Variety is "in search of a full-time NY-based reporter to cover finance and entertainment," Variety.com editor Chris Krewson posts on his Twitter feed. "Interested? Ping me or @lwolinsky." Well, except Wolinsky has only tweeted once, from before he moved into his new job as editor of Daily Variety. His Twitter account doesn't yet mention Variety, listing him simply as "veteran news executive and media consultant." He is the former #2 editor at the Los Angeles Times. In January, Variety lost top reporter Mike Fleming to Nikki Finke's Deadline | Hollywood.
Saddest media use of Twitter? From the desk of Larry King:
King also tweets: "Why is the #2 pencil so popular? Why is #2 treated like number #1?"
