Six Brits Stuff Feet Into Mouths

What happens when six British journalists get into a lift at the David Letterman show for the appearance of UK Prime Minister David Cameron?

Something rather embarrassing, actually.

David Usborne, U.S. Editor of The Independent, revealed on Twitter Wednesday that “Six Brit journalist in a lift at Letterman asking who the f– is Jonny Lee Miller other guest with Cam? Man in lift with them – Jonny. Oops.”

The Guardian‘s U.S. Editor-in-Chief Janine Gibson wrote Usborne a sharp-tongued reaction to the incident, saying,  “I hope he said: ‘I used to be married to Angelina fucking Jolie. LOSERS.’”

We can’t definitively name names yet except one — Usborne –  but possible U.K. journos on that elevator include: Michael Savage of The Times, James Kirkup of the Daily Telegraph, and Andrew Woodcock, political editor of the Press Association. They were all here visiting from the UK and covered the Letterman show that night.
