How did Will Ferrell come up with that one? Wait…THAT’S NOT WILL FERRELL!

Andrew Ellard is my script editor on the IT Crowd and this weekend he wrote a very fine, very fair dissection of a lazy piece of TV journalism in the Telegraph. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably already seen it, but for those who don’t, here it is again. It’s quite brilliant.
What did the journalist in question think of it? “I can’t be bothered to read all that” she tweeted this morning.

Ireland’s Evening Herald published a hatchet job by Michael O’Doherty on Arthur and myself over Christmas. O’Doherty singled me out in particular but couldn’t work up the courage to tell his readers the real reason why. Truth is, I called them out for their shoddy journalism earlier in 2010 and he/they didnae like it! Waaaah!
Michael obviously holds a grudge, so you can expect to see my “it was our baby” quote again. It’s all the ammunition he has (this is the second time he’s trotted it out) and he needs something to write about. That ‘Model Loses Laptop’ story won’t keep paying off forever, after all.
Anyway, that’s more than enough time spent on the matter. So as to not further bore everyone with this spat, I’ll concede the floor, permanently. Michael, knock yourself out, you’re on your own.
