CNBC Says "Mike South - South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

My Reader Was Right! AVN and XBiz Prove It

Over a week ago one of my readers made the comment that unless it comes in the form of a press release with a check attached AVN and XBiz ignore it.

Remember the 2 week old plus story about a LATATA Agency being targeted by the California Department of Industrial Relations?  AVN nor XBiz had a word to say about that story…that is until today, when the news came out in the form of a press release sent to AVN and XBiz

Proving that if you want to know whats really happening…read mikesouth.com, if you want to read press releases about 3 week old events…AVN and XBiz have ya covered
