GUEST,Claymore BS: West Wing: Goodman kills prez daughter (60* d) RE: BS: Goodman kills prez daughter 30 May 03


I think a quick quote from Andrew Sullivan's column in todays Washington Times may say it all:


"What liberal media? II

    In fact, more and more journalists and media honchos are admitting they have a problem. Here's an extract from a discussion on Mr. Howard Kurtz's CNN media show, "Reliable Sources," last week. Mr. Kurtz was asking liberal commentator and screen writer, Lawrence O'Donnell, why there are no credible Republicans in television drama. Roll the tape:
   
    "KURTZ: One thing these programs have in common, conservatives are practically invisible. President Bartlett in The West Wing is a Democrat. Martin Sheen, in fact, made anti-war ads before the invasion of Iraq. "Mr. Sterling" is a California liberal based loosely on Jerry Brown. Why aren't there any Republicans?
   
    O'DONNELL: You will never get that TV show. You'll never, ever get the Republican TV show. The Writers Guild of America, my union, is at a minimum, 99 percent leftist liberal and, like me, socialist. And we don't know how to write it. We don't."
   
(Hey I didn't make this up... it's there for all, in black and white).
