Aaron Sorkin: LA Times Not Sufficiently Fawning, Bloggers Not Worthy

Ass.jpg

Aaron Sorkin is displeased with the LA Times. Maria Elena Fernandez, Scott Collins, and Deborah Netburn dared write in a critical way about Studio 60. Sorkin recounts their misdeeds to Shelley Gabert from Film Stew, as well as dozens of others on the TCA press tour. He doesn’t actually call for them to be horse-whipped, but maybe there’s a follow-up coming.

Netburn made the fatal error of asking other writers about Studio 60, and not all of them were Sorkin’s A-list buddies. Some of them were unemployed, and thus, not worthy to touch the hem of his garment. He should be glad Netburn didn’t ask some of his pals from rehab.

He also was distressed that Bill Carter in the NY Times had quoted bloggers, saying:

We live in the age of amateurs, and we can all go on the Internet and find people to say mean things about any show, But everybody’s voice ought not to be equal.

What a tool. FBLA wonders if there’s a secret test you have to pass to watch the show. Some pigs are more equal than others.
