His ad hominems aside, Souvignier's scathing critique of this piece is absolutely right. Oram is confusing art, entertainment, propaganda, news, and mass media - perhaps because now these forms support each other in some arenas and have fused in others (eg CNN's coverage of the first Gulf War was entertainment disguised as news which served a propaganda function).
