Nikki Finke is in The New Yorker

091012_r18911_p233.jpgWowie, Nikki Finke is now in The New Yorker? First the front page of the New York Times and now a Tad Friend piece?!

Is Nikki uber – uber-famous or are New York jounos getting lazy?

Anyway, the piece is mostly nice to Nikki.

And in case you’re wondering – of course Sharon Waxman is quoted in the piece because no one can write an article about Nikki Finke without her frenemy Sharon Waxman commenting.

This is the funniest line in there:

Waxman covered Hollywood for the Times from 2003 to 2007; though her reporting occasioned a number of corrections, she is aggressively self-confident.

Who has to have the disclaimer “her reporting occasioned a number of corrections” mentioned about them besides like Jayson Blair?
