WWD isn’t talking about Jacob Bernstein’s profile of Nikki Finke that disappeared from the online archives, despite being published over the July 4th weekend.
Andrea Kaplan told FBLA “we have no comment”.
We asked Luke Ford if WWD was making him take down his post quoting from the story. He told FBLA that WWD hasn’t communicated anything to him.
Our emails and phone calls to Jacob Bernstein have not been returned.
Kevin Roderick pulled his quotes yesterday, citing a mysterious source, who’s probably the same person who suggested that FBLA do the same.
Trust us, the quotes aren’t nearly as interesting as the mysterious disappearance of the story.
If we were to guess, WWD must not have fact-checked very carefully. Or else the editors suspected that outing a journalist’s sources (or some of those sources) might be a bad idea.
