Re: The Worldwide Pants/CBS Boycott:

All right, all right... Craig Kilborn can have his stupid show! I don't care!

After a few days of e-mailing this, that, and the other, I have come to a conclusion that this boycott is not the way to go. I mean, the whole idea is ludicrous. (Yeah, that's the word, ludicrous.) First of all, out of the 200 or so e-mails that I have sent out, I only generated one positive response, while a good chunk of the replies have said that Craig is cool, or CBS will never listen to me, or it's only a magazine article, or I'm crazy and need to get a life - or all of them combined!
The point is that I think CBS jumped the gun when they went to hire Craig to replace Tom Snyder at CBS. They never looked at the sexist side of Craig, and that Esquire article, along with him not attending sexual harassment seminars at Comedy Central were two good examples.
Perhaps I am overreacting a little bit when I imply that he is a sexist. Or maybe it's because he truly used a faux sexist attitude during that interview which changed Lizz's life.
Whatever the case may be, I just want to say that I did not organize this crazy boycott idea for the purpose of putting bad spin on Craig Kilborn, Lizz Winstead, Leslie Moonves, Mel Karmazin, Tom Snyder, and everybody over at CBS, David Letterman, Rob Burnett and the Worldwide Pants family, Esquire magazine, everybody associated with "The Daily Show", everybody associated with Comedy Central, and Robert Downey, Jr. (Nope, wait, Bobby boy is all about bad press these days!)
No, seriously, I'm not trying to make a joke, but I would like to just say that if there is a joke, it is this boycott. I never imagined the consequences, I just took things in my own hands. I don't want it to look like Lizz was organizing this boycott. It was me, only me, and like I started it on May 4, I have put an end to it.
And too everybody who received an e-mail from me about the boycott (the names are too many to mention, literally), I apologize to each and every one of you for involving and informing you of this scheme.
Let this be a lesson to you kids: Whenever you feel something is wrong in the world, organizing a boycott is not the solution. A boycott will not change the situation for the better. Whatever it is, just turn your head the other way and let it die out.
That's what I said to myself about the Bush administration, and look how well that turned out for me.

Thank you,
