The People v. the Media Elite

Forget Blue versus Red states, the Peoples Choice awards reflects a schism between grassroots passion from both sides of the political spectrum versus the disdain of the news elite. The big winners were "Fahrenheit 9/11," which won the favorite movie award, while Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" won in the favorite drama category-- both films the news media (if not all movie critics) treated as trailer trash. I actually put both films on my best of the year list, so I can bask in my bi-partisan populism :)
