Obama's NEA: Pushing Artists to Be Political. And Then Lying About It.
Last week, I blogged about Patrick Courrielche's first-person account of a National Endowment for the Arts telecon in which the agency and others implored artists to create work that would further the White House's political agenda.
That was outrageous, and so is the NEA's response to the Washington Times, who called the NEA's media person to find out more about the call. The short version? NEA spokesperson Yosi Sergant said the invites "didn't come from us." Which makes you wonder where this invite came from:
Via Big Hollywood.
