You should be pretty up to date now on where we are. If you’re not, I would advise following these links as I give them to you. I was flipping through my satellite TV a few days back and caught 5 minutes of the Idols highlights channel, testing to see if such a short spurt would reveal the usual slow motion car crash. It did. The result was the article entitled DAVE THOMPSON DROPS IDOLS BOMBSHELL .
Within 24 hours I received emails from both Idols judges mentioned in the story, Dave Thompson and Randall Abrahams. I published and responded to Dave’s email in the article entitled DAVE THOMPSON CONFIRMS WINNING MEANS NOTHING. And now, I give you Randall’s email and my response in video format.

Subject: Idols 5
I read with keen interest your comments relating to this latest
season of the show and issues related to Dave and myself
Firstly, who exactly are you and what exactly qualifies you to make
these willfully attention-seeking comments?!
As Dave pointed out in his mail – you seem to spend an inordinate
amount of time and effort attempting to apply Chomsky to Idols – are
you by any chance in the process of completing a doctoral thesis?
It is your contention that I am the “Simon Cowell” of the group –
this is a view held by several others? Have you ever met Simon or
worked with him? Or are you basing your humble opinion on a
comparison between an American and a South African reality television
Finally, if you need to resort to expletives to make your points
perhaps you would want to engage me face to face – in order to test
both my intelligence and my patience. This is an open invitation!
Finally, I resent your overall (dis)regard for both my own and Dave’s
professional integrity and our professional backgrounds to date.
Yours is not an opinion shared by large numbers of people in the
entertainment industry but as you’re so well versed I’m sure you know
what they say about opinions
My warmest regards
By its very nature you can only have ONE “finally,” Randall.
Anyway, we get the idea.
