Oh Come On Timmy!

Don't get me wrong. I love LAT media writer Tim Rutten. His assesments are often deeply informed, spot on and well written. Not to mention he's been writing some asskicking book reviews lately, but as he chimes in on the Page Six Burkle/Stern scandal, I can't help but think that Rutten might be a bit naive:
Call us simple-minded, but if you put it in a newspaper, aren't you supposed to believe it's true, and aren't the readers supposed to have some degree of confidence that you weren't paid to put it there?
To that I have two words for Mr. Rutten: Trend Piece.

Sink to Gossip, or Turn the Page
