Hollywood: A synonym for sex, fame, and power in a "shallow way"?

Conservatives are not happy with Wikipedia. Apparently they believe the liberal bias in the media extends to media created by... uh... everyone? So in November 2006 they created Conservapedia, an online encyclopedia with "educational, clean, and concise entries." This is how it defines Hollywood: "a neighborhood located in the city of Los Angeles, California. As a lexical entry, it refers to the movie studios once located in the district, and more generally, to the motion picture business. It is a synonym encompassing all the definitions of 'glamour', 'beauty', 'fame', 'sex', and 'power' in a shallow way."

What?! I always thought it was a synonym for those things in a deep way. Like, how Paris Hilton wants to build halfway houses now that she has seen how awful prison is.

In case you're wondering what the "liberally biased" Wikipedia had to say about Hollywood, their entry includes such prejudiced information as the population, the boundaries of the neighborhood, and the median household income.

There's no mention of depth -- or sex and fame -- at all. Shockingly lefty.
