Ken Jennings = smart. Michael Starr, AP = stupid [updated x2]

Remember that satirical Dear Jeopardy letter that Ken Jennings wrote and I linked? Here's AP's headline: 'Jeopardy' Champ Ken Jennings Blasts Show. Unless they're doing satire themselves...

I'm afraid they're probably not, though. Turns out Michael Starr at the New York Post 'broke' this nonstory.

I know that because I went over to see if Ken had a comment. He does. I can't tell if he knows AP, including US News and World Report, have 'picked up' the 'story', so I'm writing him now...

Stupid nonnews...

[Update: Only an injustice this great could bring me out of retirement on MetaFilter!]

[Update 2: Jaq picked up the story, too.]
