FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The following is a statement by Daniel Peres, editor-in-chief of Details magazine:

"Details magazine has learned that it was misled in relation to an article published in its August 2002 issue. The article, "Dudes Who Dish", which carried the byline of Kurt Andersen, was not, in fact, authored by him. Mr. Andersen had no involvement whatsoever in the preparation of the article. Details is actively investigating this matter and apologizes to Mr. Andersen and its readers for the publication of this article."

RELEASE
August 15, 2002- 6:00 p.m. EDT

The following is a statement by Kurt Andersen:

"I was shocked to learn a week ago that in its August issue Details magazine published an article, "Dudes Who Dish", under my byline. I did not write this article and had no role in its creation. The whole affair has been unsettling. I appreciate, however, that once Editor-in-Chief, Daniel Peres, became aware of this despicable act perpetrated against me and the magazine, Details responded swiftly and conscientiously to alert its readers and the public generally."
