AP Report Mistakes Walken Impression On Tony Kornheiser's Show For The Real Thing
November 21, 2011 at 4:01 AM (PT)
An ASSOCIATED PRESS report was pulled from the wire FRIDAY after it was determined that a reporter had mistaken a CHRISTOPHER WALKEN impersonator on TONY KORNHEISER's RED ZEBRA Sports WTEM-A (ESPN 980)/WASHINGTON show for the real thing.
The report included comments by "WALKEN" (in reality, producer MARC "NIGEL" STERNE, who regularly does a WALKEN impression on KORNHEISER's show) about the reopening of the investigation into the death of NATALIE WOOD in 1981. AP pulled the report an hour after it was released on the wire.
