Man wastes breath, viewers’ time

Famed jokesmith Ken Levine has the same problem I have.

Reason #298,739,092 why I hate Dr. Phil. According to people were there and witnessed it – Dr. Phil screamed off-air obscenities at some poor young Wichita TV interviewer for asking her own questions instead of the ones the publicist had prepared. The direct quote from Dr. Phi was: “Katie Couric asked those questions but YOU couldn’t?!”

Dr. Phil has an attitude, a life, and a degree of success that he just hasn’t earned. It beats me why he’s on the air.
