The corporatization of Deadline: Hollywood was a sad thing to witness.
I understood the need for additional staff to report facts. But I was never attracted to Deadline for facts. I was there for the fearless brilliance of Nikki Finke.
This is what Suits don’t understand. Even in 2013 it eludes them.
What we want, what we crave is bravery, fearlessness, truth, honesty, a human point of view.
You know what that costs? It’s priceless.
Good luck to Nikki. I will eagerly read her new site.
