Angie is a big ol' hypocrite



Tbdangie061507 Angelina Jolie may be starring in a movie that champions journalistic integrity, but while promoting A Mighty Heart this week she got awfully Ministry of Propaganda on everyone.

When Jolie banned FOX News from the premiere, she had her lawyer hand out contracts for every journalist wanting to interview her to sign that read “the interview may only be used to promote the Picture. In no event may Interviewer or Media Outlet be entitled to run all or any portion of the interview in connection with any other story. ... The interview will not be used in a manner that is disparaging, demeaning, or derogatory to Ms. Jolie.” What fun is that?

Well, USA Today and the AP promptly canceled their interviews, moving Angie shut down all print interviews — at a benefit for Reporters Without Borders! Not too cool for a woman with “Know your rights” tattooed on her back.
