Blogger Foster Kamer made a dick joke at MSG/Cablevision owner James Dolan’s expense on the Village Voice’s Runnin’ Scared blog a few months ago. Apparently, no one puts Jimmy in a corner because not only has MSG Entertainment pulled all of its ads from the Village Voice, so did Live Nation at Dolan’s request. We’re talking about $100K lost for the Village Voice.
Unbelievably, Kamer not only wasn’t fired but has also been afforded the opportunity to take a few more shots Dolan and his empire. Good for the Voice for standing up for their writer and showing that the company certainly doesn’t have Dolan’s dick in their proverbial mouth.
Let’s take a look at what else is happening this afternoon…
- College Humor nails the similarities between music festies
- The schedule for the Summer Camp Music Festival is out
- Wilco’s Solid State fest adds Vetiver and others to the bill
- R.I.P. Lena Horne – singer, actress and civil rights activist
- Jay Bennett’s final album, Kicking at the Perfumed Air, will be released on July 10 with all proceeds going to charity
- High Sierra announces this year’s Troubadour Sessions
Finally, Widespread Panic will act as the house band tomorrow on CNN from 9AM – 11AM [EDT] as the cable news network celebrates the launch of its new studios in Atlanta. The boys will answer questions from CNN Newsroom host Kyra Phillips and play into and out of commercial breaks during the two-hour program. This isn’t Panic’s first performance at a CNN studio as the group rocked the roof of the NYC CNN studios way back in 1998.
