Every so often, as we process the workings of the mighty media, we find examples of work that fails to grasp the subject matter being written about. Such is the case with, Bruce Newman, a journalist for the Mercury News. He posted this story detailing his review of The Two Towers. Even among the Tolkien fans, TTT has met with varying degrees of approval, but rarely have I come across such opinion so lacking in knowledge of the subject matter, and understanding of the themes presented in the story.
Dear Mr. Newman, we the people demand better. Such displays of gross negligence are an insult to our intelligence.
If you have a mind, shoot Mr. Newman an email, letting him know your own opinion. I’m sure he would be glad to hear from you.
