WTD hits the MSMJanuary 27, 2008
Oh, dear. I’m so used to rambling away in my own little corner of the interwebs that it’s a shock when anyone actually pays attention. Apologies to Pat Kenny, who may have choked on his eggs this morning when he turned to page 6 of The Sunday Independent. For those of you unfamiliar with the paper, here’s a sample headline from today’s edition.
(I had to photograph it; no-one would have believed me otherwise.)
Pat, a plea. Don’t be too upset by either the news story or the original post. The Seinfeld interview was a car crash, but Larry King didn’t do too well either. Perhaps my original and somewhat harsh words were based on circumstantial evidence. I’ll quote Kieran who said in the comments on the original post “…To be fair, (Pat) is one of the most tenacious and assured political/current affairs interviewers in the country…” So, there! Quit the ‘Late Late’ with its confusing popular culture types and start the Irish version of Newsnight! After all, why be Partridge when you could be Paxman?
(P.S I love the way they printed photographs of Pat and I on either end of the piece (in the print version), like we were two prize-fighters about to rumble. And printing my subject heading as a direct quote was a typically disingenuous bit of journalistic jiggery-pokery. You stay classy, Jerome Reilly!)
