Gosh, I got thrown off another firearms forum yesterday...I accidentallly mentioned that I produce SHOOTING GALLERY and that Outdoor Channel was committed to Second Amendment issues. POOF! Away I went! This from the same forum that has been steadily slandering OC and me by implication every since the InterMedia shows got dumped.
I'm apparently not allowed to mention that I have a new show coming, because that changes the terms of the argument. Instead of the Evil Wicked Giant Television Network stepping on the Plucky Little Guys, the argument becomes what it always was, one consumer product being replaced by a better consumer product. Welcome to Darwin 101.
The one forum that has always been stand-up is the competition forums from my friend of so many years Brian Enos. I've been a member of Brian's forums for years and years, and, yes, we have issues on whether or not I'm commercial — I am by definition a commercial product...it's a fine balancing act, but it's one that Brian and I have discussed.
