Not hacked: C-SPAN apologizes for ‘unfortunate posting of content’


C-SPAN says it was not hacked (I wondered yesterday if someone there was enjoying a little too much holiday bubbly), but that “our policy of using current nonfiction book titles verbatim in our schedule led to the unfortunate posting of content some might find offensive on We apologize for that and are taking steps to prevent it from happening again.”

D.L. Hughley’s “I Want You to Shut the F#ck Up” — seen on the left image — came out last July, and Kevin Mattson’s Richard Nixon book, “Just Plain Dick,” was published in September.
