Lennon page

Kudos to Marie-Joelle Parent and John Kryk for a couple of unique John Lennon stories marking yesterday's 30th anniversary of the rock legend's murder in New York.

Personally, we can't get enough of the writings of New York-based Marie-Joelle and John, but with John, the question is why doesn't he write more often? Thoroughly enjoyed his November piece about Johnny Carson.

Marie-Joelle's Twitter page says she is  a "New York multi-media entertainment and news correspondent for Sun Media Canada." 

Sun Media should keep her busy. She has the tabloid touch. More frequent input from her would be preferably over those embarrassing WENN-dominated back pages any day of the week.

BTW: WENN online is even more of a joke. A count this early a.m. - 15 WENN entertainment stories for Tuesday and Wednesday.

But when the budget is tight and manpower is minimal . . .


  1. I'm sure you were just as critical of CP/AP wire content being used on these pages when they were available to member papers?

  2. Veteran London Free Press entertainment columnist James Reaney spills the beans about Julian Fantino and Sun Media:
