Hollywood Bloggers Gang up (part II)

Further to my post a few days about Hollywood bloggers beating up on one another. Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood Daily fires off a rebuttal to the Variety piece I linked to. She's saying the piece was a hit job and that Variety had tried to buy her site.

This is the kind of back-and-forth squabbling we used to see decades ago when there were multiple newspapers in cities and they were all jockeying for position. A sign of a reinvigoration of journalistic competition?
