Schwarzenegger Pitches Hollywood Tax Breaks

That, and other news, in today’s Roundup and Recap.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced the first 25 films to get the state’s new production tax incentives, including “Beverly Hill Chihuahua 2,” “Naked Gun 4” and “Dinner for Schmucks.” TV shows on the program include Comedy Central’s “Important Things With Demetri Martin” and TNT’s “Men of a Certain Age.”

He said that studio film production in the state has declined by 50% since 2003 — the year he was first elected. Until the budget crisis, lawmakers had been resistant to passing the incentives program, which is an effort to bring the state into parity with other states.

Lamenting Howard Beale: NBC’s Chuck Todd took aim at polarized media on MSNBC.com. He wrote, “The White House doesn’t want to give Glen Beck a bigger platform or
extra oxygen — especially regarding his remark yesterday that the
president has “a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white
culture” — so they won’t comment, even off record. Beck, after all, is
a radio DJ who somehow ended up getting a national platform to give his
opinion on politics. What’s most amazing about this episode is that
what Beck said isn’t a fireable or even a SUSPENDABLE offense by his
bosses. There was a time when outrageous rants like this would actually
cost the ranters their jobs. But not anymore; if anything, it’s now
encouraged.”
