NewsBusters' Double Standard on Rooting Against Films
Topic: NewsBusters

In a Sept. 6 NewsBusters post, Tom Blumer claims that "far-left Hollywood" is "so upset" with Clint Eastwood's bizarre, rambling lecturing to an empty chair at the Republican National Convention that they're rooting for his new film, "Trouble With the Curve," to fail at the box office.

Why, you'd think NewsBusters would never be so gauche as to root for the failure of a film because they didn't agree with some political aspect of it, right?

Wrong. Back in 2009, NewsBusters' P.J. Gladnick proudly proclaimed the movie "Che" to be "one of the worst box office bombs in film history," on the scale of the infamous "Heaven's Gate." It wasn't true of course -- it wasn't even the biggest bomb of 2009. Gladnick also baselessly posited that a movie's quality is measured by its popularity, which, as anybody who saw "Batman & Robin" can attest, is definitely not true.
