Late yesterday the Hollywood Patch ran a story about a lawsuit against Hollywood Treasure. The “contributor” to the article called the office fishing for information. I told him that I knew nothing about it, that I had no comment, and that was that.
Dead end, right? Nope. The article attributed me for information about who used to produced Hollywood Treasure and who is currently producing the show. This is information that the reporter could have gotten through a simple search on the Internet. But, no, it is much better when it’s quoted by someone. Just lazy journalism. It is like writing that someone had no comment. You put it in there just to reach some kind of word count quota. For the record, this so-called news article has less than 250 words.
