Changes at Fishbowl LA

Kate Coe was fired as co-editor in a dispute over money, says her friend and former colleague who blogs as Tabloid Baby. He's glowing about her, but I'm surprised it took this long for Coe and Mediabistro to part ways. She used Fishbowl LA to push friends and carry out grudges, made a lot of errors and borrowed to excess from LA Observed. (Low point: In January she passed off one of my observations about the LAT as something she read in the Times.) Mediabistro's sites in New York and Washington are respected, and FBLA should be just as smart and savvy. To that end, perhaps, Tina Dupuy has joined as co-editor, alongside the remaining Mayrav Saar.
