TV Executives Admit in Taped Interviews That Hollywood Pushes a Liberal Agenda

From 2011: Hollywood Reporter  . . . 'Kauffman also acknowledges she “put together a staff of mostly liberal people,” which is another major point of Shapiro’s book: that conservatives aren’t welcome in Hollywood. 

"Maybe that’s because they’re “idiots” and have “medieval minds.” At least that’s what Soap and Golden Girls creator Susan Harris thinks of TV’s conservative critics. 

"However, the ranks of dumb right-wingers has dwindled, according to Harris, whose video has her saying: “At least, you know, we put Obama in office, and so people, I think, are getting – have gotten – a little bit smarter.” 

"Some of the videos have executives making rather obvious revelations, like when Larry Gelbart and Gene Reynolds talk about pacifist messages in M*A*S*H or when MacGyver producer Vin Di Bona says anti-gun messages were a recurring theme in that show. 

"But an additional video has Di Bona, who also created America’s Funniest Home Videos, becoming remarkably blunt about his approval of a lack of political diversity in Hollywood. When Shapiro asks what he thinks of conservative critics who say everyone in Hollywood is liberal, Di Bona responds: “I think it’s probably accurate, and I’m happy about it' ” . . .

11 Hollywood Conservatives Who Have Faced Discrimination Here are two:
Angie Harmon. The actress told Fox News that when she criticized Barack Obama, she had to deal with numerous rejections for work due to her conservative beliefs. Many on the Left smeared Harmon as a racist.
Dwight Schultz (formerly of the "A Team")Per Shapiro, producer Bruce Paltrow overheard actor Dwight Schultz voicing praise for Ronald Reagan, prompting Paltrow to call Schultz "a Reagan a**hole." Months later, Paltrow noticed Schultz auditioning for St. Elsewhere, a TV series that Paltrow was producing, and asked what he was doing at the audition. When Schultz told them he was auditioning for one of the roles, Paltrow declared, "There's not going to be a Reagan a**hole on this show!"
