Eric Alterman responds to Matt Bai's NY Times Magazine article that was part of the Hollywood and Politics series (a series that I found overall interesting, if at times problematic). He focuses his critique on the main stream media's skewed and often negative portrayal of celebrities who involve themselves in politics. Of course if you ask me (and no one does) it all has to do with merging of news and entertainment, and the news celebrities (can they really be called reporters) of TV don't want any other celebrity moving in on their turf.
