Paramount Pictures chairman Brad Grey has little to fear from that upcoming John Connolly piece about the Anthony Pellicano wiretapping mess in an upcoming Vanity Fair, according to L.A. Indie ‘s Ross Johnson. “Grey, who hired Pellicano and frequently dropped by [his] office, is probably resting a little easier today,” Johnson begins. “Vanity Fair‘s June issue was put to bed yesterday [Thursday, 6.20]. Our spies at the magazine say that Grey, a friend of Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, got the velvet glove treatment in the Pellicano piece. Grey’s corporate overlord, Viacom’s Sumner Redstone, has not taken kindly to Grey being the proverbial one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest. Redstone’s warlords have been badgering the N.Y. Times to let up on the Grey-Pellicano story, and Redstone’s footsoldiers at the Viacom-owned Simon & Schuster book publisher have also stepped up.”
