Awards gadfly Tom O'Neil wasted little time exploiting Tina Fey's indictment of his site's anonymous, comedienne-slagging commenters at last night Golden Globes, nearly tripping over his clown shoes backstage to grovel for forgiveness.

We pass O'Neil's spineless self-defense on to you without comment — except of course for the requisite disclaimer that he does not speak on our behalf. And that we hope contrite Los Angeles Times representatives will soon arrive at our doors to apologize for O'Neil's continued, unchecked awards-season terrorism. No camera necessary.
