Just to let the world know…
The Reality Rumble Survivor vs. ANTM piece in Vulture has my byline, but is mostly not at all my actual writing or ideas. In case you cared.

“It was entirely rewritten except for a paragraph and some sentence fragments,” writes Andy Dehnart. He also tells me: “I tweeted to make sure people knew that the writing and arguments–while all very good!–weren’t mine, but mostly because I felt weird and bad about having someone else’s work attributed to me.”
Vulture’s spokesperson says they have no comment.

Update: My Facebook friends have stories to tell about editing and being edited. One writes: “We should be grateful there are still editors who take pride in their publications and work to improve what appears there.”
