Description

This critique of the anti-religious, pro-violence, unpatriotic and amoral entertainment industry examines, with facts and statistics, how Hollywood bigwigs have broken faith with the public. They are creating movies, television and popular music that exacerbate every serious social problem, from teenage pregnancy to violence in the streets. Despite dwindling audiences and financial loss, Hollywood refuses to reflect - or even respect - the values of ordinary American families. Medved asserts that Hollywood's alienated ideological agenda is harmful not just to the industry's own interests, but to the USA at large.
