Why Variety Is Wrong (and Right) About Film Blogs



Filed under : news article

Interesting article posted on Film School Rejects:

“Yesterday, Variety launched three salvos into the depths of the internet that resonated like the answer to a question nobody asked. “How I Got Blogged Down,” by Michael Fleming; “Tempest of the ‘Touldja!’ Journalists,” by Cynthia Littleton; and “Hollywood’s Blog Smog,” by the always-charming Peter Bart. I highly suggest you read them – or you can just let me poorly characterize them and stick with that.

Despite the three blatantly aimed at Nikki Finke – who must have thrown sand at all three writers on the playground last week or something – the articles do make some honest-to-god points about the gray area between traditional journalism and whole-sale blogging. The thrust of all three pieces is that the failings of bloggers and film sites are dragging down the fine profession of news-delivery. “

This begs the question – how objective is journalistic reporting with traditional publications? Isn’t there some subjectivity that exists in journalism to a degree?
