A few days ago, I made some pointed comments about Sean Penn (I called him a blithering idiot- which I still stand by), and then I linked him to a less than flattering piece from the Drudge Report. That piece was supposed to be a transcript, but as Avedon Carol has noticed, it bears no resemblance to the CNN transcript. In fact, you can’t even find where the Drudge snippet is supposed to be in the CNN transcript.
I have been informed by a reader that the Drudge transcript was a joke, poking fun at Penn’s speech patterns.
What gives, Drudge? CNN? I still think Penn is a useful idiot, and he has admitted as much, but this is nonsense. If anyone knows what is going on here, please email me, so if necessary, I can make the appropriate retraction.
