I had to do a post on the whole coverage of News Corp buyout of Harlequin which has deep repercussions for the industry and the genre of Romance. The fact so many articles just made cheap shots instead of focusing and exploring the issues of the transaction is really telling about the attitude that so many has over Romance despite the fact this is a billion dollar industry that helps to carry other genres.
