It’s a Cantankerous Edition of ‘The Mix’

In a stark departure from the usually warm-and-fuzzy editions of The Daily Mix we bring you each week, tonight’s show may send you scurrying for the Alka-Seltzer.

How come?

Because it’s chock full of interviews with stars who are bickering about one thing or another.

Cases in point:

Inside Edition anchor Deborah Norville believes that the CBS Evening News messed up big-time back in 1995 by not pursuing an interview with Osama bin Laden.

CAPTION: “The executive produced of the ‘CBS Evening News’ said, ‘That’s such a downer. I don’t want those kinds of negative stories on the news,’” Deborah (above) tells us.

“The executive producer of the ‘CBS Evening News’ said, ‘ I don’t want those kinds of negative stories on the news,’” Deborah (above) tells us.

—Former local-marker anchorman Nick Clooney asserts that two of the three cable news nets are breeding a nation of dangerous people.

Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, reveals that at least one list- ener of his new ABC Radio show hates co-host Mika Brzezinski – because “her voice makes [him] want to vomit!”

The French Con- nection cinematog- rapher Owen Roizman abhors director William Friedkin’s new Blu-ray transfer of the classic Big Apple cop flick.

William Friedkin in turn states in no uncertain terms that Owen’s opinion is wrong.

—Legendary diva Patti LuPone has had it up to here with NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s plan to close the heart of Broadway to vehicular traffic – fearing it’ll prevent her from getting to the theater.

So don’t miss The Mix, hosted by everyone’s favorite pod jockey, Shaun Daily, tonight – and every Monday – at 9 p.m. ET!
