LA Times reporter ventures into ‘Girls Gone Wild’ world

Claire Hoffman of the LA Times has written an amazing piece on soft-core porn Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis.

What is interesting about this story is that it is told heavily from Hoffman’s point of view and in the first person. There’s none of the “this reporter” stuff. The story starts off with Hoffman’s face being pinned on the hood of a car:  “Joe Francis, the founder of the “Girls Gone Wild” empire, is humiliating me.”

Definitely worth a read to examine her writing technique.
