Is there something in the water at Slate?

Far be it for me to mock the sacharine critics at the Slate but they beg for it. Here is  Slate film critic Dana Stewart on the MJ movie  “Cut to me in a screening room in late October, weeping my way through a stripped-down performance of “Human Nature” that brings out a whole new meaning in the song.” Even if it’s true is it really what you want to tell your readers? I mean, it’s not a blog, it’s an online magazine.

A little later on Ms. Stewart adds these words of wisdom, “This Is It is one of the best documents of live performance that I’ve ever seen”. Doesn’t she do this for a living? What is she talking about? What live performance? Doesn’t that imply an audience? Or at least an extended song not intercut by different performances.

It boggles the mind what is considered criticism in 2009.
