Why Hollywood Makes Liberal Films

Jason Apuzzo explains why Hollywood can keep on cranking out left-wing propaganda films despite the fact that most Americans find them repulsive. The answer is in profit margins. Liberals in the urban centers and foreign viewers will turn out to see cheaply made lefty films in sufficient numbers to make them extremely profitable. They don't need Red State America to turn a nice profit. Of course, as Apuzzo notes, the neglected Red Staters themselves constitute a nice potential audience to be tapped by conservative film makers [assuming they exist].

Behind all this, of course, is a fact we must always keep in mind when discussing movies. No film today attracts more than a tiny fraction of the viewing public. They all are aimed at target audiences rather than the general public.
