Show Biz Reporters Exchange Barbs in NY Observer Piece

You can read the whole story for yourself – but we’ll sum it up:

Sharon Waxman, Nikki Finke, Anita Busch, Patrick Goldstein and Brian Lowry all hate each other and claim that they are the ones that are the most journalistic. Basically, they’re scratching each others’ eyes out in a New York paper. Which is only notable because they usually only do this on their respective blogs. Dog bites man. Show biz scribes catfight.

Blah blah.

The problem with entertainment writers is they write for people that don’t read, so they have to result to theatrics in order to get attention.
