Geez. It took the Los Angeles Times four reporters to say absolutely nothing new today about the William Morris-Endeavor merger story. Not even one fresh development. This, despite the fact that the paper is more than 5 weeks late printing a word about the deal, and more than two weeks behind The New York Times. Patrick Goldstein’s brief LAT blog post doesn’t count: it was timed to the NYT story, and acknowledged I broke the news back on February 17th, yet still managed to say less than nothing. Both trades have weighed in superficially. But the most clueless blogging was by error-prone Sharon Waxman who wrote that talks between the two agencies weren’t even happening.
