The Real Story Behind the Reagan Movie
By Cliff Kincaid
November 25, 2003
Some opponents of the entertainment industry believe they scored a victory with the announcement by CBS President Leslie Moonves that the network was transferring a movie smearing former President Reagan from CBS to the Showtime cable channel. One of several controversial aspects is a depiction of Reagan as someone who believed that people with AIDS get what they deserve because "they that live in sin shall die in sin."
The rest of the article is below.

Friends and associates of Reagan say that he would never make such a statement. The statement is harsh and doesn*t take into account the innocent victims of AIDS. But the fact is that many homosexual men who engage in promiscuous sex or drug abuse suffer from the disease and die from such behavior. This is a controversial view only to those in the militant homosexual-rights movement who don*t want to believe the truth about the health consequences of their own lifestyle.
The interesting fact, as noted by Cal Thomas, is that the CBS Reagan miniseries is produced by Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, two homosexual activists who will be honored with an award in Hollywood next March at a dinner sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, a homosexual liberal lobby. The group says Meron and Zadan "are being honored for their sensitive and positive portrayal" of homosexual characters in numerous television projects, including the new ABC television series, "It*s All Relative." "It*s All Relative" is about parents whose son gets engaged to a woman who*s been brought up by two gay men. She "has not one but TWO dads," says ABC.
It is a sign of the times that a major controversy has developed over putting words into Reagan*s mouth that make him out to be unsympathetic to homosexuals. In this case, of course, it is unfair to attribute such a statement to Reagan because he never uttered it.
Newsmax reported that CBS*s decision to pull the plug on its miniseries came on the heels of a letter to the network from Marc Christian, described as Rock Hudson*s "ex-lover," who complained that the film*s portrayal of the 40th president as anti-homosexual was false.
In a letter to Moonves, Christian said, "The notion that President Reagan was a homophobe strikes me as silly beyond belief. Not only did he have several gay men on his staff when he was Governor of California, he called my lover, Rock Hudson when he was on his deathbed just weeks before he died of AIDS and wished him well and voiced his and Nancy*s concern and prayers." Christian speaks affectionately of Hudson as his "lover," but he won $5.5 million from Hudson*s estate because Hudson, who had AIDS, subjected Christian to the risk of contracting the disease.
The letter was made public by Christian*s friend, described by Newsmax as "conservative commentator Tammy Bruce." But she is much more than that. She is a lesbian feminist who has been tapped by California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as a member of his transition team. It is ironic that, in defending Reagan against CBS, conservatives have resorted to quoting homosexuals and lesbian feminists.

I respect Cliff Kincaid. He has done a lot for AIM, but sometimes he sounds almost homophobic.
