"Gutsy" is writing about a show you've never watched

From the AP re-cap of last night's Idol finals: "[Bice] later sang 'Inside Your Heaven,' a song Underwood had performed only minutes earlier. It was a gutsy choice, giving voters a chance to compare him directly with his competitor on the same song." That's from the AP Television writer. The writer. Who covers television. For the AP. But he doesn't know that both contestants always perform the same song -- specially written for the Finals -- because it will be the winner's first single. Not a big deal. Except that Idol's the one reason Fox will win sweeps.

How do I get that job?

I don't know. But you seem to have a genuine sense of humor and a knack for accuracy -- and those don't seem to be requirements for the position.
