TMZ.com chief Harvey Levin isn’t upset that many news organizations declined to credit his Time Warner-owned website with breaking the story of Michael Jackson’s death, the media maven tells the Los Angeles Times.
"That’s typical," he told the Times, referring to the lack of credit. "No matter what they say, people know we broke the story. That’s how competitors handle it. There’s no issue about our credibility."
Interestingly, despite owning the story on the web, the syndicated newsmagazine version of TMZ didn’t make mention of the Jackson death during its opening segment last night.
