Scott Collins, the L.A. Times TV writer on book tour for Crazy Like a Fox: The Inside Story of How Fox News Beat CNN, shows up on the New York Post's gossip page today saying he was bumped from an appearance on Catherine Crier's show on Court TV. His take is that Crier's producers wanted him but that Turner Broadcasting, which has a stake in Court TV, blacklisted him. CNN is also shunning Collins' book, but according to the Page Six item, "he's gotten plenty of airtime on Fox News Channel, which has much higher ratings than Court TV and CNN combined. A rep for Court TV said Collins must be mistaken as 'there was never a booking and they didn't even have a discussion about his book.'"
Page Six also corrects its errant report on the wedding of New York TV figure Toni Senecal: "It turns out that the marrying priest was not a '3-foot-tall' dwarf after all, but the considerably taller Father Thomas Kallumady at Old St. Patrick's Cathedral on Mulberry Street."
