Pulling a reverse-TMZ, “Access Hollywood” — they of the televised celebrity arse-lickery — will be boosting their online presence (read: gossip blogging). Of course the Times went to omnipresent blogger and celebrity schadenfreudist Perez Hilton (nee Mario Lavandeira) for comment: ‘“People just want a lot of content,” Mr. Lavandeira said. “There’s this insatiable thirst, this appetite for celebrity news.”’
Since the show is a product of NBC Universal, it will seek to “balance that appetite [for celebrity news] with its own standards of accuracy.” Heh.
Is this an appropriate time to mention that I hate the internet?
