Gibson &#151 Fanged Or Defanged? New York Mag Not Quite Sure

As we noted last week, New York magazine’s Joe Hagan, he of the “something of a snake” camp according to Charles Gibson, has penned another Gibson-themed piece for the magazine. This time, though, the press release “dek” differs ever-so-slightly from the piece on the New York site.

The press release:

Charlie the Conqueror by Joe Hagan
While Diane Sawyer waffled about taking over as the ABC evening-news anchor and the pregnant Elizabeth Vargas tried to hang on to it, her formally avuncular co-host Charlie Gibson showed his fangs, swooped in and seized the throne for himself.

The actual piece:

Charlie the Conqueror
While Diane Sawyer waffled about taking over as the ABC evening-news anchor and the pregnant Elizabeth Vargas tried to hold on to it, her formally avuncular Good Morning America co-host Charles Gibson swooped in and seized the throne for himself.

Funny how a depiction of Gibson with “fangs” — last we checked, an attribute of snakes — might end up being omitted.
