I am shocked and dismayed that the Los Angeles Times is so lacking in original content reported by its scores of entertainment beat journalists that it would post a list of liked and disliked Hollywood figures compiled by an anonymous snarker who runs a temp website. I’m not kidding so it bears repeating: the author of “The Brown List” runs a website for temporary workers and is self admittedly neither a Hollywood insider nor responsible journalist. And this poll received just 1,200 responses from people who could vote for as many names as they wanted, and as many times as they wanted. So the LA Times‘ Patrick Goldstein should apologize to readers, and also to Hollywood, for lending credence to a list that is the definition of meaningless.
Just How Pathetic Is LA Times Coverage Of Hollywood? Well, THIS Pathetic!
