    Like I said before, it's because they think movie audiences will pay to see it.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    So, you admit that most Hollywood movies are pushing a Liberal agenda?

    It's awful arrogant to suggest that movies with a Liberal lean will sell more tickets than movies with a Conservative lean.

It's not necessarily doctrine so much as a self-sustained culture of Hollywood workers, but not really the executives.
    The execs control the purse strings.

    The benefits aren't broad. They are specific, and more often than not to individuals that tend to fit the Democrat narrative, sometimes even specific individuals.

    The fact that these benefits get enacted at all, for anybody, speaks to the need for them in the first place, and the negative aspects of taxes. The fact that they only go to certain people.... well, now, that is called corruption.

    No.

    I admit that Hollywood executives make the kind of movies that Hollywood executives think audiences will pay to see.

    Hollywood executives are quite arrogant in what they think movie audiences want.

    What's scary is how often they are right.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Wow, how full of the Libbo agenda can a person be to think that only movies with a Leftist lean will draw audiences.

    An interesting pair of films. Bachelor Presidents, well, one officially anyhow during the mid-1990s.

    Yes, but the culture is more to do with the underlings, the creative talent.

    I mean, I share much of your criticism of Hollywood, I really do, but I think this is slightly exaggerated.

    LOL... you are the only one saying that. No one else.

    First, movies are quite profitible... and it is only you saying there is a liberal agenda. Therefore, by your view, liberal movies are big sellers.

    Now, back to your wild conspiracies.
