LET'S PUT IT ALL BEHIND US AND DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND: There's a nice piece over on Blogcritics from Clyde Smith, which takes a look at Vibe's first post-awards bash (emphasis on the bash, of course) issue, and the somewhat lukewarm coverage they've given to the story. One interesting fact is that when the trouble broke out, the feed of events to the press room was cut straight away , which makes it rather hard for anyone to verify that the magazine's "this is how it was" report is totally accurate. Understandably, Vibe are keen to try and kick this story under the sofa, but their attempts to PR-manage the fallout aren't winning them many friends right now.
