The head of TCM shills on Yglesias's site

Plucked from the comments of Matthew Yglesias's political blog (which happened to be discussing "Mad Men"). This is really very odd:

Might I suggest trying Turner Classic Movies? (disclaimer: I'm the head of programming); today is devoted to Broderick Crawford and the films tonight include "Born Yesterday" ('50) and "All the King's Men" and tomorrow is devoted to Kirk Douglas including "Ace in the Hole," "Gunfight at the OK Corral," "Champion" and several others. Please forgive the plug but there is some great stuff out there.

And sure enough, the head of programming for TCM is Charlie Tabesh. It's not enough that TCM has poached all the good movies that AMC used to show, now they have their head of programming on the internets making attempts to subtly steer people away from AMC shows. Way to go, Charlie! (though let me offer my enthusiastic recommendation for Ace in the Hole and TCM in general)
