"... better in my imagination."

I tried like heck to find the original clip -- for full context -- but couldn't, so Talk Soup's clip will have to do.



Wesley Morris is a film critic for the Boston Globe, and he appeared on MSNBC because he had just seen Hound Dog's premiere at Sundance.

Now, granted, the anchor's question did not specifically reference the scene depicting child rape. His reply didn't either.

But WE know and THEY know and EVERYONE knows MSNBC had him on due to the controversy of exactly that scene. It wasn't news otherwise.

I would even give the critic the benefit of the doubt and assume he meant to say, "It's better left to the imagination," rather than, "It was better in my imagination." But I don't think he'd get such leniency from most parents, child advocates, religious leaders, etc.

So dude: IT'S LIVE TV. WATCH YOUR WORDS.

ouch... that was just not right. sucks to be him? altho i'm sure this interview will be funny/embarrassing for a week and then something else equally embarrassing will happen, and this will all be forgotten.
