When U. of Iowa journalism professor Stephen G. Bloom and a Cinema & Comp Lit prof tangled over whom to get as the speaker for a building dedication, the lit. prof nixes Bob Woodward for "Sy Hershman." Bloom then goes berserk on her in his essay for getting Seymour Hersh's name wrong... except, according to Brian Montopoli: "In a piece in which you're mocking a colleague for getting the name of a famous journalist wrong, it's a good idea not to get the names of two other famous journalists wrong." (Romenesko)
