NY Post on WWD/Bernstein/Finke


Keith Kelly in the NY Post sheds a little light on WWD’s retraction of the Nikki Finke profile.

Kelly’s new info includes:

After the story ran, WWD made several corrections to the article after Finke called and sent a number of e-mails to WWD Editor Ed Nardoza complaining about inaccuracies in Bernstein’s reporting.

Several of them were corrected, then the WWD mysteriously pulled the story from its Web site.

The reason: apparently a portion of the interview was taped, and sources said there is a legal question about whether one blanket “yes you can tape [the conversation]” covered all subsequent follow-up interviews.

Kelly didn’t get to speak to either Bernstein or Finke,.
