Blogger Cites “Freedom” as Distinction Between Her and Big Media

Nikki Finke, who manages the blog “Deadline Hollywood Daily,” points out how she differs from more established media outlets:

“I don’t think I’m a better journalist than anybody else,” she said. “I don’t think I’m a harder-working journalist than anybody else. I do think I have a forum where I have more freedom than anybody else.”

It seems to be paying off for her:

“Her influence cannot be overstated,” said Jon Robin Baitz, executive producer of the ABC drama “Brothers and Sisters…”

“Justin Stangel, a head writer for “The Late Show With David Letterman,” summarized the sentiment on his strike blog, saying: “I feel like I am having an affair with Nikki Finke. I am spending much more time with her than my wife.”
