Pellicano blow-back?

Nikki Finke claims to have knowledge of a behind-the-scene legal tussle between the Gray Lady and the Grey Man – aka Paramount chairman Brad Grey.

Writes Finke, “I have learned from New York Times sources that Viacom Inc.’s general counsel has sent the paper a toughly worded letter fat with attachments refuting large portions and many details of that March 13th Page One story loosely linking Paramount boss Brad Grey to Anthony Pellicano.”

Is a clarification in the offing? A correction? A retraction?

We’re fascinated. Stay tuned.
