Hollywood and Democrats Blindsided by the Film ‘2016: Obama’s America’

Stunning the liberals in the entertainment industry as well as the Democratic Party, this weekend a documentary, “2016: Obama’s America,” not only made it to the eighth spot with $6.3 million, but it was able to show the best per screen average of any of the films in the top ten, landing at $5,717 per screen.

Having a relatively small budget by Hollywood standards and an independent distributor (Rocky Mountain Pictures) to boot, “2016: Obama’s America” effectively tied with the seventh placing film, which was Sony’s action packed “Premium Rush,” featuring star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Priming the Obama Pump via the Entertainment Media

President Barack Obama has been ducking the Washington press, and the journalists responsible for covering the White House are not amused.

In stark contrast, the president has made himself readily available for a number of entertainment-oriented interviews, and he is evidently making the Hollywood rounds to discuss everything but the all-important issues that are confronting the country.

You have to feel a bit sorry for the DC press corps as the typically self-aggrandizing endure the sting of being publicly jilted by Obama and his reelection cohorts.

A Predictable Reaction from Hollywood to the Paul Ryan Pick

President Obama’s Hollywood friends have donated a whopping $12 million thus far to the Democratic National Committee and the president’s reelection campaign.

Prominent Hollywood celebs George Clooney, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Harvey Weinstein have hauled in tens of millions more for the president through their fundraising activities.

Now the entertainment industry just wrapped up yet another campaign fundraising event, which was held at pop star Gwen Stefani’s mansion in a gated Beverly Hills community and featured First Lady Michelle Obama.

Recent comments from some of Hollywood’s more vocal left-winged celebrities have been remarkably shrill toward GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Reality Shows Exploit Children

When first created back in 1972 by NASA and the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, The Learning Channel made its cable television debut as an educational network.

In 1991, The Discovery Channel acquired The Learning Channel, which is now called TLC; however, the public perception of the cable channel was then, and for many who have not had a recent opportunity to tune in still is, primarily that of an educational network.

The idea of today’s TLC mainly being educationally oriented could be considered absurd, perhaps even laughable, in light of the dubious content of its current programming lineup.
