Hollywood Nepotism Shock Horror

For some reason, a sense of reality has left the entertainment staff—both reporters and editors—at the New York Times. Today's paper expresses surprise at possible Hollywood nepotism. Anybody who is still surprised at that possibility need only look at Tori Spelling's long list of credits, then remember who her dad is.

What is most amusing about the article in question is the odd combination of wide-eyed innocence and dogged pursuit of the "ugly truth." In some ways, it is a possible twisted result of the "crack reporting" of High Society… which itself raises some further twisted possibilities. In any event, the tone of the article does its credibility no good at all.
