You can call me Mr. Steve Martin
A couple of weeks ago, comedian, author, and guy who can do anything, Steve Martin, apparently sent out a racist Tweet. As such things happen, he was quickly called on it,and he apologized after deleting the Tweet. I was in Indiana at the time and didn't delve deep into it, but I was certainly disappointed in Steve Martin.
Now the full story has come out. The staff at Salon.com, who started the outrage, turned what was actually NOT a racist Tweet from Steve Martin into a racist Tweet by CHANGING THE WORDS in their article. Yikes. Nothing like a misquote to ruin your reputation.
For the full story, check this out from Bob Cesca.
