I was trolling through MSN today, and I saw an article about MTV and their political reporting, and I suddenly wondered - whatever happened to MTV's Queen of Political Reporting, Tabitha Soren?
Back in the old days of MTV - when they played videos, had good game shows like Remote Control and Singled Out, and The Real World actually tried to accomplish something (aside from hook-ups) - there was Tabitha, the little red-headed pixie, trying to be a serious journalist. While no one took her too seriously, at least she tried, and she looked pretty good doing it. Yes, I have a soft spot for redheads. She interviewed everyone, although he was tougher on George Bush than Bill Clinton, so I guess there was some legitimacy to it all. Then, POOF! Gone.
So, where is she? Right here......
Wait, that's not her.. Who put that there??what exactly are Digby Dollars. Rhino???
She kinda looks the same, although she's got the Plain Jane thing going on, because serious journalists don't wear makeup. Or so I've heard. She does a lot of documentaries on various topics, mostly leaning towards the liberal side - no surprise. Mostly, she got married and had three kids in the last few years. No word if they're registered Democrats yet!
A couple tidbits from the Useless Information file - before she got the MTV gig, the Texas native appeared in the Beastie Boys "Fight for the Right" video while still at NYU. Her real name - Tabitha Sornberger. If you want her to speak at your group's function, call her agent at 212-645-4200.
