Reporter Shaun Byron and Video Editor Andrew DuPont sound-off on whatever is on their minds, from politics to pop-culture, from movies to the main stream media. Local, national, world-wide? If it's in the media mix, these two are sure to have an opinion on it.

Snoopy on the Web

It's amazing how much content is being transferred or finding new life on the Web these days.
In recent weeks, it's been announced by Craig Schulz, Charles Schulz's son, that 20 Peanuts digital shorts will be made available online.
Schulz is president of Creative Associates, which approved and manages all of the licensing for Peanuts-related products.
In interviews, he said the webisodes are an attempt to get children to turn to the comic strip in books and newspapers.
I can't help but be happy about that. I just hope enough kids are willing to get their mom or dad to pay the .99 per webisode or $7.99 for the season pass.
Another positive move toward the Internet and the entertainment world is MGM talking to the folks at YouTube about featuring some of their flicks on their site.
Not a bad way to get some of the best and brightest stars of yesterday to an audience who might not know just how great some of those old musicals from the 40s and 50s are.
These types of marketing initiatives that show just how much technology has changed our lives in the last 20 years.
It's also nice to know more is being done to showcase the best artistic efforts of our culture, rather than just thinking of the Web as a quick way to get porn or order airline tickets.
