The New York Observer, a publication which really enjoys a good media power list here and there, has a new one out today. It’s “The Free Agent List: 2011’s 50 Most Eligible Media Bachelors.” Look, there’s poor Brian Stelter on the front, kissing a black hole where his girlfriend used to be. Fifty strapping young (or not very young at all) media guys, just ripe for the taking, ladies. Julia Allison is studying the list carefully. Except some of them are not ripe for the taking, because some of them are not single. Oops. After the jump, the mistakes that we managed to find.
At first, we surmised that the Observer doesn’t contact people before putting them in these slideshows. It’s got to be a lot easier to populate a list like this with unknowing subjects. But according to one singleton on the list who didn’t want to be named, they did email him (although he says he never really consented). He had nothing to say except, “Forever Alone.”
Either way, the only mistakes we could pin down were those listed above. If you think of more, do let us know in the comments.
