Six Rules For Boycotts That WORK

Posted: March 15, 2017 at 9:58 am   /   Business, Entertainment, Features, Politics, Specials, Top Stories

As a rule, I boycott boycotts.  I usually don’t like them, and think they’re counter-productive.  This is because lately, they just haven’t worked.  The Left tried to boycott Chick-Fil-A—remember what happened?  People still wanted to “Eet Mor Chik’n”.  Or Hobby Lobby?  Still standing tall.  Or Duck Dynasty?  Phil stayed on the air. “But Eric, that’s […]

ELDER: The Oscars and the Activism They Left on the Cutting Room Floor

Posted: March 2, 2017 at 8:40 am   /   Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Imagine the result, with hundreds of millions of people watching worldwide, if Hollywood turned its creative firepower on real problems. Instead, viewers watched wall-to-wall Trump-bashing. They should have spent less time bashing Trump and more time making the sure presenters got the correct envelopes. If so, the Oscar gaffe of the century — reading the […]

The Culture Current: My Letter Of Advice For The Academy Awards

Posted: February 27, 2017 at 2:47 pm   /   Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories

This is an open letter to the Hollywood power players that run the Oscars.  I harbor no real illusions that it will be read by them, any time soon.  We aren’t exactly The Hollywood Reporter.  God willing, if I should become the major player in the film industry I desire to be, they’ll look back […]

Please don’t. […]

Last weekend, the Writer’s Guild of America held its awards ceremony.  And like the rest of this year’s awards season, it got political.  So naturally, dear readers, I’m here to offer my $0.02—and believe me (to quote The Don), this is more important than anything Meryl Streep’s said, for the simple reason that screenwriters are […]

Posted: February 14, 2017 at 1:06 pm   /   Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Sometimes our side does things right, in the Culture War.  Breaking Bad is considered one of the greatest series of the modern era—Brian Cranston creating one of the most memorable television characters in recent history: Walter White, aka Heisenberg, alias The One Who Knocks.  And yet, for a time, it wasn’t a mainstream hit—just a cult […]

Among the different discussions following every Super Bowl, a prominent source of debate seems to always be the game’s commercials. This year, in addition to the typical opinions about which ads were good or not, the underlying politics of the companies’ messages became a hotly held conversation. The two spots that seemed to cause the […]
