Submission + - HBO vetoes Diebold's documentary request

mikesd81 writes: "The Hollywood reporter reports that Diebold is trying to get HBO to stop producing a Documentary on the company called "Hacking Democracy". Diebold is saying that the documentary is filled with inaccuracies, yet they haven't seen the movie yet. The points they used actually refer to a different movie, "Voter Gate". Diebold claims it's produced by the same company, but it's not."

Submission + - Tutor Turtle REALLY Said "Help! Mr. Wizard!

Richard Pfeiffer writes: "This isn't a story submission, it's a correction.

Tennessee Tuxedo did NOT say "Help Mr. Wizard!", as is incorrectly asserted at the bottom of this page as I write this.

First of all, it's "Help! Mr. Wizard!" (Note extra punctuation.)

Second of all, it was Tutor Turtle who said this, as demonstrated by the fact that Mr. Wizard would then intervene in Tutor's desperate situation by saying something like:

"Trizzle, trazzle, trozzle, trome.
Time for Tutor to come home."

I just wanted to set the record straight and vindicate poor Tennessee Tuxedo's good name."
