In other extreme news, I read an article online yesterday about a man who videotaped Hollywood movers and shakers about the left-leaning bias in Hollywood. Some of the bias was pretty egregious, as when the very talented Dwight Schultz didn’t get chosen for a part on “St. Elsewhere” because he was a fan of Ronald Reagan. Other quotes are from people who say frankly that the culture of Hollywood is biased to the left.
This article made it sound as if everyone who admitted the bias was in favor of it, when all some quotes showed was that the person speaking acknowledged the bias.
So I hope that the people who read the article, see the tapes, and write the columns that protest the bias will carefully consider whom they vilify—just because somebody admits that there’s bias doesn’t mean that that person is practicing it.
Don’t go to extremes.
