Slant in The Media
A.O. Scott of The New York Times called Slant Magazine "a repository of passionate and often prickly pop-cultural analysis." Slant's reviews have often been the source of debate and discourse online and in the media: Ed Gonzalez's review of Kevin Gage's 2005 film Chaos sparked some debate when Roger Ebert quoted Gonzalez in review of the film in the Chicago Sun-Times; The New York Press quoted another Slant writer, Keith Uhlich, in a review of the Michael Bay film The Island; and Gonzalez, who writes regularly for The Village Voice film section, was recently praised by former Voice critic Nathan Lee for his attention to politics and pop culture in a lively and interesting way.
KillerStartups.com, a web community that reviews websites for both entrepreneurs and investors, called Slant "one of the most influential online sources of news, comment, opinion and controversy in the world of indie, pop and mainstream entertainment."
On January 21, 2010, MovieMaker Magazine named Slant Magazine's blog, The House Next Door, one of the "50 Best Blogs for Moviemakers", and on January 26, 2010, The House Next Door was named one of "18 obsessive, cantankerous, and unstoppable Gotham blogs worth going ape over" by the Village Voice.

Famous quotes containing the words media and/or slant:
“The media no longer ask those who know something ... to share that knowledge with the public. Instead they ask those who know nothing to represent the ignorance of the public and, in so doing, to legitimate it.”
—Serge Daney (19441992)
“The dead fed you
Amid the slant stones of graveyards.
Pale ghosts who planted you
Came in the night-time
And let their thin hair blow through your clustered stems.”
—Amy Lowell (18741925)
