Spider whores

The Pioneer Press devoted one quarter of today's front page to shamelessly hyping the release of Spider-Man 3. "Spidey returns," the headline reads, next to a massive visage of the superhero. "More villains, more action, more romance."

More whoring ourselves out to advertisers.

Diligent readers will note that the much-hyped action flick received a rather unflattering one-star review from Chris Hewitt, who labeled it "tedious," "bloated," and "a bust."
