Big thank you to my good friends at TMZ, who linked to The Ralphie Radio Show blog in their report of news I broke today in regards to Kid Cudi's departure from Lady GaGa's "Monster Ball." Despite my deletion of the story from the blog, TMZ still gave credit to The RRS, as we first reported the change.
The Ralphie Radio Show and TMZ have enjoyed a great partnership since the official launch of The RRS in August 2007. I've always preferred TMZ to other celebrity news blogs because they actually report - as in gathering sources, fact checking, breaking news, and creatively writing/distributing the facts. This simply reaffirms my beliefs, as TMZ did not have to link to the blog, but did because from a journalistic perspective, it was the right move.
