    Albom on the infamous 2005 Final Four column:

    "Those guys swore to me that they were gonna be there, and so I said, Well, they're gonna be there, so we'll just write that they were there. You shouldn't do that, you should just write that they planned to be there. That's all. It was just missing a word. That's it."

    He still doesn't get it. I'd say amazing, but that would require me to be stunned that that little cocksucker has no contrition...

    The amazing part of that article, to me at least, was how he mentioned that his publisher, editor, people from Knight Ridder apologized to <i>him</i> after the incident for "making too big a deal out of it" (or words to those effect). Yes, how dare they challenge basic journalism ethics.

    "They planned to be there, and here's what they would have said if they actually were."

    I know I won't have to meet Albom in heaven.

  6. That is unbelievable.
    So if I write that, say, "Space aliens shot Bobby Kennedy" instead of "Sirhan Sirhan shot Bobby Kennedy" I'm right because I used the same amount of words.
    Release the fucking hounds.

    "And here's what they would have been wearing and this is the form of transportation each player took to St. Louis."

    And this is what I would have said to them, and this is what they would have said to me.

    Manky's just mad because they didn't interview Saraceno.

    Anyhoo, I don't think EW has been the same since Mullen stopped doing Hot Sheet. But it is by far the most journalistically rigorous of the celebrity mags.

    Just because pointy-ears has the entire DFP hierarchy buffaloed doesn't mean he has anyone
    here fooled, for a microsecond.

    A laughable, delusional clown. He found the key to the vault. He's welcome to the loot.
    But I'll never read him, again. To do so would be an utter waste of time -- and a sustained
    waste of cranial capacity.

    Unless you're a soccer mom or retired, he doesn't care...
