Little surprise that it took the local paper a little longer than the rest of the media to tackle the Emily Gould story. Quoting everyone from Rachel Sklar to our own sister pub, FBNY, the LAT may have been late to the game, but David Sarno makes the most salient point we’ve seen on the topic:
It’s not far off to say that the demographic that cared about this story most was the New York new media crowd. That group’s open access to megaphones and soapboxes belies its exceedingly small and unrepresentative nature — so much so that with a collective eye blink it can light up the blogosphere with vituperative chatter about what’s, after all, just a story about the by now unsurprising pitfalls of playing with the Web’s peephole-filled boundaries between public and private.
