Professor Media Matters

I am a media professional with 6 years as a TV producer and reporter, and college professor in the field of Communications. I am also a Conservative with a passion for pop culture. This will be my attempt to put the "me" in media. It will be my take on movies, TV, books, magazines, newspapers, the Internet and all that is the worldwide media.

KELLY CLARKSON KUDOS: I am becoming a huge fan of Kelly Clarkson. I have never watched "American Idol" so I know only in passing that she is the first big winner of this hit TV program. Now I can understand why. Instead, I have become familiar with her through her radio hits. And they just keep coming. Now with her second CD out, entitled "Breakaway" she has produced multiple radio hits. All three of them have been favorites of mine -- the title track "Breakaway," "Since U Been Gone" and "Behind These Hazel Eyes." These three songs are catchy, rockin' tunes. I highly recommend them and can't wait for her next single to be released. Kelly, keep 'em coming!

On a side note, Kelly has faced some rumors that she lip synchs in concert. To my knowledge, nothing has been substantiated. Personally, I don't have a problem with lip synching in concerts. I want the songs to sound like they do on the radio. And with all the dancing and running around that performers have to do these days to make a show, I can understand why they may need to augment their "live" performance with some lip synching. I do have a problem if you don't sing on your recordings, though, similar to what Milli Vanilli were caught doing in the 90's. That is very lame.

Please put your own "me" in media, and tell me what you think.

I don't like Kelly Clarkson's music at all. Now Ryan Cabrera other other hand that is more like it.
