Just Because Nikki Finke Hates Everyone In Hollywood Doesn't Mean She Doesn't "Care"Moe1/02/08 12:30pmFiled to: darling nikkiNikki FinkeWriters strike17EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThe New York Observer names LA Weekly blogger Nikki Finke its "Media Mensch Of The Year." If you don't know Nikki from our previous adulation, she's a veteran Hollywood journalist with a bottomless reserve of outrage re media consolidation, hypocrisy, conflicts-of-interest, chauvinist arrogance disguised as entrepreneurial "vision"...um, basically everything I hate also? Anyway, Nikki's blog Deadline Hollywood Daily has "owned" coverage of the Writer's Strike because she is not "owned" by anyone and also because she has realized to her surprise that she actually cares about Hollywood. "The writers don't get that the studios don't care," she said. "They think that the shareholders would care or the bosses would care or Wall Street would care or the government or Congress or the viewers—they don't care." Then she adds: "I didn't know I cared." Turns out she cares. And it's not for the reason you might think. On a personal level, you see, she sort of hates everyone in town.
