Ignorant Slut Update

April 3, 2005 at 2:24 pm (Pop Culture on Parade, WTF)

No, this isn’t another LN rant, although I’m very overdue and she’s really dug her own grave this time…but I’ll get to that once I have two minutes to rub together. This is an update on Fox 2 Detroit’s showing American Idol contestant Mikaylah Gordon alone on stage BEFORE the announcement that she was leaving the show.

First, the email I wrote:

comment: Are you aware that the promo you showed two commercial breaks before the American Idol winner was announced SHOWED this week’s departing ontestant, Mikaylah Gordon, singing alone onstage while wearing the outfit she had on tonight? That’s got to be the biggest screw-up you’ve come up with yet. Showing the departing AI contestant, DURING the airing of the show (a supposedly LIVE one), in what was obviously her last AI appearance?
I sure would love to hear from you about this.

In the interest of fairness and knowing that this blog’s high on Google’s hit list for the name “Mikaylah Gordon,” I’m posting the reply I received from Fox 2 Detroit’s webmaster:
