A scoop on the first day of the Public Eye:Jon Healy, the paper’s editorial writer,” who is the person who was asked to “get angry” on CNN last week.

“Here’s what happened, according to Healy: He had earlier penned an unsigned editorial for the Times critical of the response to Katrina. A producer from Paula Zahn Now — Healy doesn’t remember her name — called and asked if the author would appear on the show; Healy agreed. Roughly an hour before Healy’s appearance, he got another call from the producer. He wasn’t sure of her exact words, but he said the gist was ‘I know this is going to sound tacky, but when you’re on the show, could you be angry?'”

Public Eye has the rest…
