I had promised myself not to link to another Rosie story, but David Carr’s NY Times piece today is a classic.


Gruner & Jahr officials said Ms. O’Donnell was not the person she had played on TV and not the one they struck a deal with last year. They said that they teamed up with a talk show host who had a huge following of middle Americans who saw themselves in the sweet-as-pie television figure who had a visible crush on Tom Cruise. In less than a year, she had quit her talk show, announced she was a lesbian and said she was tired of acting nice all the time.
