How's this for a change of pace... an issue-oriented TSOYA! We talk with two people I really like about a phenomenon I really hate: celebrity snark.
Amelie Gillette is the author of the very funny column and blog "The Hater" for The Onion AV Club. Alex Blagg is one of the bloggers on BestWeekEver.TV, the blog spinoff of the popular VH1 series.
We talk about the proliferation of celebrity snark, the recent Kimmel/Gawker kerfuffle and much more.
