Shameless Synergy, Part 1

This is CNN: The shilling, corporate, synergistic version.

The network will run 25 minutes of clips from sister channel HBO's film The Girl in the Café as part of an hour long special on the film.

To try and obscure the fact that this is nothing more than a intra-corporate commercial, the special will be padded out with a Christiane Amanpour interview of Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain on the subject of global poverty.

So much for CNN being a true news network.

4 other geekspeak:

  • I'd like to direct viewers to this movie, only because it stars the lovely Kelly MacDonald, who starred in the terrific BBC miniseries "State of Play," and had a great guest starring role on "Alias" earlier this season.

  • She was good in Alias, and has a great accident, but this one reeks too strongly of chick flickiness for me.

  • You probably mean she has a great "accent," not "accident."

  • Accident? I'm on crack.
