All's well that blogs well. I received a call from a representative at Slate PR, and quickly learned Daytime Confidential being left off the list of approved soap outlets for Daytime Emmy coverage wasn't on them. Veteran soap opera scribe-turned-journalist Sara Bibel will in fact be covering the event for us.
Here's hoping next year NATAS will ensure the daytime television genre's most influential outlets don't have to go through so much drama simply to cover the show. Deja vu isn't always the most enjoyable of experiences.
