While the Palisades burn, The Hollywood Reporter sizzles

thr-brusher-grab.jpgThat small brush fire that closed Pacific Coast Highway in Pacific Palisades really gummed up Westside traffic tonight — meaning, of course, that several Hollywood figures were inconvenienced, and for a brief time some celebrities' homes were even threatened. The Hollywood Reporter dutifully covered the news, from its trade perspective. The web story had the usual assortment of related links that publishers like to sprinkle in their stories in hopes of enticing one or two more clicks out of anyone who comes to read the news. In this case, perhaps THR should have chosen a little different wording for one of the click-bait links:

STORY: The Most Sizzling Real Estate Neighborhoods in Hollywood

Not strictly an oops, but seemed amusing enough to observe. Thanks to the THR reader who sent it to me.
