    I actually think a majority of the folks who read your post believed you.

    Speaking for myself, your post was the primary reason why I believed the PH/WWH scoop to be (in all probability) BS.

    That, and I couldn't believe that this was an alleged 'journalist' acting like a third tier WWF jobber. Yuck.

    I, personally, think it IS fair to write off LR. The fact that El Mayimbe continues to write on LR is implicit acceptance of his behavior. LR, after all, is a news site (with what I'm assuming is a very lax editorial process) and not a fan site.

    No problem! :)

    I didn't say it wasn't fair, I said I thought it was silly. Pretty much everything Da7e has reported has come true. That truth isn't undone because of anything El Mayimbe's said. You're welcome to write the whole lot of them off of course, but I personally choose to believe the scoops from the scoopers who prove themselves, and Da7e at LR has done that constantly over the years.

    LR isn't one of the trades, so they shouldn't be compared to them. They are comparable to AICN, Slashfilm, Collider, etc. And they've gotten more legitimate scoops on these films over the last few years than all of those sites combined. So as I said, I simply find the notion of completely writing them off because of one bad egg to be silly, when they are otherwise continuing to deliver perfectly solid intel. But of course that's up to each reader to make up his or her own mind about.

    I believe you Robin91939.

    But to play devil's advocate, maybe they added some film/TV offices after you left ;) .

    I would love to see a Planet Hulk live-action film, I just don't think it's going to happen.

    Lol. They did have toy marketing stuff for animated shows (Wolverine and the X-men and a few other shows) at the time.

    Dream job. Wish I could be back.

    Latino Review's stuff keeps changing anyway. First its Momoa as Drax. Then Batista. Then MOMOA IS DEFINITELY CONFIRMED. Uh oh, Tweet deleted. And now it's Batista is going to Marvel again, ARE THEY GOING TO OFFER HIM DRAX?!

    Agreed, to an extent. Da7e and most of the LR staff has done (and continues to do) some good work but the site must bear some level of accountability for El Mayimbe's behavior.

    I'm not even overly concerned that his scoops didn't/don't pan out to be true. Well, if he simply pulled stuff out of his ass, well, that's another story, but I digress...

    I'm not at all averse to specualtion and editorializing... even from journalists/reporters, especially considering the fact that entertainment news, by definition, is entertainment. 'Tis fun.

    My primary objection/problem is that they continue to provide a platform for him to showcase his absurd and bizarre antics.

    I agree that's a problem, but a lot of those sites have writers/editors who I find obnoxious or don't take seriously. So it just isn't a significant enough problem for me to write off all of their other scoops, when they continue to prove accurate. But as I said, that's up to each reader to make up his or her own mind about. They are not an official news site or a trade, so they aren't under any journalistic obligation to live up to any particular ethical or integrity standard. They post the gossip and things they've heard about the movies we care about, and we judge these reports for ourselves. It just so happens that most of the things they hear (when it's not from Mayimbe) turn out to be true, which is why they've become so prominent in the geek community. As long as they continue to post these accurate scoops, El Mayimbe will be an annoyance I'll have no problem overlooking. It's fine if others can't, but his presence doesn't put the credibility of the other writers on the site in question for me.

    Agreed. We have consensus. :up: Now why can't all debates end like this? :) Just caught up on the SHIELD show thread in the Marvel Films section, and... *shudder*
