The article about DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com by NYT media columnist David Carr for Friday is online. It claims I’m “thuggish”. So thug this: I’ll be back to work on Monday.

UPDATE: Interesting commentary on the piece by FAIR (Fairness And Accuracy In Reporting) here.

2ND UPDATE: The article has several errors. This is the most glaring: When I began my website in March 2006, I had not “run low on money and options” as Carr claims. Just the opposite. I had been an award-winning columnist with LA Weekly for four years. 2002 is when my career hit the skids, the year I sued Disney, News Corp, and the New York Post to fight for a journalist’s freedom to write accurately about the business and advertising partners of Big Media.
