Variety drops porn blog


Based on an anonymous tip, I dropped in on's weblog page and found that "The Porning Report" is history. "Coverage of the porn industry's move to mainstream" had been written by Frank Meyer, associate editor for AVN Online. In its place is an editor's note posted this morning:

The Porning Report is no longer being updated. Please send comments to We encourage you to check out Variety's other blogs at Thank you for reading.
