Evil Empire


The whole Reagan miniseries fiasco shows why the old Hollywood-network system cannot crash and burn fast enough. And not because of the movie's content, as bad and mean-spirited as it may be.

It is just stunning that network suits would dump something which was presumably exactly what they wanted. They knew the producers' track record, someone read the script. Yet as soon as the show emerges from the big media info-tainment bubble everyone scatters. Pathetic.
