In June, The Hollywood Reporter released its list of the most powerful people in entertainment. This group controls the media, which arguably wields the greatest power over American minds. It is telling, yet unsurprising, that an analysis of these movers and shakers’ political leanings revealed a striking liberal bias.
The Democratic National Convention would not be complete without a group of liberal Hollywood celebrities anxiously warning that humans are threatening the planet. Avatar director and eco-hypocrite James Cameron premiered his short environmental film, Not Reality TV, at the convention. In addition to blaming floods, droughts, fires, and other natural disasters on human-induced global warming, the film also criticized Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for calling global warming a “hoax.”
Rush Limbaugh has stated several times that the assassination of John F. Kennedy ushered in the era of modern liberalism.

Ready or not, here it comes: the TV fixation with sexual infidelity. The upcoming shows this fall more than confirm a lust for forbidden love on the screen – or so says The Hollywood Reporter.
The Hollywood Reporter (THR) revealed the trend in a recent article by citing shows such as Showtime’s “The Affair” and HBO’s “Open.” THR’s Lesley Goldberg highlighted the fascination, noting, “Forbidden love seems to be in the air at television networks as infidelity has become the latest theme to sweep development executives off their feet.”
Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres will host the 86th Academy Awards next year on March 2, 2014. The pick is a natural fit. DeGeneres is popular, likeable and experienced, having previously hosted the ceremony in 2007.
But more important, her presence will appease women and gays while dousing the Academy’s reputation as “an old white man’s club.” And that’s not the opinion of some stodgy conservative group – it comes right from The Hollywood Reporter’s awards analyst.
