Hollywood wants a more positive image for abortion

From Brent Bozell and Tim Graham at Townhall:

Rina Mimoun, who scripted an abortion plot for the drama “Everwood” back in 2003, is still upset the main doctor character on the show wasn’t an abortionist, as they wanted. She’s upset that abortion is relegated to a Very Special Episode.

“The goal for all of it — network, streaming, everything — is to stop making it the one-off episode or the arc,” Mimoun said. “It would be nice if it was just part of the conversation and didn’t have to be so special and so earnest and so important.”

Her feminist ideal came on the CW show “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” A woman has an abortion, and the pizza delivery driver rings her doorbell. In response, her son says, “Mom, I’ll get it, since you just had an abortion.”More.

Reality check: Not very likely dialogue, that.

Hollywood probably does not get the fact that the #MeToo revelations have robbed it of moral authority. People may not care what the celebs do but they don’t look up to them the same way either. Abortion chic will probably go the way of the many PC duds currently hitting the sod. There is just so much else nowadays to watch, see, and do, stuff that represents more accurately how real people think.

Star Wars: Meathead Rips DeNiro Over ‘F**k Trump’ Rant

Despite a year and a half of cranking up the volume and upping the F-bomb count, the celebrities who have led the anti-Trump movement are no closer to reversing the results of the 2016 election than they were on the day of the new president’s inauguration.

Rob Reiner: ‘There’s No Line’ Too Far When It Comes To Attacking Trump

“If you talk about things that are racist, then you earned that,” he added. “In terms of Trump, he started his campaign talking about the first African-American president being illegitimate. That’s a very racist idea. You don’t have a problem saying the guy’s racist, if he’s exhibiting racist behavior.”

No, ‘Star Wars’ Isn’t Failing Because Of Hateful Trolls. It’s Failing Because Kathleen Kennedy Has Done A Garbage Job.

On Monday, former Hollywood Reporter editor Marc Bernardin took it upon himself to explain the ongoing failure of the new Star Wars lineup to set the world aflame. His answer: the fans are the problem.

Calling your audience a bunch of deplorables didn’t work well for Hillary Clinton; it’s not going to work well for Disney, either.

Jody Foster Wants To Disarm Humans And Give All The Guns To Robots

Who said liberal celebrities don’t have valid opinions? Well, actually actress Jody Foster did and then proceeded to say she would like to see a world where humans are disarmed and robots have all of the guns. I don’t think anyone in Hollywood has a good take on the 2nd Amendment, but this is easily the worst. If our Founding Fathers could not have imagined modern weaponry, as liberals claim, then they sure as hell weren’t thinking about the possibility of killer robots.

The move comes after series star Roseanne Barr made a comment on Twitter Tuesday morning referring to former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett as looking like the offspring of the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.” Jarrett, an African-American, was born in Iran to American parents.

Goodbye, Netflix

…Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content.  And in a way, I guess that’s correct.  But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision.  Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back — the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a propaganda arm for radical left-wing political actors
