Questioning a ‘Disgustingly Written’ Brett Ratner TMZ Item

We hate to be the bearers of bad Web news. But catching up to Village Voice editorial fellow Raillan Brookscomplaints about the tone of TMZ’s coverage of Brett Ratner donating to the NYC mayoral campaign of openly gay candidate Christine Quinn, we must sadly inform – there’s plenty more where that came from.

There are basically three tiers of content at TMZ. The website has both feet planted firmly in the gutter; the half-hour syndicated TV show has one foot out on the cleaner sidewalk; and the one-hour call-in block TMZ Live is the most legitimate of all, with Harvey Levin and cohorts intelligently discussing the day’s top stories.

We’ve landed on much worse, past and present, at the TMZ website. And when we do, we usually can’t help but think of the famous observation made by H.L. Mencken.
