I bet JR Block thinks this embarrassing puppet show-slash-interview program is a great come-on to promote the PG via Channel 2. KDKA would call it "public affairs programming." Anyone who'd waste the corporation's money on a joke like the Libercus publishing program the way JR did is a good candidate for some oceanfront property in Wexford.

Maybe the PG can commission a market study and see how many new readers are attracted by the great dialogues seen on "Sunday Edition." The rest of us know the answer, but one can't expect very much intuition from JR and Allan.

That show exists because of John Craig. He loved the idea of the P-G being on TV, even in a fringe time slot like Sunday morning. There was a time when the paper would withhold stories from the early edition so TV stations couldn't grab them for the 11 o'clock news. Under Craig, the P-G started the partnership with KDKA TV and couldn't wait to have their scoops on the air.

Craig's concept must be an extension of that stupid Channel 13 PG show from the old newsroom, the one that ran in the late 1980's. I bet Beltway Dave would just as soon not bother with this but the idea of a KD alliance is so burned into the institutional culture that he's stuck with it.

If I were new to Pittsburgh, considering a PG subscription, seeing "Sunday Edition" once would convince me to steer clear. Nearly as bad: Gretchen McKay's silly performances on TV2's afternoon news. God, is she full of herself. And guess what? No one is impressed.
