Jon Fine: Has TMZ Gone People?

finestuff.jpgBusiness Week’s Jon Fine posits that Britney Spears has neutered that supposed pitbull of celebrity journalism, TMZ.com.

To prove his point, Fine lists a few recent TMZ posts about the pop princess. Close your eyes and have your cubicle mate read you this sentece out loud: “Looks like rehab did more than good for Britney Spears’ soul — she also dropped a surprising ten pounds during her stay in Promises, and got herself not just buff, but buffed with spa treatments.”

Did you imagine yourself in the dentist’s waiting room, reading People? Guess again.
