    Apparently, the site's main writer wanted to make a Rainbow Connection to Richard Deitsch's media column.

    I searched, and did not find another thread. If a D_B, apologies.

    Bergen Record. Wouldn't that put him there at the same time as Wojnarowski?

    Well, the US Weekly thing explains a lot.

    Awesome.

    It's awesome to finally put a face and a name to the fraud.

    Us Weekly and Star? Really? I'm just fucking shocked. Starfucker.

    And I just love the meta of this: He has aggressively courted media members as sources. Gee I wonder why? Hard to cultivate your own actual sources when you're BLOGGING in the BASEMENT.

    He hasn't aggressively courted me. :(

    Loved this too: "At the blog's best, it would strive to be The Colbert Report meets Drudge Report."

    At the blog's best? Isn't that an oxymoron?

    Some impressive chutzpah to compare himself to The Colbert Report, though.

    FRAUD!!!!
