More Crushing of Dissent
Apparently CBS stands for “Caught Being Shitty.” Drudge is reporting a CBS statement that they will not be showing the controversial mini-series “The Reagans” starring James “Mr. Streisand” Brolin. The reason?
This decision is based solely on our reaction to seeing the final film, not the controversy that erupted around a draft of the script.
Although the mini-series features impressive production values and acting performances, and although the producers have sources to verify each scene in the script, we believe it does not present a balanced portrayal of the Reagans for CBS and its audience. Subsequent edits that we considered did not address those concerns.
So now they claim to be “balanced?”
Or were they just afraid of a libel lawsuit?
I can hear the howls of “CENSORSHIP!!” now. Tim Robbins might never work again.
