One Ringie Dingie?
"Blind Item: Please Hold for the Next Available Panicked Mogul
CARE TO GUESS?
Which of five networks is said to have been forced to hire extra people to handle all the calls flooding in from angry fans demanding a fair deal for writers? Our source says an assistant to the CEO of the network's parent company contacted a fan site that posted the CEO's phone number and pleaded, "What do I have to do to get you people to stop this?"
You see, when your business is keeping viewers and advertisers happy, there IS such a thing as bad publicity."
**Be sure to read the comments. It appears the "panicked mogul" is none other than Les Moonves.
Another interesting comment:
"You do know that Les Moonves' brother is Jon Moonves, who is on Fanlib's board of directors?"
Finally, there's Fanlib. I had never heard of the place.
