Everyone else was doing it, so I'm starting a thread here. :P

I felt weird posting this on the main board, but I wanted to show you guys the response I got from the editor of the dumbass who did the fake interview with Jemaine.


Hi Katie,

My name is Mike Nelson; I’m Prairie’s editor.

Thank you very much for the heads up on this matter. Allow me to explain what occurred: Prairie attended a round-table discussion—wherein the actor meets with numerous press sources at one sitting, and all the press are cleared to use all the quotes from that joint interview. This is not “exclusive” material, and oftentimes, numerous news organs will rely on one set of quotes for stories on an individual source, just as they would with any press conference.

In this case, Prairie spliced together several round-table discussion she had done with Jemaine, one from 2007, because the Gentleman Bronco Q&A offered limited access to Jemaine. We should have made it clear in the introductory section that this was how the piece had been constructed.

As for the misspelling of Jemaine’s name, that is a copyediting oversight on my part, and it is inexcusable.

Again, I appreciate you reading the piece and taking the time to voice your concerns.

Thanks!

Sincerely,

Mike Nelson
Managing Editor
Long Island Press

Hardly any of that interview was about Gentlemen Broncos, so if she really was at any roundtable discussions, they are all old ones that had nothing to do with GB. And the interview from January 2007 was an email interview done by a blogger, and it was definitely not a roundtable discussion. I emailed that girl too. She thought it was funny.

I love the thread name! [image]

(But never "cut it out"! [image] )



Yea, I call bologna. Especially since the "interview" is now pulled, right?


Top notch work, Detective Katie! [image]

Fun Fact: They're listed on FOTC's myspace under Influences. ;D (not saying that's how Katie heard of them)

This was the video she showed me that made me go [image] :



p.s. they're Norwegian! :D

Some friends introduced me to them a few years ago. I was very happy when I saw them on FOTC's list of influences. [image]

Their new album is called Declaration of Dependence and I love it. [image] [image] [image] Do you have it yet, Jess?

Here's a cute interview with one of the guys on some of his favorite things: http://pitchfork.com/features/guest-lists/7722-kings-of-convenience/
