Arsenio Hall is a late-night guy too! He corrects the Times and NBC

Arsenio Hall is a late-night TV host. Can I repeat that? Arsenio Hall is a late night TV host. There...at least I'm absolved. But not the New York Times or NBC News. Last night, Arsenio went after -- good-naturedly, but with definite bite -- the fact that both NBC and the Times completely ignored him in their outtakes on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." Not a mention. Not a word. Not a...well, not an anything. 

  [And this late breaking omission news: Brian Williams corrected NBC's Arsenio omission on Wednesday's 'Nightly News" by noting that once New Hampshire was dropped from the US map in a report; oh,and that "Philadelpia" was misspelled. And for the record, Pete Holmes was ignored too in NBC's earlier Fallon story, as Williams noted.]

Hall says he doesn't even care if anyone uses a photo -- or "use Laurence Fishburne's photo..." instead. (Great line; I guess we all know that story, right?) But just mention him, at the very least.

 (Did I already mention? Arsenio Hall is a late-night host and you can see him every  night, weeknights anyway, on WPIX/11... )

Meanwhile, he says he doesn't want to be "the angry black man," and instead has someone else do the anger for him...

  Watch this clip. Arsenio definitely has a point, by the way. That point is, he's right.
