LAT In 90 Seconds

39157689-23042055.jpgCredit Where Credit Is Due: The LAT reports that John McCain repudiated John Hagee‘s endorsement after the pastor’s outrageous comments about Adolph Hitler “turned up recently on the Internet.” But the paper of record did not give credit to the Huffington Post. Don’t worry. They’re taking care of that just fine themselves.

39135423-22162403.jpgWhy Tina Daunt Is Better Than Us: Tina Daunt was able to write this about John Cusack: “The 42-year-old actor-writer-director said recently in an interview at his Venice production office… ‘They are hollowing out the very core function of what it means to be a government.’” Us? We would have written: “John Cusack is saying a bunch of stuff … while we’re sitting in his office! We should be listening, but we’re trying to decide: Should we ‘accidentally’ leave behind our black lace panties with our phone number embroidered on them in his car or on his desk?”

39135426-22161510.jpgApparently The LAT Missed Us: Why else would they greet us back to this blessed City of Angels with not one, but two excuses to run John Cusack‘s picture? (And one of them being a Carina Chocano review to boot!) Thank you, Russ Stanton!
