A Day in the Life of a Daily Mail Reporter

In addition to being faithfully linked at the Drudge Report, another way London’s Daily Mail website continues to rack up ridiculous traffic numbers is volume, volume, volume.

As English pudding-proof, consider the trail left in the past 24 hours by LA based showbiz correspondent Sarah Fitzmaurice (pictured). It starts with a dispatch about Jeff Goldblum‘s mystery woman at The Grove and ends with a look at Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Kim Richardsreturn to rehab.

John Byrne BusinessWeek Departure Rumors Turn True

johnbyrne .jpgWhen false reports of the deaths of Lady Gaga or Jeff Goldblum get blasted all over Twitter, it becomes a trend piece in The New York Times. “The Internet Who Cried Wolf” serves as a gentle reminder that not everything you read online is true.

The media equivalent of course, would be Anna Wintour‘s departure from Vogue. There have been so many rumors, sworn testimonies and first-hand accounts of the editrix leaving Condé Nast that sometimes it seems like she’s hanging on there just to spite the morning’s headlines.

But recently, the magazine departure watchdogs have had a new person of interest: BusinessWeek.com‘s editor-in-chief John Byrne. Except this time, the gossipers were right. Turns out, Byrne is leaving the Bloomberg LP-owned business magazine to launch a digital media company in San Francisco.

Bleiberg Is Thinking Oscar For Goldblum; He’s Also Self-Distributing

bleiberg.jpgEhud Bleiberg, a producer and sales guy on the AFM-style indie circuit, is taking the risky road by launching a self-distributed film called “Adam Resurrected” with Jeff Goldblum in the lead role.

The film, directed by “Taxi Driver” writer Paul Schrader, has been on the screening circuit of late and is in mini-Oscar-qualifying runs at theaters like the Sunset Laemmle 5.

“It’s not only a phenomenal film, but it’s the best film out this year,” bragged Bleiberg to FBLA. “It should win awards and Jeff should be nominated.”

Though it was shut out by the Golden Globes, Bleiberg is still very hopeful on the Oscars nods. He’s on the hook for a good chunk of the film’s $10 millon budget. His Bleiberg Entertainment is keen on maintaining control.

Goldblum plays a former circus entertainer who was spared from the gas chamber and became the ringleader at an asylum for Holocaust survivors.

Bleiberg is self-distributing the piece, largely because he wasn’t being flooded with offers from the indie big boys, though it did well at the Telluride Film Festival over Labor Day. But he’s convinced it will be noticed simply because he’s so good in the role.
