A few highlights of stories I covered in the past seven days:
Hollywood is stepping up to the plate when it comes to giving the Prop 8 Trial a higher profile.
James Cameron offers to help with the BP spill, but he has to explain who he’s calling “morons.”
The FCC took Fox to task for some horseplay on “American Dad.”
Rand Paul got told to stop his Rush to bolster his campaign with rock music, while Senate candidate Chuck DeVore lost a big court battle in his use of Don Henley’s songs.
Robert Redford and other filmmakers came to the defense of “Crude” filmmaker Joe Berlinger in his effort to fight a Chevron subpeona, while there were some inconvenient truths about BP’s new ad blitz.
And, two campaign items I didn’t get to this week but should mention:
Lee Fisher, Ohio’s Democratic lieutenant governor who is running for Senate against Republican Rob Portman, raised money at the Santa Monica home of Brad and Susie Krevoy on Thursday, with tickets starting at $250 per person.
Patrick Murphy, congressman from Pennsylvania, raises money at the home of Rick Jacobs on Monday, with tickets also starting at $250.
On the lobbying front, Rosario Dawson, Amy Smart and Rachelle Lefevre joined reps from Environment California in Sacramento on Tuesday to push for an Assembly bill to ban plastic bags.
