Ever noticed that a movie’s reception suffers when it appears on RottenTomatoes, for political reasons? I have, and noted on here for example that Death Wish was being trashed by extremist nutcases on RottenTomatoes. The aggregation site, which can kill a movie or even franchise due to its position on Google alone, helped sink the movie with its 15% disapproval rating.
So how is it that obscure blogs with 40 total readers per week can contribute to ‘RT’, but others with 1000x cannot? According to the site itself, they have a Critics Advisory Committee which:
… works closely with the Rotten Tomatoes team to evaluate candidates. The Board, made up of several critics and industry professionals of diverse backgrounds and prominence, will meet regularly to consider potential Top Critics, which will be designated on a rolling basis.
So who is on this ‘Advisory Committee?’ Here is the list of six:
So, let’s see. We have Monica Castillo, sufferer of Trump Derangement Syndrome and writer of wailing feminist reviews. The purple hair is a bit of a trope, an added disappointment only for its predictability.
This person, who advises on which writers’ reviews get exposure on the site, Tweets the following:
A lot of white critics out there don’t seem to read POC writers and it’s showing! 😬

We also have David Fear. Another sufferer of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Old David likes to spend his time on Twitter targeting a specific ethnicity and gender (the white male, of course, who else?) then expects readers to digest his views on cultural relevancy with a straight face.
Then we have Jessica Kiang. From here, it appears to be getting more vitriolic. Let’s actually post the next Tweet, which reveals Jessica Kiang to be a racist.
They just have to be better than the worst of the white men who currently occupy those positions. And that, my friends, is a fucking low bar.

That, is a racist Tweet. And remember, RottenTomatoes boasts that its ‘Advisory Committee’ celebrates ‘diversity’. Jessica takes it a bit further than her colleagues merely attacking white males, she also hates white women.
Loving all these joyous celebration videos, but could do with a few more pics of white women in red hats crying, please come through.

There’s more, search for yourself.
Eric Kohn also lets down the ‘diverse’ mission statement, by revealing himself to be another a raging liberal with acute TDS.
Poor old Amy Nicholson is also sick to the back teeth of… you guessed it, those fucking awful white males. In fact, according to her, this person who ‘advises’ a website on who should be allowed to contribute, she openly wants to undo forms of leadership comprised of a race she disapproves of:
From the '60s on, politicians studied how to turn themselves into movie stars…..and movie stars figured out how to turn themselves into politicians.

Finally, if you were hoping that Gil Robertson would make this 5:1 in terms of bias, it’s a no. Old Gil is obsessed with race, too. Including ‘white privilege’. Another raging liberal.
Conclusion: RottenTomatoes’ apparent liberal bias is confirmed by the words of the people on its ‘Advisory Committee’, tasked with influencing who gets to post reviews of movies on their site.
