letter to the editor; Re: AUSTRALIAN MEAT PIE Vs HOT DOG

By Steven Lane, published on Jan 12, 2007

...To say I am disappointed in the editorial staff of this newspaper would be a massive understatement, at the very least! I have emailed your circulation department a request, on my behalf, for an immediate refund in full for any remaining time left on my subscription. There will be no more "BrooWaha" with this readers morning coffee again. And my past issues shall only be used as cage lining for my illiterate cockatoo, "Barney". If you continue to litter my drive-way with your shameless tabloid, I will contact the authorities. Why?, you ask. Let me tell you why! Your willy, nilly... (more)

To the Top of Eagle Rock: Hiking in Los Angeles

By V, published on Dec 28, 2006

...water and a cell phone for safety. Be conscious of the time so you do not risk walking in the dark on an unfamiliar trail. Always be sure when hiking to tell someone where you are going and how long you expect to be. And most importantly, DO NOT leave any trash behind! For the enjoyment of BrooWaha readers, I will share the knowledge so kindly shared with me, continuing local tradition. Here’s how to access this fantastic hiking trail, deep within Topanga Canyon, when heading North on the PCH toward Malibu from Venice/ Santa Monica. . Admire the Pacific Ocean all along side you... (more)

The Brouhaha over Citizen Newspapers revealed

By Steven Lane, published on Dec 23, 2006

On Wednesday, December 20th The Los Angeles Times ran an article on the "new wave of citizen newspapers". The primary focus of the piece, written by Times writer, Mayrav Saar, was none other than this writers favorite online news site. That's right, we are talking BrooWaHa here. We get to know Ariel Vardi, founder and editor of this site. We even meet his beautiful girlfriend and their unnamed, but well photographed, pooch. There is discussion and revelations as to the whys and the hows Ariel started on this path. All interesting stuff. But, well, golly gee, it might just be me, but the first... (more)

Bit Tense? Try a Holiday Hopeful

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 21, 2006

It's the holiday season, and I say it with all the loving sentiments I can muster: my family is really stressing me out. While some contributors to BrooWaha.com (check out Glen T's article on vacationing) admit inheriting some strange-but-quickly-spreading gene that discourages relaxation, this journalist feels like she's acquired somewhere a healthy dose of both work and “chilling”. That is, until the holidays arrive and I'm shoved back into a whirlwind of arguing parentals and other mindless albeit stressful situations that, anyone besides my parents can surely see, really don't matter... (more)

California Supreme Court: Bloggers not responsible for defamatory posts

By J.T Dabbagian, published on Nov 22, 2006

...blame them? With these sites as big as they are, and with their money, they are big targets for a lawsuit. Libel laws permit the person being defamed to sue the person who wrote the offending comment, as well as the site used to express the comment, as well as the publisher. In terms of Broowaha, it would mean the reporter, the site, and its web host would be sued. Google, Amazon, and other companies wouldn't want that. They have multitudes of comments on their sites, and one comment could have obliterated them, should the ruling have been upheld. It is the liability of the author ... (more)

Twos and Fives

By AM Nelson, published on Nov 10, 2006

Absent from BrooWaHa are my first two articles. This is because I have sold them. I offer encouragement to submit, extend, and try. I continue to write and submit to BrooWaHa. I explore different styles, ideas, and ways of expressing the world I see. I'm learning to edit. The instant feedback is priceless for impovement. Although my popularity has recently declined, I believe this honesty from readers and contributors will strengthen my work. So thanks for the twos and the fives. I aim to please, but sometimes miss. But I do have ten cents a word! (more)

New Kid On the Block: Is BrooWaha The Answer to LA's Newspaper Woes?

By Ariel, published on Nov 5, 2006

...LAT. The OC Register and the San Diego Union-Tribune are both offering buyouts. The Weekly is in it deep (Jill Stewart is a big news, but has anyone caught on to the fact that they've laid off all the fact checkers?). What's an LA Newsie to do? Take the news into you own hands, brother. BrooWaha, an interactive online "citizen newspaper," was recently started up in LA by Israeli/Parisian Ariel Vardi who wanted to "create an unbiased, reliable source of local and global news written by a large community of amateur writers and journalists." It's rough right now, but we think we see... (more)

So You Want to Be a Well Read Writer

By Hassassin, published on Oct 20, 2006

...hit Shift+F7 eight or nine times. In any case, if you plan on developing a style and a following, you’re going to have to start early, and stay consistent. The issue hit home when I thought about writing a second article for this online publication. My first splash in the Broowaha pool was one of your typical TMZish stories picking on a sloppy celebrity, which—I’ll be honest—is a good call if you’re trying to get some quick hits to up your popularity. Now this would be all great if you plan on following Paris Hilton around for the rest of... (more)
