Borat Used Inappropriately

Registran has a post (Deep Breathing) reviewing an article by a British journalist, and they seem spot on in their critical analysis of the journo’s weaknesses. Lazy writing seems to have ruined the introduction to the article.

As if to prove the point, the 7th comment at the Registran post is by a Jonny The Monkey ignores the article linked to, the issue of corruption in Central Asia, and makes some Borat influenced comedy comments regarding Uzbekistan. At least they are original, rather than verbatim movie quotes. I have to admit when I launched this blog, I did comment at quite a few places that mentioned the film, but only those that were not serious pieces on Kazakhstan itself.
