Better late than never and it look like the Gay Mafia in Hollywood is being forced to reverse the tide:
There's a familiar adage that recognizing you have a problem is the first step toward recovery. And Hollywood certainly has a problem with discrimination against conservatives.
As I detailed in my new book, "Primetime Propaganda," Hollywood insiders routinely discriminate against conservatives, believing them to be untalented hacks and political barbarians undeserving of a paycheck.
I spoke with top executives, writers, and producers in the industry who agreed that discrimination is common – and some even celebrated it.
But many in Hollywood continued to deny this truth. Marta Kauffman of "Friends" fame – whom I interviewed, and who told me that her writers room was made up of liberals – dismissed such criticisms were “silly.”
Patrick Goldstein of The Los Angeles Times said that such accusations were largely unsubstantiated, despite the tape I released.
Now, however, the worm is turning. Last week, for the first time, Hollywood openly acknowledged that it has a discrimination problem against conservatives.
As The Hollywood Reporter reported, the Caucus for Producers, Writers & Directors, a major industry insider honor society, passed a resolution in the wake of revelations springing from my book.
The resolution amended the organization’s charter to stand against discrimination based on “political ideology.” It was approved unanimously; only a few weeks after the Caucus refused to pass such a resolution, claiming that it was a “non-partisan” organization and therefore could not stand against political discrimination.
What prompted the reversal?
Public pressure from the Caucus’ conservative members, who resigned from the Caucus after one of its top members, was caught on tape stating that he was happy conservatives are blacklisted in Hollywood. Lionel Chetwynd, multiple Emmy nominee and Oscar-nominated screenwriter of The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, and Norman Powell, producer of 24 and former CBS Television executive, walked out of the Caucus.
