Stephen Colbert: Would you like a glass of Truthiness with your meal, sir? Wicked scoop from FishbowlDC: Stephen Colbert will headline the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner this April, no doubt bringing his Canada-love and AP-hate to the podium. P.S. Fishbowl was first to note the AP omission. Can we come to the dinner? [FBDC]
For the love of God, put this man on Jeopardy! Frequent-flyer/MB contributor Greg Lindsay writes 4,431 words about know-it-alls Ken Jennings (Jeopardy) and Kevin Olmstead (Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?), doesn’t even mentionPeter Rubin and A.J. Jacobs. A travesty! [BlackTable]
Hell hath no fury like an Oprah scorned: Salon‘s Hillary Frey is no relation to James, who was the target of a very public flogging, flaying, and flagellating. Upshot: Hermès had it easy. [Salon]
Can it be that it was all so simple then, or has time rewritten every line? If the Black Table had the chance to do it all again, would they? Could they?

Unintentional blog synchronicity: Today’s Media Minutiae posts have each featured a travesty. Which is worse, the non-Nick Burns shaving story or the non-Rubin/Jacobs know-it-all story? Fishbowl cares about your opinion (especially yours, nice Anonymous Tipster!).
