Mike Larkin certainly knows all the Mail Online tricks that have made his outlet the most trafficked newspaper website in the world and a staple of The Drudge Report. The outlet’s local brand of Web hocus pocus, tapped out assembly-line style at several westside offices, often includes a top-heavy celebrity headline and as many gigantic photos of Hollywood boldface as possible. In other words, no Tom LaBonge here.
