Why do you think Clooney is doing by talking to DL? Setting the record straight = damage control.

Posted by: Antibody on Oct 23, 13:01 in response to RotoHockeyYTD2013's post Please do tell where the phrase 'Damage Control' appears...

It's only in your mind that the headline needs to be verbatim down to the EXCLUSIVE.

There's no such rule.

DL: Clooney damage control [MONUM] had a really good test last week, scoring in the mid 80s. Studio wanted to move the release date UP.   Antibody on Oct 23, 12:31

I wouldn't use the term Damage Control, that would indicate something was wrong with the movie, which there doesn't seem to be. {nm}   austpow on Oct 23, 12:40

The damage was created by The Crap. {nm}   doitdoitdoitnow on Oct 23, 12:41

Clooney wouldn't personally call Fleming if he didn't feel something was wrong. {nm}   Antibody on Oct 23, 13:05

Horrible & False Headline Posting with the phrase 'Damage Control' - not in the DLH Headline, not in the DLH Article. {nm}   RotoHockeyYTD2013 on Oct 23, 12:50

Pot, meet kettle. {nm}   PVL Admin on Oct 23, 13:04

PDFTT, thanks {nm}   RogerMore on Oct 23, 13:05

Your Headline should be Scrubbed and redone properly. {nm}   RotoHockeyYTD2013 on Oct 23, 12:51

I always post what's in the actual article, not ape the headline spin by DL. {nm}   Antibody on Oct 23, 12:53

Please do tell where the phrase 'Damage Control' appears in the DLH Article. {nm}   RotoHockeyYTD2013 on Oct 23, 12:57

By Posting 'DL:' you gave everybody the impression that DLH used that phrase. They didn't. False Posting. {nm}   RotoHockeyYTD2013 on Oct 23, 13:04

Where are the quotation marks? {nm}   socby19 on Oct 23, 13:33

please don't speak for the community {nm}   lapuckfan on Oct 23, 16:17

If you want to express your opinion that it is 'Damage Control', fine. But make it your opinion, not the DLH Headline. {nm}   RotoHockeyYTD2013 on Oct 23, 13:05

You read it as the DL headline because you only post headlines. I always put as much info as I can in my headline. {nm}   Antibody on Oct 23, 13:08

Your legal counsel can tell you that the phrase 'Damage Control' is scandalous & scurrilous.   RotoHockeyYTD2013 on Oct 23, 13:14

Yawn. {nm}   Antibody on Oct 23, 13:18

Too funny. Bet you would be a Hoot at an Examination For Discovery. {nm}   RotoHockeyYTD2013 on Oct 23, 14:52

After hearing both sides and weighing the evidence I rule in favor of the defendant. that Damage Control is a proper description {nm}   Judge Dredd on Oct 23, 15:43

It was never about whether it was a Proper Description - It was about the insertion into the DLH Headline.   RotoHockeyYTD2013 on Oct 23, 16:29

Could it be that DLH is just the source and he is not quoting them? I didn't see quotes. {nm}   socby19 on Oct 24, 11:56

Duh. He posts articles properly.   mysti HSX on Oct 23, 13:07

If they are making the fx, better I am glad they're waiting. The trailer looks good to me and I want a good film from this ensemble.. {nm}   tatoufan on Oct 23, 13:02

Y: "George Clooney sets record straight on tone-deaf journalists & why #MonumentsMen will open in Feb"   RazorHawk on Oct 23, 14:28

That's the same article. {nm}   Antibody on Oct 23, 15:25
