Reporter Finds Hyperbole Hard To Swallow

February 25, 2005

Michael Hiltzik, writer for the Los Angeles Times, is upset with the news media over their apparent acceptance of the claim that 70’s porn film and recent documentary subject, Deep Throat, is the most profitable movie ever released. He maintains that in order for the film to have earned its purported $600 million gross, every American alive in 1972 would have had to have seen the film twice. Unfortunately, Mr. Hiltzik failed to take into account the financial impact of the all-American pervert. With the futile hope of quelling an insatiable appetite for sexual deviance, the American pervert has the uncanny ability of viewing a single triple-X feature up to an estimated one thousand times. Never underestimate the power of porn.
