Donny Deutsch’s Protege Becomes A Talking Head

OK, I’ll readily admit that when there’s nothing worth watching on TV, I’m a a sucker for the Hardball-Countdown-type cable news talking head shows. But I did a double take when I saw Deutsch LA’s ECD Eric Hirshberg on the Dan Abrams show last night.

The topic? The war in Iraq and President Bush’s definition of success. And there he is talking alongside Arianna Huffington and Pat Buchanan, in a conversation that really had nothing to do with advertising or marketing.
It’s not on YouTube, so just follow this link and click through about halfway in.
Hirshberg did fine, he wasn’t any better or worse than any other talking head, but still, he seems to be an odd choice to pontificate on the war. I suspect Donny is giving Eric some PR lessons.
