Blogdogger was surfing the web late last night when we noticed Rachel Abrams' scoop on Variety.com -- timestamped for 3:00 a.m. PST -- that Michael Diliberti’s “Little White Corvette,” starring Emma Stone, was driving from MRC over to GK Films. We sniffed around to see if anyone else had the news and, even several minutes later, no one had -- including Deadline. But when we awoke this morning, lo and behold, Deadline had a story up, mysteriously time-stamped at exactly 3:00 a.m. PST as well. No one outside of Variety was told that the story was to post at that exact moment at such a wee hour, and the news was definitely not a coordinated break. Coincidence? Or Deadline exercising its now-industry-standard flexible time-stamp privileges? Blogdogger knows which it is.
