Gruding and dismissive

Posted by Celia on July 11, 2003

Hi,

Could anyone help me with the bracketed sentence?

(Insofar as acknowledgement is given to entertainment features in the press, this tends to be grudging and dismissive), as if such contenct detracts from the central political role and purpose of the press.

Thanks a lot
