Variety‘s Dave McNary wrote this morning about screenwriter Larry Karaszewski (The People Vs. Larry Flynt, Ed Wood) having “made a major fashion statement” outside Paramount Studios with a red T-shirt emblazoned with a reprint of a recent LA Times story headlined: “Viacom profit shoots up 80%.”

Fine, very clever, typical Karaszewski move . But why didn’t McNary’s story have a photo of Karaszewski’s actual T-shirt (i.e., with Karaszewksi wearing it) instead of a fake Photoshop simulation, and a simulation of a female T-shirt at that? If Karaszewski writes or calls, I’ll meet him tomorrow (or whenever) down at the Paramount gate with my camera and I’ll show Dave McNary how it’s done.
