A blog is a pretty powerful weapon in the hands of a reporter with lots of opinions. -- Jacob Bernstein, Women's Wear Daily
The constant battles and bickering between must-read Hollywood industry bloggers David Poland (The Hot Blog), Nikki Finke (Deadline Hollywood Daily) and Jeffrey Wells (Hollywood Elsewhere) often deliver engaging insider tales from L.A.
This morning, Wells teased a new profile of Finke from WWD by offering some of her apparent choice quotes and then tonight Poland weighed in with the full text, charging that her reaction to the story spiked it from WWD's website.
During a recent bloggers panel at the L.A. Film Fest, participants recalled a time years ago when the blogging trio of Poland, Finke and Wells had met to discuss working together. These days they declined to appear on the same dais together, but just imagine if they had... worked together.
