Still, we received this note from her at 5: 27 a.m. this morning which would be 2:27 a.m. Pacific Time. It’s curious that a variety of respected outlets such as LAT, the AP and Newsweek have all apparently committed the same wretched sin and “error” we did. Also, please note the sentence in which she points out our “error.” It reads: “I really don’t know how media like MB can be so incredible [sic] sloppy and erroneous.”
See her letter…
Letter from Finke:
Why in the world would you label me a “gossip guru”?Exactly when have I EVER worked as a gossip guru? I am a business journalist — not to mention running a very successful media outlet — and have been one for more than a decade. Before that I was West Coast Editor and Hollywood business columnist for the New York Observer and then New York Observer. Before that staff with LA Times, Newsweek, Texas newspapers, AP. So your label is erroneous and damaging. Please correct it, You should know that many media outlets, including Vanity Fair and New York Observer, have corrected that label regarding me. I really don’t get how media like MB can be so incredible sloppy and erroneous.
