -- she is an al-Jahero!.
