A film we don't talk about, a film TCM will never be able to air?


Recommended Posts

The new Birth of a Nation;   The L.A. Times is really going after Nate Parker due to his 2001 acquittal on rape charges.    Front page new story,   entertainment section almost daily,  and even an editorial by actress Gabrielle Union in the editorial section (followed up today by a front page story today in the entertainment section related to Union that of course they tie back to the editorial).

 

Union's editorial wasn't anti-Parker but instead about the fact she was raped and how that impacted her playing a character in the film that is rapped.    BUT still it mentions the 2001 case.   

 

Some people are calling for a boycott of the film.

Gone are the days of objective journalism. It's obvious the front page and entertainment section are being used for editorial purposes, too.
