Connolly: A face “like a crushed Pabst can,” but a heart of gold?

LA Indie creator Ross Johnson today offers a spirited defense of Vanity Fair‘s John Connolly – you know, the “Irish-American ‘reporter’ with the face of a crushed Pabst can” who wrote the Anthony Pellicano piece published a week ago and pilloried by all its principal subjects.

Or, as Ross puts it, “Within a day, Hollywood’s code-three publicist army spit mouthfuls of Perrier all over the Pellicano piece.”

It’s in Movie City News, worth a look, especially if your name is Graydon Carter.

(Meanwhile, the LAT reminds us: Pellicano was both a stalker and a jerk.)
