I haven't seen much outside of my Twitter feed talking about Anne Helen Peterson's The Down and Dirty History of TMZ, but I really hope it will become more viral soon and get the coverage it deserves. Plus, I just love her work on The Hairpin , specifically Scandals of Classic Hollywood. I recommend her work ALL THE TIME and will continue doing it until more gossip mongering academic types get on board or people rave about her book. She even did an interview talking about leaving academia for Buzzfeed.
