CBS critic now lauded on CBS for role as stay-at-home dad

In 2003, Mike Paranzino, a conservative activist, organized in response to the Tiffany Network planning to air a horrendously biased (not to mention poorly acted) miniseries on Ronald and Nancy Reagan. Paranzino and others were successful in getting CBS to drop-kick the dramatic monstrosity to a sister cable network Showtime.

Fast forward to today, and CBS and Paranzino again cross paths, but this time on more amicable terms. Today's edition of The Early Show featured a now-retired stay-at-home dad. Correspondent Tracy Smith reported the feature. No mention was made of Paranzino's fight with CBS, although his career as a political activist was mentioned in passing.
