Yesterday, The Wrap posted a story crowing about “The Voice” losing half its audience in its second night against “American Idol.”Only problem was, that airing was actually a repeat — which means if anything, “The Voice” gained viewers.
Now NBC is slamming the site — which also sent out a breaking news alert featuring its misleading story — and other journalists are joining in.
The Daily Beast’s Kate Aurthur suggested The Wrap may not know what a repeat is.
We think it’s more likely they didn’t bother to figure out that the show wasn’t live. Either way, “The Voice” wins — both in the ratings and because of the free publicity bump The Wrap ended up giving them.
