The relatively fresh Satuday edition of the Wall Street Journal is breaking new ground in financial reporting -- and apparently now lets the paper's reporters chase down those hard-to-confirm leads in other subject areas. Take yesterday's A1 story: "Caught in the Act! How Hollywood's bold-faced names secretly steer the celebrity news machine.".
Apparently, much of what we see in the gossip rags and weekly "women's magazines" is actually staged!
"I would probably say at least 50% of what you see in terms of Hollywood coverage is something that was not necessarily born organically," says Janice Min, editor in chief of US Weekly. "This is a totally symbiotic relationship. This is how celebrities survive."
Is this really A1 material?
