NYC-TV Get’s LAT’s OK

For some unknown reason, the LA Times editors think a story about NYC-TV, the city gov’t channel, is a Politics:National story. Writing about Kelly Choi, the hottie host of Secrets of New York, Erika Hayasaki claims:

Choi has become a New York icon, with bloggers obsessed with finding hidden messages in her jewelry. (Playing to her fans, producers once scanned a code from “The Matrix” onto one of her chokers.)

There’s no evidence that many bloggers are obsessed with Choi or her jewelry, outside of a few Gothamist commenters a year ago. Jill Gardner, whose NY Sun piece must have been handy background, was a little less dramatic:

Her spiky high-heeled boots, cinched black coat, and regularly rotating jewelry are so carefully watched by fans that the producers had a code from “The Matrix” scanned onto one of her chokers.

Maybe the Times editors were sending a secret message of their own to the dismal local channel, LA36, which brings new meaning to the word unwatchable.
