I got me WOW Cable service here in Chicago, which was Wide Open West, which was Ameritech, which was Illinois Bell in the Book of Genesis.
WOW Cable costs a lung each month for basic and HBO. That means my kids get to watch One Tree Hill, Disney Stuff, and Laguna Beach. I get Turner Movie Classics (TCM). I can not watch American Movie Classics (AMC)as there is more censorship and many more commercials than when Channel 9 ( WGN) had Lynn Burton selling cars during Old Movies.
The History Channel explains UFOs, Gangs that I meet 'n greet on an almost daily basis over near Leo, the DaVinci Code and the smelly basements of the World in History.
There are hundreds of channels and generally nothing to watch. Most Movies getting made and played for our Mall Theatres ( Kerasotes & etc.) stink on ice, but that does not prevent Hollywood from churning out soy-heavy political/social/moral opinion on HBO or Arianna Huffington's Pravda.
Films with real substance are almost non-existent and Film industry professionals who hold opinions and values that are not stridently counter-culture are blacklisted.
Andrew Breitbart, a young guy born during my senior year at Little Flower High School (1969) has opened Big Hollywood and alternative to the America bashing, 'Seth Has Two Daddies and Loving It,' Isreal is Facist, Catholics are Evil and Drugs Are Health Food points of view.
Breitbart is a writer who helped Arianna Huffington develop Huffington Post - named for Arianna with the handle of her husband who was decidely man-directed in his sexual inclinations, but loaded with gelt. Huffington Post is the Hollywood Squares of third tier talent and 40 Watt Political thinking.
Andy Breitbart wrote,"[Left-leaning Hollywood personalities] are uninteresting, they’re vicious, they’re vitriolic, they’re really, really not good people. I’m willing to say that on the record. You could probe them scientifically and anthropologically and prove that they’re not good people....[The Hollywood left] is a stale group of people who are recycling the same old bad ideas that don’t work. Why else would those people go to the stinky side?"
—Meet Andrew Breitbart, self-proclaimed rebel-king of L.A.'s underground conservative movement (interview), 2008.
Why are all those Hollywood Lefties named Seth?
For a look at Underground Hollywood, friends and neighbors, get thee to Big Hollywood.
