Hollywood Jew in the LA Times and the NY Times (but who’s counting?)
Because one ‘Times’ wasn’t enough, Hollywood Jew made appearances in both the Los Angeles Times and New York Times this past week.
Given, last Friday’s NYTimes double-truck came at the hands of The Weinstein Co.‘s monstrous marketing budget, HJ thinks a full page reprint of this blog’s fodder falls into the old chestnut “all press is good press.” Though HJ isn’t sure whether she should thank Harvey Weinstein or Harvey Weinstein should thank her: “Please tell Danielle that her article looks to be at least as good, if not better, than the movie,” read one letter to the editor. And for the record, HJ does feel a bit sandbagged that the ol’ Weinstein warlock refashioned her headline (sincerest apologies to the American Jewish Committee who only deserved some of its scorn).
Resting only on the Sabbath, HJ made her LA Times debut in yesterday’s print edition where esteemed entertainment columnist Patrick Goldstein opined some jazzy things about Hollywood Jew and coined yours truly a ‘tribal critic’ (better that, she thinks, than ‘village idiot’). Many moons ago, when HJ was an incipient sapling, Mr. Goldstein gave her some very good advice: “Opinion and attitude” is the lifeblood of blogs—and she took that to heart. Needless to say, it was lovely catching up with Mr. Goldstein after more than three years and scores of snippy blog posts.
Here’s the LA Times take on Hollywood Jew, all grown up:
