To correct the misinformation which appeared in your Sept. 4 article on me ("Gossip Journalist Finds Himself at Center of Saga"), I am not now, nor have I ever been a "gossip journalist." In fact, I believe those two terms are mutually exclusive. I am, in fact, an investigative journalist and critic who was conducting an undercover investigation of the gossip media; i.e., the tabloids. Other than that bit of sloppiness (which was the fault, no doubt, of your headline writer and not the author of the piece)

Free-lance writer Stuart Goldman pleaded no contest Tuesday to three felony charges of illegally entering Fox Television's computer system and stealing story ideas planted by Los Angeles police in a sting operation. In a plea bargain presented by prosecutors and approved by Superior Court Judge Richard Neidorf, the 45-year-old self-proclaimed muckraker was placed on five years' probation and ordered to pay $90,000 in restitution, reduced to $12,000 with Fox's approval.

Federal prosecutors dropped charges Friday against a free-lance journalist who was arrested for allegedly trying to steal information from the computers of Fox Television's tabloid show "A Current Affair," but hours later he faced similar "computer hacking" charges in state court. Stuart Goldman, 44, pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Los Angeles Municipal Court and was released on his own recognizance.

A free-lance journalist who had worked briefly for the television news tabloid "A Current Affair" has been charged by authorities in New York and Los Angeles with attempting to steal sensitive information from the network's computers in those cities. Stuart Goldman, 44, was arraigned in federal court in Los Angeles on Friday, a day after police searched his Studio City apartment and confiscated his personal computer and floppy disks.

He was brash, controversial. As a writer he liked to incite anger--to "twist the knife," as he put it, in vitriolic free-lance columns for the National Review attacking feminists, gays and other targets. And increasingly, Stuart Goldman gravitated to investigative journalism; he went undercover to research widely seen exposes of a TV evangelist and, later, an alleged UFO cult.

In a city composed of the most hard-working and talented people on the entertainment globe, it is a sin that Calendar persists and insists on devoting precious space to unguided, confused and violent souls whose only claim to fame is committing grisly--albeit imaginative--crimes ("TV Addict's Grim Legend on the Bayou," by Stuart Goldman, Sept. 8). Andy Warhol's said that in the future everyone will be famous for 15 minutes. It's horrific to watch Calendar actualize his prediction.

On Sept. 8 in Calendar, there was a lengthy article regarding a man accused of killing several people in the South who had an obsession with Olivia Newton-John ("TV Addict's Grim Legend on the Bayou," by Stuart Goldman). I can only say that I did not pick up the Calendar section of The Times to read such tripe. That section of the paper I believed to be an entertainment part of the paper. The article was depressing, macabre and loathsome--why write about this man at all? Why in the entertainment section of the paper?

ALBERTA HUNTER "My Castle's Rockin' " View/Video ($29.95) * * * * This is history. Seldom has so much material by and about an artist been crammed into a single hour. The basic footage stems from Alberta Hunter's legendary comeback in 1977, when at age 82--and after 20 years in obscurity working as a nurse--she returned to singing, primarily at the Cookery nightclub in New York, where this video's performance tracks were filmed.

Stuart Goldman's "Alberta Hunter: My Castle's Rockin' " (tonight at 10 p.m. on KCET Channel 28) is an exhilarating, moving portrait of an extraordinary woman. Hunter, who died at 89 in 1984, was a commanding singer whose career spanned seven decades--she took 20 years out to work as a practical nurse--and three continents. She sang with Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller and Paul Robeson and for Dwight Eisenhower and Jimmy Carter.

The Scene: Manhattan switched from Godzilla to gonzo when Monday's lizard-with-attitude premiere was followed by Tuesday's launch of Universal's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" at the China Club. Terry Gilliam's adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's drug-saturated novel was described by Ed Bradley as "a trip," by Buck Henry as reflecting "the early '70s lunatic disposition" and by another guest as "vile but in a good way."
