LA Times Buyout List Gets Longer and Longer

KRod has the list of LA Timesfolk taking the buyout and shaking the dust of Spring Street from their heels. FBLA’s big cool foodie pal, Charles Perry is on the list, as is the delightful Gina Piccalo, Kevin Crust, and too many others. We wish them all the best, and wonder why Los Angeles must remain a one-paper town.

Not mentioned, but also moving on is our favorite correspondent, Stephan Pechdimaldji, Senior Manager, Media Relations. He’s moving to a Silicon Valley outfit, and thus will clutter our inbox with happier news, no doubt.

LAT In 90 Seconds

34416814.jpgQuickie Movie Reviews: Kenneth Turan likes There Will Be Blood Kevin Crust turns his nose up at Bucket List (but thinks The Water Horse was well-executed. And Carina Chocano says Persepolis is worth seeing.

brithaircut.jpgAhmadinejad v. Spears: The LAT fills space with lists of its most-viewed stories of the year, categorized by sections. Maybe it’s not weird that LAT readers didn’t rush to the site to read the latest about Britney Spears … but the fact that she was edged off the entertainment list by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says a lot about the papaer’s industry coverage.

Favorite LAT Graph Of The Day: “No one, it turns out, does Internet auction fraud like the Romanians. Bulgarians specialize in intellectual property theft; Ukraine is a leader in online credit card crime; the Russians have a profitable niche in Internet dating fraud.” And the rest of this Ian Wylie piece about EBay tracking down Internet defrauders all the way in Romania is just as unexpected.

Trade Opens, Misses Chance to Be First Blog-Fight Movie

Kevin Crust reviews Trade, which looks pretty forgettable. Tactfuly, he mentions that the film is based on Peter Landesman’s NYT magazine cover story, but leaves out all the Blogitopia argle-bargle about the accuracy of the story, the threatened legal actions, and all the rest of it.

Frankly, that aftermath should have been woven into the movie. While movies about journalists range from the sublime (His Girl Friday) to the gripping (All The President’s Men) to the godawful (I Love Trouble) the great blog movie has yet to be made.

FBLA thinks that the part of Slate’s Jack Shafer could be played by Carson Daly.
