Larry Johnson, real class act

Here is a cached version of a post Larry made on Wednesday. He had basically accused Peter Lance of only winning two Emmy awards instead of five, without checking all the facts first. His response to finding out that he was wrong? Try to hide the evidence.

Peter Lance does indeed have 5 Emmy Awards. He was awarded 3 National Emmy Awards -- the 2 our database indicated, plus an additional 1 for Community and Public Service for a campaign on WABC. The database lists just the sponsor of the campaign WABC; but the Emmy Award goes to the producer, who in this case was Peter Lance. In addition, Peter Lance has won two Emmys from the New York Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, which I have verified with them.

We would appreciate your correcting this information on your website immediately.

He has since deleted the post, and does not have any clarification on his website, despite the fact the false information is still available for download on his site.
