Nikki Finke is dumb (Volume 26)

I've been absent from the blogosphere for a while because, well, no one pays me to be here.  But something happened this morning that brought me back for at least a day.

I was lost on the Internet and came across, of all awful sites, Deadline.  So I took a moment to indulge my self-loathing and decided to see what was going on in the entertainment world.  Then I came across "Nikki Finke's Mind-Numbingly Stupid Survey Question of the Day®"

Now I get that the journalism is a competitive industry and everyone is trying to out-scoop everyone else.  But the trick here is that Deadline and Variety happen to be owned by the same dude - Jay Penske.  So a surefire way to piss off the man who is writing the checks is to say his newest investment is doomed to failure.

But when has Darling Nikki ever done anything that makes a bit of sense.
