The Observer proclaims the fall of the Hollywood spin-doctors on the back of an honest celebrity interview in Vanity Fair (good publicity for the glossy magazine, note). The availability of unbiddable gossip weblogs such as Gawker is another factor cited. Peter Himler has more on this at The Flack.
