Yesterday Premiere critic-columnist Glenn Kenny disputed Nikki Finke‘s recent claim, as stated in an Elle magazine interview, that she her campaign against torture porn was somewhat successful in shutting the sub-genre down.

In response to which Finke posted a response this morning to Kenny, to wit: “Didn’t your dumb-ass movie magazine go out of business in the U.S. because (a) it sucked, and (b) it sucked up to Hollywood so pathetically that even the movie biz lost respect for it?” In response to which Kenny replied, “Hey, great to hear from you, Nikki. Say, are you ready to file that Ovitz piece yet? When did we assign it to you — 1997? Stay classy!”
