Controversy sells. It always did and it yesterday and into today with all the coverage of the fall-out between Star Jones, who was disappeared from "The View," and all-worked-up normally staid Barbara Walters.
So, you gotta ask if this whole cat fight has been carefully scripted. I mean, like come on, the content of all this is trivial and yet Walters is presenting it as Shakespearean tragedy. Surely, there is in the works a NEW YORKER cartoon with Walters prone and looking a lot like Julius C., a knife sticking out. The caption reads, "Et tu, Star Jones."
