Southpaw and Moore.

A telling comparison of Auntie film critic David Stratton's response to the politics of Michael Moore (four stars for Fahrenheit 911) and the politics of South Park's Team America (one star).

The difference? Moore attacked Bush with lies and innuendo. Team America satirises Hollywood leftism (among other targets) in its own terms.

On Auntie, one's OK, the other's not to be watched.

Andrew Bolt has other examples of Stratton's unapologetic, and apparently unconscious, political categorising of plots that pass and fail Auntie's political test.
