Goldstein's analysis of TV movie critics was most interesting. I would like to add that the only real requirements for this job are lacking in all . . . common sense and good taste.
The majority of the critics are adolescent in mentality and generally left wing in their politics. They pander to teen-age imagination which is is exploited by the studios who are in the same business.
As you noted in the article indirectly, most of them couldn't get a job in the real world.
