|Breaking News: Traffic jams in Culver City don't involve cars!|
Now you might say this is just a poor editorial decision to cover Culver City traffic. But when you peel off the layers of this onion, it offers another metaphor I'll remember later. For the TV show/cause of the back-up is Tilda -- the upcoming HBO program about a "feared" Hollywood blogger. Yes, this is the same Tilda show for which Nikki is reported to be receiving a per-episode consultants fee from HBO. Conflictofinterestsayswhat?
And this is far from a one-time event. Deadline.com has written about this show six times in the last eleven days. By way of comparison, Darling Nikki's site has covered the upcoming SAG/AFTRA contract discussions only once during that same period.
Is this what Penske meant when he said Nikki has "changed the game" of entertainment journalism?
