The liberal director of The Washington Post-touting film The Post (2017) Steven Spielberg has not kept silent about his disdain for President Donald Trump, and neither has his wallet. Liberal filmmaker Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw have contributed $3,500,000 collectively to liberal outside spending groups so far this cycle.
The Discovery Channel's six part documentary series "Why We Hate" which was executive produced by Steven Spielberg premiers on Sunday on the Discovery Channel. So do you have any idea which person is being focused upon by the Daily Beast as an example of perpetrating hate? Of course you do. It is the Big Bad Orange Man aka President Donald Trump.
If there’s one thing to admire about Hillary Clinton, it’s her persistence. She persistently fails. She and Bill bombed their recent speaking tour. She failed both times she ran for president (when both times the DNC poised her to win) and she failed as Secretary of State. Now she wants to fail as a Hollywood producer. According to Bloomberg, Hillary Clinton and her media groomed daughter Chelsea plan to start a film and TV production company. Apparently, CNN (Clinton News Network) isn’t enough.
Pair “Trump” with “Immigrants,” “Minorities,” or “Nationalists” and you are well on your way to constructing a leftist clickbait headline that will send the internet into a flurry of excitement, virtue signaling, and speculation. But legendary directors J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg are now trying to shatter the internet’s expectations with (shockingly) a non-Trump combo: “Lena Dunham” and “Syrian Refugees.”
Psst. Want to hear a joke? How about the one where Hillary Clinton -- you know, the woman who wasn’t going to “Stand By Her Man” until she did and enabled her husband’s sexual abuse and philandering -- claimed to be a women’s rights advocate? Hilarious, isn’t it? While a joke for sensible people, Hillary has been quite insistent that she stands on the shoulders of the giants of the women’s movement.
These are interesting times for the legacy of Ulysses Simpson Grant. On the one hand, Ron Chernow’s 2017 biography started or furthered a reputational rehabilitation of the 18th president, whose administration was tainted with corruption (though Grant himself was never implicated).
Hollywood will use any chance it gets to spew liberal talking points on air.
In an interview with Jon Snow of Channel 4 News, a British outlet, director Steven Spielberg tried to draw parallels between the present administration and the Nixon administration as portrayed in his film, The Post. Spielberg defended former president Richard Nixon, blamed President Trump for fake news, and, of course, gave a speech about why he thought Oprah should run for president.
Steven Spielberg has made a new movie glorifying The Washington Post and how it rallied against Richard Nixon and the Vietnam War in the Pentagon Papers court fight of 1971. It’s simply called The Post, and everyone is drawing a comparison between Nixon's difficult relationship with the press and Donald Trump's. The media, of course, were guaranteed to gush over this movie that polishes their historical apple. Time magazine called it “a superhero movie for real grownups.”
Meet Husam Sam Asi, a BBC TV host and founder of ukscreen.com. Asi recently interviewed The Post stars and wasn’t satisfied with throwing the screen legends softballs. He hunkered down and challenged them with more substantial queries. For example, he reminded Meryl Streep and Steven Spielberg that President Barack Obama flexed his might against journalists via the Espionage Act.
This year for Christmas The Washington Post is getting a rosy movie named after itself. The Post film, due out Dec. 22, dramatizes the paper’s 1971 decision to publish the Pentagon Papers which revealed the White House had been lying about the Vietnam War. The film was produced by Participant Media, a media company funded by left-leaning donors that often creates left-wing films.
Variety film critic Owen Gleiberman sounded a little like Chris Matthews when he "felt a shiver of anticipation" at the new "Trump-timed" Steven Spielberg movie project, mythologizing The Washington Post in 1971 pushing to expose the "Pentagon Papers" to underline the "futility" of the Vietnam War, which Gleiberman proclaimed part of the "liberal catechism."
Gleiberman hoped "If there’s a new wave of movies that matter, it won’t just mean freedom-fighting media/political dramas like The Post." He complained political movies like this are seen as elite-cinema Oscar bait, not as profit-makers.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has garnered a vast Hollywood following. Of the top 50 wealthiest celebrities, at least nine have thrown their support behind Clinton, and are using their influence and money to promote her campaign.
