The New York Times Suggests Whoopi Goldberg Slight the Product of Poor Reading

whoopigoldberg120.jpgAs Louis deduced on Monday, it turns out the whole "Whoopi Goldberg was snubbed by the New York Times in their piece about African-American Oscar winners!" controversy was nothing more than a case of bad reading comprehension. "The error lies with those who are reading the story incorrectly," wrote a spokesperson for the Times in an e-mail to EW. "The point of the piece was not to name every black actor or actress who has been awarded an Oscar, it was to draw a comparison between the number who won prior to 2002 (the year Halle Berry and Denzel Washington won) and those who have won since." No word yet on whether Elisabeth Hasselbeck will renew her subscription to the Gray Lady. [EW]
