“View” Co-Host Angry W/ New York Times
Whoopi Goldberg ripped the New York Times on “The View” for what she called “sloppy Journalism’ in their failure to mention her in an article about black Oscar winners.
“I am embarrassed to tell you it hurt me terribly,” Goldberg said Monday on “The View.” “When you win an Academy Award, that’s part of what you’ve done, your legacy. I will always be Academy Award-winner Whoopi Goldberg.”
Goldberg said she was “dismissed and erased” by the Times’ top film critics and described the piece as “sloppy journalism.” And to settle any doubts whether she’s an Academy Award-winner, Goldberg pulled out her Oscar for the 1990 film “Ghost.” To see the video, click here : http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_thecutline/20110214/bs_yblog_thecutline/whoopi-golberg-slams-ny-times-for-sloppy-journalism
