Nikki Finke forgets what being "Editor in Chief" means

Apparently the Village Voice decided to follow my lead pointing out Nikki Finke's been writing just a little too much about a show based on Nikki Finke.  So today she put out some absurd statement about the show, the article and herself.

Let's assume the above statement is true.  That she has no involvement in the show and that any coverage through her site is simply coincidental.  Now look at the following posting from Deadline dated June 5.

Again, assuming Nikki's statement today to be true, and considering the June 5 posting above, then we have to also conclude one of the following:
  • Nikki has lost editorial control over her own publication,
  • Nikki hires hack reporters with no editorial judgment whatsoever, or
  • Nikki thinks coverage of Culver City traffic jams is important.

Which one do you think it is?

None of the above -- Nikki likes talking about herself whenever she can!

In the past, I haven't always understood what you had against Nikki, but in this case you're 100% right. There's nothing wrong with cross promotion, NBC promotes Universal stuff all the time, but they don't try to claim that they had no idea they were doing it. Nikki should own up to what she's doing, but based on what I've read about Hollywood, that's never going to happen. Keep up the great work on one of my favorite blogs.
