5. What the Cheney? The ridiculousness of this quote:
<<But the rush to sling mud is gaining momentum, and "Farenheit 9/11" marks the polarization of yet another form of media. One medium after another has found it profitable to turn from information to entertainment, from nuance to table-thumping.>>

This quote makes sense, if you are talking about what rush limpaw was doing in the 90's -- pretending to inform while table-thumping.

But is the writer suggesting that (gasp) movies are now becoming.............entertainment??? I had noooo idea.
