If it’s on America’s most trusted news source, it must be true. Right?
Coincidentally, I haven’t been able to get any work done today, because I’ve been playing around with this CNN thing all day. Anyway, CNN is probably burying this story in the NY Post about CNN personality Richard Quest getting caught in Central Park with drugs in his pocket, a sex toy in his boot and a rope around his genitalia.
Quest’s lawyer, Alan Abramson, had a much more innocuous version of events.
“Mr. Quest didn’t realize that the park had a curfew,” Abramson said. He was simply “returning to his hotel with friends.”
At a hearing in Manhattan Criminal Court, Quest agreed to undergo six months of drug counseling in return for an “adjournment in contemplation of dismissal,” which means the misdemeanor charges against him will be dropped and the case sealed if he stays out of trouble and completes his drug program.
He was released with no bail after spending most of the day behind bars.
Abramson predicted after the hearing that “the case will be dismissed.” He declined to answer questions.
Quest, known for his hollering antics and stunts on the cable news network and its international counterpart, declined comment, as did a CNN spokeswoman.
Huh, not even sure what to say, but I’d sure love to read that headline.
