Mainstream reporters whose stories are printed in newspapers which are then hand-delivered to newsstands and newspaper vending machines by guys in trucks…these reporters and their editors really love pointing out that Steve Zallian‘s All The King’s Men was a huge debacle. The difference this time is that L.A. Times writer Scott Martelle got to talk to Zallian, the poor guy, and take his photo even. Look at the expression he’s wearing. It’s glum but in a kind of enigmatic, late-afternoon, verging-on-Mona Lisa way.
