H’wood’s Gore bore

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

I found it interesting that your recent editorial (“A Guy named Joe,” Daily Variety, Jan. 15) was written as an unflattering piece that focused on Sen. Lieberman’s penchant for trying to reprimand Hollywood.

The irony here is that this was also Sen. Lieberman’s view back when he was the candidate for vice president on the ticket with Al Gore, but Variety Editor-in-Chief Peter Bart was much more concerned then with George W. Bush not winning the 2000 Election but having it “handed” to him by the Supreme Court.

Doesn’t Mr. Bart understand that Lieberman would have been a thorn in Hollywood’s side had Gore won? Or would such anti-Bush sentiment have drowned out the Hollywood suspicion of Lieberman that is touched upon in this editorial? Maybe … until the studios’ and producers’ bottom lines were affected, of course.
