20/20 Story POSTPONED, again

The waiting is the hardest part

The waiting is the hardest part

Just heard that the 20/20 story has been postponed. This may not be news to you all, but I’ve been away from the Internets for a bit. Anyway, I’ll let you know when it will run as soon as I know.

About David Futrelle

I run the blog We Hunted the Mammoth, which tracks (and mocks) online misogyny. My writing has appeared in a wide variety of places, including Salon, Time.com, the Washington Post, the New York Times Book Review and Money magazine. I like cats.

  1. Sorry about that jerk of a priest Cloudiah!

    That otter is the cutest!!

  2. Awww, thank you! (The Kittehs’ Unpaid Help was my old handle.)

    I’m reading the thread where all this got started – such a laugh!

  3. It’ sitter oh It’s otterly adorable with that little tongue!

    (Oh come one, someone had to say it)

  4. How did I…?

    “It’ sitter oh” should be crossed out, as part of my continued quest to show you what autocorrect is doing to me. The rest should just be words. I guess I opened an italics and then closed a delete?

  5. Can you turn autocorrect off? It’s out to get you!

  6. Yes, but my spelling is horrendous, so usually it’s a blessing. iOS 7 is out to get me, not autocorrect.

  7. It should be easy. I accidentally shut mine off and I can’t get it back.

  8. And crocodiles are misandry.

    I actually found this disturbing because it rings so true in this context, and by “this context” I mean the manosphere bullying everyone.

  9. Argenti – your spelling might be horrendous, but it couldn’t be worse than reading autocorrect’s efforts, going “wtf?” and having to read it again to piece together what it’s saying!😀

  10. Shaun — it’s hiding under general => keyboard.

    Kitteh — I just need to pay more attention to what it spits out.

  11. I think it’s in cahoots with the grammar check on Word. Never seen such an abomination as that.

  12. Was just looking at the (mostly uneventful) AVFM forum thread on the 20/20 thing. Some of them apparently think ABC used editing tricks to “Hobbitize” Elam — ie, make him look short.


  13. Oh, and conspiracy theories aside, it looks like the show was delayed because the episode that aired tonight was originally scheduled to run earlier, but was delayed due to breaking news.

    Not sure why they didn’t announce this sooner, but whatev.


  14. Right. That answers the question I was about to ask: why the delay?

  15. I’m a little disappointed from the preview that they weren’t using the most egregious examples from the MRM; indeed that did actually take a quote from Elam where he was giving an example of a comment he was banning. It doesn’t look good.

    Anyways, I’m still over in the comment section posting as many awful quotes from the man-o-sphere as a I possibly can to counter-act the swarm of MRAs that have taken over and are attempting to wheedle the public. They are truly shameless liars.

  16. And just wanted to say @neuroticbeagle, your videos and pictures always brighten my day.

    Thank you. You’re comment made me feel warm and fuzzy like this:

  17. Is John the Otter gay? I just learned about the “otter” category for gay men, basically a guy with a swimmer’s bod but hairy.

  18. For cloudiah. That priest was a real jerkface, a fobbing, guts-griping canker-blossom.

    Also, re: Hobbit Elam, CANNOT UNSEE. What’s his hobbit name, I wonder? I bet he’s a Sackville-Baggins.

  19. @Kittehs,

    The Mister’s good, he fixed my aching neck this morning.🙂

    That’s kind of amazing, actually. Can you feel him touching you when you’re on this side, or did he give you a massage Over There and it translated into your physical body?

    I realize I’m both asking a lot of questions and making a few assumptions. If I’m over the line, I’m sure you’ll let me know 😉

  20. David – Hobbits are misandry! *nod*

  21. Auggz — it’s John the Other technically. Someone here misread it as John the Otter. So no, that sort of otter has nothing to do with it.

  22. BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
