LA Weekly publishes absurd Tom Cruise propaganda

I should have stopped at the headline.

How YouTube and Internet Journalism Destroyed Tom Cruise, Our Last Real Movie Star

The author off the piece, LA Weekly film critic Amy Nicholson, spends considerable time breaking down Cruise’s infamous couch jump on “Oprah.”

The distinction between standing and jumping is small but significant. We imagine Cruise bouncing on the couch — we can even picture it — because the Internet convinced us it happened. The echoing blogosphere screaming “Kills!” and “Jumps!” rewrote over what little of the actual episode people saw.

As if that’s why people think Cruise is nuts. Never mind the zombification of Katie Holmes.

And don’t forget this:

Tom Cruise is the frontman of a dangerous cult. He destroyed himself, and that’s a good thing.

If only we could destroy the cult of celebrity worship exhibited by the moronic lickspittle responsible for this shameless spin job. By pure coincidence, Nicholson has written a book about Cruise set to be published in July.
