Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth about Guilty Pleasure TV

powells.com — Reality Bites Back by Jennifer Pozner: Nearly every night on every major network, “unscripted" (but carefully crafted) “reality" TV shows routinely glorify retrograde stereotypes that most people would assume got left behind 35 years ago. In Reality Bites Back, media critic Jennifer L. Pozner aims a critical, analytical lens at...

Amy Poehler's New Film "They Came Together" Is Over-the-Top Stupid in the Best Possible Way

bitchmagazine.org — Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler play painfully stereotypical lovebirds in rom-com spoof "They Came Together." If NYC single life actually resembled every bad rom-com ever, I'd be telling you about my ultimate meet-cute right now: me, a feminist media critic alone at the Brooklyn Academy of Music to review a movie for Bitch, him a handsome, witty stranger reading Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine.

Corporate media’s rape problem: Supporting the stars, ignoring the charges

salon.com — Corporate media has a rapist problem. Whether it's Pitchfork , Rolling Stone , Entertainment Weekly, Vibeor even Jezebel promoting R.
