Pundits vs. critics
First, it was movie stars like Barbra Streisand and Sean Penn pretending to be political pundits.
Perhaps inspired by this example, political pundits decided to become movie critics. The movie critics apparently didn’t appreciate the competition, and so now famous critic Roger Ebert‘sWeb site (www.rogerebert.com) is taking to task two conservative commentators for their taste in films.
In a column by Mr. Ebert’s editor, Jim Emerson, visitors to the site are asked to “try to guess which of two venomous, blonde-tressed scribes wrote blurbs about contemporary movies that may or may not have been used in the ad campaigns. Is it Ann Coulter? Or Debbie Schlussel? Or does it matter?” This is followed by excerpts of comments about such movies as “Brokeback Mountain,” “Munich,” and “Good Night and Good Luck,” by Miss Coulter and Miss Schlussel.
At her own Web site (www.debbieschlussel.com), Miss Schlussel responds: “So does this mean Ann and I can now have our own movie review show?”
