(featuring: Paul F. Tompkins & Patton Oswalt)
Before Laura Linney...there was Janie Haddad Tompkins.
A little known fact, Mrs. Haddad Tompkins was the original host of Masterpiece Classics (from 2011-2011) where she introduced everything from the burgeoning hit DOWNTON ABBEY to low-rated reruns of I, CLAUDIUS. Following some "creative differences" with PBS, Mrs. Haddad Tompkins was replaced, unceremoniously, by Laura Linney -- her PBS legacy lost to the world.
Several months ago, outtakes were leaked of Janie hosting Masterpiece Classic (seen HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KfQ2EjWRgA).
This current video shares the story of her plight. She has suffered a gross injustice at the hands of PBS, Laura Linney and the director in residence, Joel A. Spence. She has hired a lawyer to restore her to her rightful throne. Please share her plight by spreading the word about this SHOCKING TELL ALL VIDEO and help to #RehireJanie!!!
