The LA Times attacks a major cable television program!

Andrew Malcolm apparently felt obligated to make sure that the correction of the truly offensive thing that his host newspaper (the LA Times) did was made as public as possible.  I might normally raise an eyebrow at that, but in this particular case I can understand the impulse for damage control.  It’s way over the top.

TV listings: The Prime-Time TV grid in Thursday’s Calendar section mistakenly listed MTV’s “Jackass” show on the MSNBC cable schedule at 7 and 10 p.m. where instead MSNBC’s “Countdown With Keith Olbermann” should have been listed.

If I was one of the owners of Jackass I would be seriously considering a libel suit right now: I am not a lawyer, but I imagine that the damage that the LA Times has just done to the brand by maliciously associating it with Keith Olbermann would easily justify one.  And then there’s the implied insult in the veiled suggestion that fans of Jackass might also like Olbermann…

  1. eddie bear again divines the future as I see it. Malcolm will be in the crosshairs of the agitpreppie elites soon just like Jon Voight is at this very moment, and that for Jon’s admitting that the US is teetering near a tipping point, as we evil-mongers might note and continue our shoulder-to-the-wheel Putsch…!

    Sorry, just can’t help myself…..
