West Wing Has Lost It... Again

Tonight's episode was completely over the edge -- they are now supporting Castro! Fidel couldn't have asked for a better piece of propaganda if he had written it himself.

This isn't the first time they've dived into moonbattery. Their attempts at dealing with the Middle East have been almost as offensive. Then there was their libelous assertion that AIPAC was on "their side" of the aisle. Anyone who has ever attended an AIPAC event knows they are nonpartisan. They know that if you choose a side (republican or democrat), you could be out of favor with the government for four years. Israel is too important, and they realize that. Even worse -- they claimed AIPAC was almost glad there was a terrorist attack. I think the show needs to be voted out of office or just aired on CNN.

I don't know if you ever listen to Larry Elder. He has been following this show like a hawk. Law and order has some one sided political episodes as well.

Ramon Estevez's "politics" sealed my viewing strategy ... FWIW

Anything originating from Hollywood needs to be viewed on its merit or lack thereof.

Ummm, folks, this is fiction!! It's entertainment, no?

gindy, not a big Larry Elder listener but that's cool he's doing that. L&O usually seems to support the war, etc.

SA, if I allowed the politics of actors in a program to rule whether or not I watched something, let's just say I'd probably have far more computer time. ;)

Marty, I disagree with that assessment actually. It's not that simple. I believe this particular show sees itself as truly influencing their audience. They do programs TO make a point. I know my friends who are huge fans of the show feel it is "their" voice, preaching their ideals and beliefs. So having them say we should play ball with a brutal dictator, after all we want to be able to buy those swell cigars again.... just screams to me they've lost their minds.

So, what do you think the answer is to this problem of tv shows airing fictional political positions that are contraindicated?

The answer? Expect people/bloggers to point out when they do something said blogger finds is bad.
