Whoops! Lawrence O’Donnell Flubs Corn’s Title

While much of Washington knows that Melinda Henneberger’s Politics Daily got eaten by HuffPost in the merger with AOL, word apparently hasn’t reached New York.

On MSNBC’s “Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” Tuesday night, O’Donnell ended a segment with Mother Jones Washington Bureau Chief David Corn by reeling off his title: “Washington Editor of Mother Jones, Politics Daily Columnist and MSNBC Analyst, David Corn, thank you for joining us.” Corn thanked O’Donnell in return and didn’t note the correction. No doubt, that would have been awkward.

Later in the program, O’Donnell got it right with former Politics Daily White House Correspondent Alex Wagner, who now works for HuffPost.
