There’ll always be a USA, British News department

Here in the UK, the death of actor Ian Richardson was headlined in such ways as “House of Cards actor dead at 72”.

On CNN, it was headlined ‘Actor in “Grey Poupon” ad dead at 72’. (Ian Richardson appeared in ads for Grey Poupon Dijon mustard in the United States).

O tempora! O mores!

(Note that CNN did talk mostly about Richardson’s Urquhart portrayal in House of Cards in the actual article–there is hope yet!)

    I regularly check out the Internet Movie Database. Some of the IMDb users were more knew more about Ina Richardson that the limited CNN headline writer.
