Tip Sheet has a very funny and spot-on article about the failure of the TV morning shows again to schedule interviews with the Newbery and Caldecott Award winners.
Coupled with that is a shout-out to the all-out hilarious Stephen Colbert interviews with Maurice Sendak this week that have folks ROTFL. You can stop over at Wisconsin's YSS blog to see both clips.
Finally the comments in the first article referenced reminded me of a conversation with friends that I had after the news hit that the Today show wouldn't invite the authors. We speculated that if the attendees at the press conference were gowned and tuxedoed up, would that get the TV producers thinking how special our children's book creators are?
