Americans unload on Hollywood in Trayvon case
World Net Daily ^ | 4-16-12 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 04/16/2012 8:44:32 PM PDT by ReformationFan

The vast majority of Americans are in agreement that Hollywood and network television are harming the nation’s culture, according to a new survey, which also reveals they don’t think celebrities should be “tweeting” information in criminal cases, such as Florida shooting case defendant George Zimmerman’s address.

The scientific poll conducted exclusively for WND by the public-opinion research and media-consulting company Wenzel Strategies shows almost three-in-four registered voters believe the media are responsible for dragging the nation’s culture down.

The poll revealed nearly 50 percent said Hollywood and network TV have done a “great deal” of harm, while another 24 percent day there has resulted “a little” harm.”

The results are from the national telephone poll, conducted April 9-12 with a margin of error of 3.42 percent.

The questions were asked in connection to the media coverage of, and celebrity involvement in, the Trayvon Martin case in Florida. Respondents also said they strongly disagreed with the practice of celebrities using the social media outlet Twitter to send the address of Zimmerman, the neighborhood-watch participant accused of murder in the case, to followers.

And some 70 percent said they disagreed with the suggestion the “average Hollywood celebrity” understands the lifestyles and values of average Americans.

Further, Americans have no exalted opinion of Hollywood’s elite, with more than half the respondents saying celebrities are of the same intellect as the rest of the nation, and a whopping 4 in 10 saying they are a “little less” or “much less” smart.

Count me among the 4 in 10 who think the drug addled sycophants in Hollywood are much less smart.

They’re court jesters and clowns.

Oh I wouldn’t go that far. They are on par with the average Trayvon supporter in terms of smarts.

If I see one more celebrity strutting their plasticized body parts pretending they are real, I am going to be sick. Everyone knows that almost all of them have plastic surgery. I am tired of this phony world.

They are not much less smart. A peahen that was dropped on it’s head just after being hatched is “much less smart”. Hollywoof leftists are less intelligent than aforementioned peahen.

Now, if people started to boycott the movies these folks make, you would see a change or they will earn a lot less $. I have a list of actors who I will not support because they are left wing loud-mouth idiots. Obama has brought out the worst in those that support him, including Hollywood types.

While there are some very intelligent talented people in Hollywood they are the exception not the rule. The proof being the large number of second and third generation Hollywood “Stars”. Seems much of Hollywood is more about who you are or who you know then ability. Most of Hollywood is pampered idiots and happily Hollywood is losing it’s luster fast.

When most of the actresses and actors have taken off their clothes and sex is the replacement for a original storyline, one is hard pressed to distinguish between the Academy Awards and the Porno awards(dunno the name), you know Hollywood has lost it's luster of days long passed....

Historically speaking, the acting profession(even in Shakespears time) was seen by decent society as just above thieves and prostitution.(often the same)
They came from the the ranks of the societial outcasts. Malcontents of all types, drunkards, ner- do-wells, the lazy, the crazy, criminals, sexual diviants, runaways, .

Nothings changed. The only difference now the pays better...(Thanks to technology)

If I were a guy,I’d pick Joyce DeWitt/Janet Wood over Suzanne Somers/Chrissy Snow.

Poor Janet always gets the short end of the stick.

Miss De Witt has definitely aged more gracefully of the two of them:

It’s kind of odd she wasn’t more popular.

I think Joyce was a much shyer person who didn’t want that much publicity while Suzanne had a huge desire for self-promotion and the limelight.

She also did those sexy L’eggs pantyhose ads in the late 70’s and early 80’s. They are on YouTube if you are interested.

I watch old commercials on YouTube and she appears in several of them.

There were some funny and interesting ads back then. I’m just glad they didn’t have ED pill ads.

Oh, I remember those:

“Nothing beats a great pair of L’eggs!”

Last night on Antenna TV, they aired my pick for Joyce DeWitt’s best episode. It’s the one where Janet realizes Larry and Jack are dating the same girl and she tries to prevent them from finding out. What made it a good comic tour-de-force for her was the fact that she had no blond cohort to help her carry the distaff side of the episode. This was after Suzanne/”Chrissy” left and before Jenilee Harrison/”Cindy” joined the show. She got to be the female comic star of this episode and she was quite funny.
