Although Harvey Levin may not have yet launched satellite arm TMZ DC, he was at the National Press Club today as the organization’s luncheon keynote speaker. On the dais, Levin was joined by reporters from AP, the LA Times, the Wall Street Journal and more.
Levin decided to change up what he had planned on speaking about, because of an earlier speech today to “depressed” media students at George Washington University. He noted that there had been a debate among professors as to whether Levin should even be invited to the college:
“It’s not the subject matter that’s covered, it’s how it’s covered. TMZ is a news operation that uses the same skills and standards that I used as a working journalist at various news operations… I want to talk about the delivery system. Because that’s what’s relevant, that’s what’s important.”
