Kasdan's "Darling Companion" Gets Release; Or How Film Journalism Lacks Cojones
5

How could every trade paper--including indieWIRE--republish a press release without any context? What sort of journalism is this? One might like to believe that the New York Times doesn't simply rehash White House press releases--although maybe it does--but I was surprised to see the announcement that production company Werc Werk Works sent out about Sony Pictures Classics acquiring their latest film "Darling Companion" just one day after I reported about the company's transgressions. Was it just coincidence or a little strategic media deflection?

Honestly, I expected at least one outlet to mention the Werc Werk Works story that indieWIRE published yesterday. Is our collective memory that short? Or do journalists buy everything they're spoon-fed?
