Is Mike Fleming taking over Nikki's role as Chief Noodnik at Deadline?

It appears that Nikki has mailed it in. The Old Gray Lady seemingly does nothing more than reprint press releases while putting Mike Fleming in charge of all the "reporting" AND the self-congratulatory nonsense. Be careful Darling Nikki as one day, the student will become the teacher.

And on that note, here's Mike's first foray in to being a bitch.

On a scale of 1-10 I give Mike's bitching about a 2. It's a nice idea to suggest that MTV is a bunch of crap that doesn't deserve to be considered news. But when your boss uses their "surface-scratching celebrity junket interviews" as content on your site...well...let's just say there's a conflict of ideas there.

I worked with Mike and say what you want, but he's not Nikki's bitch. Guy is very much a standalone guy. Should she ever die of eating too much chocolate, Deadline would keep running and breaking news with him at the helm. Also, he gets paid a ton of cash for being No. 2
