Sam Biddle is tardy

Yesterday (Friday, June 28th), Sam Biddle wrote about AOL's open casting call for an online news host. He included the video of a woman giving an awkward audition, and he made a few other snippy remarks.  Then at the bottom, Biddle wrote:
If you're interested in maybe humiliating yourself on the internet for $700 (really not a bad deal at all), here are the details:
     
Thursday, June 27 and Friday, June 28, 2013
Casting location - 770 Broadway in Manhattan.  (Enter East 9th Street between Broadway and 4th Avenue)
5 AM Casting Call opens
10 AM Casting Call closes
The post went up on Valleywag at 10:41 A.M., or a full 41 minutes after the casting call had already closed.

So what even was the point?  By comparison, when PCMag wrote about the casting calls, they had enough common sense to post it on June 27th.
