    Obama protects Hollywood

    Team Obama talked about a broad “national dialogue” about violence after Adam Lanza’s suicidal shooting spree. Instead they conducted a chummy off-the-record dialogue with their Hollywood and New York media-company campaign donors. The corporate flacks repeated all the usual moth-eaten lines to Biden about how parents can use their unreliable, self-evaluating ratings system.

    These are lies. And that system has never worked, and will never work so long as those responsible for producing this violence continue to be in charge of rating it.

    Biden’s meeting with the entertainment industry was a cozy D.C. lobbying confab. Guests included former Senator Chris Dodd, now in Jack Valenti’s place at the Motion Picture Association; former Senator Gordon Smith, now heading the National Association of Broadcasters; former FCC head Michael Powell, now chief lobbyist for cable TV; and an unnamed representative from Comcast. Let’s just guess that’s their chief lobbyist David Cohen, who hosted a $1.2 million fundraiser at his home with Obama in 2011.

    Before he signed his executive orders on guns, Obama conducted his usual mudslinging in front of the children. “There will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical, all-out assault on liberty,” he warned. “Not because that’s true, but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. And behind the scenes, they’ll do everything they can to block any common-sense reform and make sure nothing changes whatsoever.” He was, of course, referring to Fox News.

    Do you know who wants to make sure nothing changes forever, and “common-sense reforms” never surface for their own financial gain and higher ratings? The makers of violent TV, movies, music, and video games. And do you know who just won re-election by constantly soliciting these blood-and-gore producers like a 24-hour ATM?

    On the very same day Hollywood’s lobbyists met with Biden, the ABC drama “Scandal” carried a graphic three-minute torture-and-beating scene. Viewers saw a man being waterboarded, his nose being broken, and his face pounded into a bloody mess, with blood spattering on the walls. This is ABC’s idea of “moral integrity.” They were so “tremendously sensitive” about it that they rated it TV-14...because eighth-graders apparently wouldn’t find this disturbing at all.

    Obama and Hollywood want you to know they care deeply about the children.

    I was disgusted to see the President use elementary school kids as props for his gun safety executive orders press conference.  But your reference to the TV show Scandal is on at 10:00 on a school night, 14 year olds should be in bed by 10:00 PM.

    So are you saying that you want the Government to control the movie industry?  That it's OK to stomp on 1st Amendment rights, but stay far away from trying to limit a person's ability to hunt down and kill little children?

    I've been watching violent movies, T.V. and listening to Heavy Metal since I was a young kid. It never affected me one bit. It's entertainment, there has been violence on the screen for a long time.

    We used to watch Moe punch Curly, poke Larry in the eyes and slap numerous people, multiple times. Even at 6 years old, I knew it wasn't real. It was made for laughs...and we laughed like hell. 

    Hard to believe a normal kid would think Freddie Krueger is a real person. Who's kids grow up and become ax murderers because the watched all the Friday the 13th movies??? Shear nonsense.

    What's funny is these are the same people who have no problem showing violence up the yin-yang on "CSI:Akron" and torture on "24"...

    ...but the mere sight of bare breasts or naked buttocks send them screaming to the FCC to censor and fine networks over the sight of Janet Jackson's nipple.

    You can't be at all serious.

    No they absolutly have 1st amendment rights but, minors especially under 17 yr olds should be limited in what they are allowed to see and be marketed for.


    Its the same as saying cigarette sponsors shouldnt target kids.
