Day 2 of The Wrap, Sharon Waxman's contribution to the underserviced online-showbiz-news sector, indicates the site will be a very welcome Big Hollywood for the lefty liberal media elite. Still, kinks are being ironed out.
For starters, Google searches for "The Wrap" place the showbiz portal at the top of their results, accompanied by the following description: "Small local chain offering wraps and juice drinks. Includes menus, nutritional information, video clips, and a list of locations." Apparently The Wrap until now was the online presence of a delicious sandwich outpost servicing the hungry Ivy League minds of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Anyone logging on to order a hummus/tuna combo from now on will be disappointed to find nothing but calorie-deficient updates on Michael Jackson/John Landis legal fracases.
Secondly, the Rumor Mill section—one of our favorites—has been downgrading their gossip condiment bar from 4-pepper habanero spicy ("OVERHEARD AT SUNDANCE: Screenwriter of festival winner Push, Geoffrey Fletcher, so hated the first cut that he opted for a pseudonym, Damien Paul"), to the milder, less flack-dyspepsia-inducing, "The screenwriter of festival winner Push, Geoffrey Fletcher, opted for a pseudonym, Damien Paul. How come?"
C'mon, Sharon. Lay it on us. We got guts of steel! [The Wrap]
