The News as Entertainment and Vice Versa

    Th blurring of  what used to be a clear cut demarcation of News and Entertainment has reached its apex during the past three years of the Obama administration. The entertainment capital of the world(Hollywood) is securely  and clearly on Obama's side,  what with  Hollywood  making what  was reported to be a 20 minute paean to his presidency (complete with a Tom Hanks  narration), as prelude to his election campaign. The rabid politicalization  of both the News and Entertainment media could only augur badly to the quality of  and quantity of our national  discourse....a development that is both disheartening and discombobulating.

      Now that the election would soon be in full swing, the marketing machine that is the Obama presidential campaign  could only be too happy to know that the liberal elite media, including Hollywood, would be churning claptrap pronouncements  on the virtues of his presideny.
