Jazzhands

To foreign readers, and "Junket police"

So, let me get this straight.  You sit in roundtables, never open your mouth, which is why I guess you can criticize other people’s accents because no one has ever heard you speak.  Do you understand the term ‘foreign press’ i.e.  EVERYONE has an accent?  So, then you go home  (on the bus, no less!)  and write disparaging (look It up) comments about people while hiding behind your own funny little obscure language no one can understand?   I’m sure your countrymen must be very proud of you perpetuating the image of the timid little mouse who in reality is a vitriolic snake like some of your other Swedish colleagues in LA pretending to be’legitimate’ journalists.  I hope you have a Plan B concerning your income – publicists will be thrilled to see how you utilize these junkets.  And very brave of you to comment on other people’s appearance when we can see pictures of what you look like.  Obviously, you have a good sense of humor!  You’ll need it!
I’m sure you’ll be very popular when you enter the next hospitality suite – your blog is being circulated as a warning to other journalists who have the misfortune to sit with you on roundtables, so that they will be aware that, in fact, they are the subject of your next story.

Junket Police

Dear “Junket police”,

Thank you for your comment.
I seem to have upset you somehow and for this I wish to apologize.
I love being a junket journalist. I love everything that surrounds it, from hospitality suites to meeting people from different countries (some of which have become my friends!). And yes, naturally I have an accent too, when I speak. I am a foreigner.
I love junkets, I truly do. But I find those roundtable situations bizarre, most of the time. It is not because of the individual people but the situation. Everyone is there with a different agenda or editor, wanting different angles for their story. The questions being thrown at the talent sometimes differ so much from one interviewer to another, that the interview becomes absurdly strange.
This I find funny, yes, and I have reflected on it on many occasions in this blog. This is not, however, the same as using my blog as a personal outlet for mockery. That should be evident, I have had this blog for a long time (three years) and most of my press contacts know of it, as far as I know.
I have also, on various occasions, reflected upon my own part in the roundtable interviews in this blog.
Here for example.
I am unfortunately, as you have noticed, sometimes quite shy at these occasions. It all depends on the mood of the room, I guess, but in general I am not the most prominent speaker in the room. You are right about that and as you can see in previous entries, quite aware of that too. It is a problem of mine nontheless.

I am not sure why the particular entry that you commented on (“Journalistskvaller”) upset you so much. One of the journalists at the table (you, perhaps?) talked about the Oscars and how the voting sometimes works. I thought it was very interesting (and I am jealous of anyone with such insight. As a shy foreigner I will never gain that) and wrote about it.
I also made comments on the accent of one of the other participants and this is, perhaps, unecessary even though the post is in Swedish (an obscure language, indeed). I believe it was more of an observation than a vicious insult but since you seem to have taken offense to it it will be removed.

Again – if I have upset you I hope you can accept my apology. I would love to talk to you next time we meet, if we do. Maybe you misunderstood some adjective I used?

Kind and respectful regards,
Caroline

    Du har inget att be om ursäkt för Caroline. Det där var ett elakt brev från en människa som uppenbarligen tar sig själv och det han gör på för stort allvar.

    Din självdistans är det som gör dig så jäkla bra, så keep on writing on that “obscure language no one can understand”.

    So let me get this straight for the junket police. I’ll make an exception and write in English in case he/she by any chance reads this.

    That obscure language people think that they can understand if they use google translate, is more like it.

    “So then you go home, on the bus no less”. Yeah. Whoever felt the need to misunderstand your blog entries is definitely an American. Who other would critizise someone’s choice to be environmentally friendly instead of driving a gigantic SUV just to look cool? Lifestyle before environment, yay!

    As the previous comment says: there is nothing to be ashamed of for observing and reporting about it. In fact this is what journalists do for a living. I believe in free speech for mankind.

    Keep on writing!

    Wait a minute: b4 this lady maffia totally takes over I gotta say something about junker police having a point!!

    First of all: it IS kinda annoying to read too often comments on accents and the ethinic stuff: the other day jazzhands wrote about some mexicans and so on and so on. Look: if u really wanna do a good job; skip the whole genre of making too much fun on other people….thats just not fun or interesting at all…

    Dear Shy Foreigner,

    You have been biting the hand that has feeds for the last three years. These journalists you mock have afforded you an income and a slot on the roundtables. As you admit, you are unable to ask questions, so therefore you need the journalists who do their job (and yours apparently) and without them you’d be in another line of business (I could make some suggestions)

    If I were you, I’d sit in a quiet room and think about all those ‘observations’ you’ve made over the last few years, particularly towards the journalists you have named in previous blogs, and write them a personal email expressing your gratitude for them in doing your job for you, and apologize for your humiliating comments.

    I will then retire from the junket police force.

    Junket police, would you please get of your high horses. There’s a difference between making fun of people and retelling riveting tales from the journalistic front lines. Putting a text through google translate does get you the words translated, but you won’t get the tone and colour right.

    But then again, Junket police, you seem to be a fucking asshole, so I guess you won’t care whether you get the tone right or not.

    Dear junket police,

    Thank you for your reply and your suggestions. I will indeed think about my observations, as I often do. But before doing so, I must state something: I have never named junket journalists.
    This is important to me, I must stress it. So I will write it again:

    I have never named any junket journalist.

    There are no names of junket journalists in this blog (apart from Oliver who is my friend). I do not even know the names of the other journalists who turn up at junkets. But if you would please tell me yours and the names of the people you feel have been insulted by me, I may be able to contact them and apologize for mentioning them, but not their names, in my blog.

    Maybe you have their email addresses too? That would be great. Please send me your email address as well and I will include you in the mail. This I will gladly do.

    You can email me at cahai[at]hotmail.com

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Kindly,
    Caroline

    Is it just me that finds it hilarious how mr/ms anonymous insults Jazzhands language abilities yet obviously haven’t been able to read/comprehend the blog-entries correctly in the first place?

    So there’s threats, insults. There’s misunderstandings, there’s blatant lies, he/she even goes his/her way to post a google-translation around. And to top it off he/she calls himself a professional?

    Now that is something you don’t see every day.

  • NWA was right about the (junket) police, 9:40 am March 16, 2010:

    So, Mr Officer, here’s what I don’t get: why do you – if you’re such a protector of good journalism – keep defending journalists that are bad at what they’re doing?
    Since it’s only them that Caroline criticizes. Sometimes maybe in a too harsh tone (I’ll give you that), but by exposing to us Jazzhands-readers just how bad at what they’re doing these so called journalists are, Caroline shows us the ridiculousness of junkets and the horrible state of entertainment journalism today. I’m no veteran junket journalist like yourself or Caroline, but I’ve been to perhaps fifteen or twenty, and I have to say that she’s quite accurate in her discription of the shockingly low level of journalism that’s touring the junket circuit. You may only see the insults, but underneath them she has a valid and important point.

    Her blog posts are not (so much) about making fun of accents – like you point out: everyone’s got one. It’s about not being able to construct a sentence or question in comprehensible English, in a situation that demands nothing of you except just that.
    If, say, plummers were as bad at their jobs as these clowns we’d all be knee deep in crap. But publicists and selfrighteous colleagues like yourself chose to look the other way while crappy hacks like the ones Caroline describes – ill-prepared, coming to junkets without doing even the most basic research, not able to ask questions in at least acceptable English – gives entertainment journalism the shitty reputation it has today.

    So who’s the bad journalist here. Is it:

    A) The one who sees people that doesn’t do their job properly, and exposes them to the public. That would be Caroline.

    or

    B) The one that validates journalistic mediocrity by holding abysmal colleagues behind his or her (you won’t even tell Caroline your name, coward) back. That would be you, Sir.

    Isn’t it quite plausible that Mr/Ms Junket Police is a representative from Disney/Warner/Fox etc? A high-strung pr-guy/girl who in the usual American corporate pr-way just can’t handle the fact that something happens beyond their control? Who freaks out at the very notion that he or she can’t control every word a journo writes?

    And when the journo in question has the audacity to be EUROPEAN, mr/ms Junket Police just FREAKS OUT.

    I think this is the truth behind all this. Caroline should just keep on doing what she’s doing. Because she does it very well.

    I just heard about your blog. I’m another journalist with one of those accents you make fun of. You’re a mean-spirited incompetent ‘journalist’ who in 3 years on the junket circuit has never asked one question. I sat with you for Bradley Cooper and it’s outrageous that you criticized the questions when you didn’t open your mouth. Not once. You have been earning money off our ‘bad accents’ for years – the Russians, the French, the Germans. You even criticize the Japanese for not speaking???? Aren’t they ‘shy foreigners’ like you? Makes no sense. I will make sure I never have to sit with you again, I will explain my reasons to the publicist, and after talking to some other journalists within in our community of ‘bad accents,’ no one else does either.

    If I were you I would be prepared to start doing your job at junkets. And they had better be smart questions! We are not hiding behind any blogs laughing at your bad dress-sense, your ugly sweaters, or your fat legs. Oh, and I forgot, you say you dont name anyone – then what is this?

    I may be one in your group next time. If anything I’ve learned to laugh at myself and others (that article has a few good examples), be aware of my own questions at the tables and it goes without saying; not resort to childish sandbox banters as “bad dress sense”.

In one story alone you mentioned Henri from France, Irina from Russia and Frank from Germany. I too have been in multiple junkets with you and watched you coast on the research and hard work of others. It’s one thing to criticize others for their questions, but if after three years you’ve still not found the courage to ask a single one of your own, do everyone a favor and stay away. Your disdain for those simply trying to do their job while you remain incapable of doing yours is particularly disagreeable.

    Fuck You Junket Police,

    What is this? A war among the very few half intellectuals doing round tables i LA? It’s fucking laughable.

    Caroline has all the rights in the world to do roundtables. Most of the people who do these round tables don’t have a fucking idea what they’re doing there in the first place. People trying to be film journalists, and correspondents in Los Angeles, where all the stars are, do have their own agenda prior to their magazine or website. You think backwards. You’re there because you want to meet and see stars, with a kind of “then why don’t I write about it” mentality. You’re not there because you’re a journalist. WHO CAN WRITE? I tell you, film journalists in general can’t writ for shits! Caroline is there because she can write, in first, secondly she can earn a living. Third, she’s probably there for the stars.

    Speaking of foreigners. I do not want to euro bash here. But Swedes, along with English and Danish people are among the very few in Europe who do speak English. That’s because we do learn. If you do not speak the language of your stars, fucking learn. Or put Swedes, Finish, Danish and English people in the same group. PR people – it could be very frustrating doing interviews together with people from lets say, non speaking European countries, that upsets the interviewee, takes forever to ask something that’s just been asked…

    Fuck you for asking Caroline if she has a have a Plan B. I’ll go medevil on your ass – so you better have a plan B! Get your cock out of your sock and do some good. Fucking retard!

    You’re missing the point here ‘None of your business’. Although there are definitely seats on the round tables taken by journalists with little idea of what they’re doing, places are also filled with excellent writers who contribute to the best of the world’s film, music and entertainment magazines and newspapers, who have been successfully making a career out of doing so for more than 20 years. You really think anyone is here because they want to see stars? Everyone here is well over that; instead they’re here to make a living and support their families contributing features and interviews on a topic they have become experts on. Your pal Caroline is one of the unprofessional ones that give the circuit a bad name. She’s unprepared and relies entirely on those that have done their research and have the simple, basic, journalistic requirement of BEING ABLE TO ASK A QUESTION! That is what journalists do. Caroline enters a room, puts her tape recorder on the table, sits silently throughout, picks it up and writes things up as if she’s somehow involved in this process. While I’m sure you’re enthralled by her musings on LA’s frozen yoghurt establishments, this does not make her the professional journalist you incorrectly assume she is. And really… retard?

    Well, grasp at whatever you can mr. anonymous. Got to be angry at something.

  • Emma Gray Munthe, 11:55 am March 19, 2010:

    But please. Everyone who has ever been around the junket circuit knows how it works, knows the awkward and silly questions and situations that sometimes pop up. The whole circus of it is something we discuss among ourselves, chit chat about while we’re waiting to do the interviews, some blog about it – and really, what’s the big deal? To threat Caroline and make such a fuzz in this way about some innocent remarks on a Swedish blog is just silly, borderline narcissistic and childish. Take a deep breath, calm down, move on. Grown journalists who post crap anonymously about “chubby legs and ugly sweaters”, and still claim to write for some of the best magazines in the world should be ashamed of themselves. If you really want to discuss the matter, do it openly, with your real names and in a polite manner.

    Everything that Emma said and then some. How dare you, Junket Police and Another Foreigner, be anonymous while spewing such bile on Caroline? If what you’re saying were true, then I am sure it would be no problem to step forward from your cowardly shadows. Your behaviour here on the Interwebs is just like Lindsay’s lawsuit – ridiculous.

    Caroline, jag tycker att du är fantastiskt rolig! Hoppas att du kan skita i den där tramsan som verkar skriva under flera olika alias här. Jag tror nämligen att det bara handlar om en enda sorglig individ som sitter hemma och hatar.

    Rock on!

    JunketPolice:
    How about you just go and get a life?

    You are just embarassing yourself and making americans look even more stupid than they are.
    (In your case, maybe that´s impossible)

    Just accept that your job is totally unimportant, and try to not take yourself so seriously.
    Noone needs junkets, so you should just be glad that someone is paying you to ask lame questions to semi-famous people and stop harassing other people.

    Cause really, nothing is as childish as playing tough behind a computer.

    Go girl, keep making fun of Henry the fat Frenchman, Frank the smelly German, Irina the ugly Russian and all the others you have mentioned in your blog over the past three years. It’s a shame that you’ve deleted all those threads about how you hate all your journalist colleagues ’cause it was entertaining reading! Keep on writing, spill the beans on the nasty junket scene. I love your writing. You rock!
