Beverly Hills, CA -- The Summer 2017 Television Critics Association tour excitingly collided with the real world in real time Monday when White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was fired after only ten days on the job just as a press conference for the Friday night PBS news program Washington Week was about to start. Indeed, the session began with an announcement by Marie Nelson, Vice President of News and Public Affairs at PBS, that according to multiple sources the Mooch was out. Her words were met with an uncharacteristic round of applause by the reporters in the room, at most times a tough group to activate. “Welcome to the high velocity world of political news,” she said with a smile. “At a time like this, I’m incredibly pleased to introduce you to Robert Costa, the new moderator of Washington Week.”
