Nikki Finke Going Solo Again

Nikki Finke Claims to Be Leaving Deadline, Announces

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.

We can get facts from robots. Hell, there’s a company out there writing software to spit out facts without human intervention.

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.
