2 Stations Get Wrong Guy When Booking Super Bowl Press Conference Crasher
February 10, 2014 at 4:52 AM (PT)
Two radio stations contacted the wrong guy when they tried to book the 9/11 "truther" who crashed SUPER BOWL MVP MALCOLM SMITH's postgame press conference, according to an interview with the "wrong MATTHEW MILLS" posted by NEW YORK PUBLIC RADIO News-Talk WNYC-A-F/NEW YORK's "ON THE MEDIA" TLDR podcast.
The "wrong" MILLS, a film producer. changed his FACEBOOK photo to the more infamous MILLS' picture as a joke, but several people mistook him for the interrupter. MILLS told TLDR's PJ VOGT that CBS RADIO News-Talk WCCO-A/MINNEAPOLIS' KYLE SHIELY, producer for JOHN HINES' show, called and asked if he was the 9/11 truther MATTHEW MILLS, and he responded, "I am MATTHEW MILLS."
That was enough to get him on the air with HINES, and while posing as the truther, he said he felt "a little bit guilty," finally admitting that he was not the right guy. An hour later, GREATER MEDIA Sports WMGC (DETROIT SPORTS 105.1)/DETROIT called, and MILLS described the producer as "really aggressive"; this time, MILLS played it out for about 10 minutes while "they asked the most inane questions," he said. He said he didn't feel too bad for the WMGC hosts because nobody asked him if he was the SUPER BOWL press conference-interrupting MATTHEW MILLS.
