Geoff Edgers explains (sort of) the Globe's snub of its own drama festival here. Money quote:
I actually had no idea this event was occurring. I have to say, I get a lot of e-mail pitches in my box each day . . . whether I should or should not have been aware of the Drama Festival Awards, I learned about them through (Tai Irwin's) blog complaint.
To be fair, of course, it's hard to see why this job should fall solely to Edgers (and as he points out, the Herald "didn't do squat either"). On the other hand, it's a bit hard to see why an arts festival sponsored by the Globe should have to beg it for some publicity . . . doesn't that simple fact hint at the sports-centered dysfunction at the paper?
On the other hand, it's been weeks since Geoff posted about Ray Davies. Keep up the good work, Geoff!
