Clooney Misrepresented by Arianna Huffington
George Clooney Misrepresented
Last week, The Huffington Post featured a blog submission purportedly written by the talented Oscar award winner and film director, George Clooney. It wasn't. As the stunned George Clooney later stated in a news conference, he shares the sentiments of the content of the blog and admitted to making some of the statements printed which proclaimed his liberal views. Specifically, Clooney did not actually write the blog, citing that he "did not know how a blog worked."
The Public Domain is a strange beast. Although George admitted to sharing the printed views and statements, Ms. Huffington, or make that Ms. BUFFington (Arianna has had some work?) as reported in the LA Times (3/16/06) by Elizabeth Snead, stated that approval came from Clooney's publicist, Stan Rosenfield, to "use his words in a blog" to run in the Huffington Post.
Well George, you did the right thing by zeroing in on the TRUTH and by pointing out that you simply just did not write the damn thing -- however much it preached to the choir! You must be an Irish Catholic and not a Protestant or a Scientologist. I am with you in solidarity on this one, George!!! If I were in Hollywood, I would haven taken you out for a corned beef and cabbage bash and toasted a green one to you! In fact, You have just earned a spot on 2Truthy's Official "You're Invited To My Party List"--
Most Truly Yours,
P.S. I sincerely do not believe Arianna meant to show any inconsideration over the blog incident. She has since removed it.http://www.nydailynews.com/news/gossip/story/400029p-338931c.html
