New York Times’ Bloggers Are On The Pulse

Three days before the 2010 Golden Globes, Dexter star Michael C. Hall announced that he had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and had successfully undergone treatment. A blogger for The Moment, the New York Times’ style blog, tweeted this on the night of the Golden Globes:
“Is Michael C. Hall playing Bob Marley in an upcoming movie? Don’t get the hat or what he is hiding under it.”
Tweet FAIL. Us Magazine reports:
The “Moment” blogger eventually realized the unfortunate oversight with a red-faced Tweet: “So sorry that Michael C. Hall has had cancer. Thanks for clarifying why he is wearing a knitted skull cap.”
Man, I’m glad he got to the bottom of this, because we all know that bloggers usually get their information by carrier pigeon. Hopefully somebody told him why Brittany Murphy didn’t show up or why the interview questions he had for Michael Landon might not get to be used.
