Watch the beginning angry tones of a wire service flack, Paul Colford, hunting down Andrew Kirell, the madman who wrote the story

Kirell is the editor-in-chief of Mediaite. Let’s see if we can find an address for him without tweeting at him.

Perhaps it’s on the masthead? Colford, please see the “About Us” section on Mediaite. Click here where you’ll find Kirell and his email address.

Full disclosure: I once brawled with Colford over the phone. He wrote me an email demanding I call him. So I did. And then, after a stern back and forth, he demanded that I give him my cell phone number. I refused. I said I will not give my cell phone to someone who is obviously angry at me. Hope all is well Paul! Let’s do lunch.

Asked if they’d be changing anything, Kirell explained that Colford actually didn’t want anything changed. He wanted to provide a comment. It was added an hour ago.
