EW Slaps Warner Bros. With Year-End Cover

Excerpt from I’ll Replace You (2008)

Remember back in August when Warner Bros. announced that the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was being moved from November 2008 to July 2009? And then, hilariously, Entertainment Weekly's Fall Preview issue hit newsstands the next day featuring a Harry Potter cover since nobody at WB bothered to tell anyone at EW — with whom they share a parent company — about the delay? EW was pissed at the time, but waited until now say something, hiding this dig on the subscribers-only cover of its new "Best & Worst of 2008" issue (the newsstand cover just features a huge picture of that guy from Twilight again).
