Yesterday we shared with you some juicy snippets of a Mediabistro interview with Janice Min, editorial director of the Hollywood Reporter, in which she said that Los Angeles was seriously lacking in talented journalists.
“Hiring out here is hard,” Min complained. “There is not a bench out here at all. You struggle to find enough working journalists out here to staff your publication and to even interview.”
Min’s statements left many local journos rolling their eyes. “Gee, sorry we letcha down, Janice,” tweeted Jon Weisman of Variety.com. “That’s Minsanity,” quipped David Young of True Blue LA. LA Weekly‘s Dennis Romero called Min’s remarks B.S. “Tons of great journalists in this market,” he said.
