    As many of you may have heard, we were recently attacked quite viciously by a member of the TCA Board of Directors. Here is our official response to his accusation that we are ‘MORONS’ —

    This seems like an overreaction. A very long one too.

    I don’t regret calling the video “a celebration of ignorance.” But I honestly do regret calling the participants “morons.”

    How nice that Feinberg regrets blasting us as “morons,” but it’s shocking that he stands by his slam at our TCA critique as “an astounding celebration of ignorance.” Notice that he doesn’t bother to address any of the points we bring up. He doesn’t refute any of them, just hurls his insults and walks smugly off.

    Yea I wouldn’t say it was a vicious attack but it was unprofessional. I don’t really know what to think of Fienberg. I listen to his and Sepinwall’s podcast every week and he definitely seems to be a moody guy with some bitterness to him. He also is somewhat smug and pretentious.

    Tom, I am fully on your side, your job and this websites job is to point out what award shows do well, and what they do wrong.  I am tired of these sensitve attacks from crtics/bloggers who can’t take a little criticism.  This is something I have noticed with Sasha Stone lately as well, in the sense that it feels like people are attacking her, and her opinions.  You and Sasha were my introduction to the understanding of film/television critique back in the early 2000s.  Now with twitter people are being far too sensitive.  You all do a fantastic job, keep up the good work, and if you ever need help blasting more than happy too, bravo!
