Some Things are not problems to be solved, rather, they are facts which must be coped with over time.

I am sorry but that it is biggest load of propaganda I have seen in a long time. Notice how they say "convicted child molestor" every time they say his name? Yeah, they're not trying to sway the viewer at all :rolleyes:

While of course his actions were wrong that doesn't have anything to do with his work (shitty or not.) It's like that guy who did the Pianist.

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly
From the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see

I think swaying the reader is exactly what she's trying to do. In light of another recent discussion here on the boards, what if she were writing about an unrepentant convicted sex offender who earned praise as a jail guard from his superiors instead of a movie director working with child/young adult actors?

From the article:
Francis Ford Coppola's co-executive producer, Bobby Rock, glibly told the San Jose Mercury News last week: "The film did very well at the box office – that's all that matters to us."
Her message that the botton line is all that counts, despite a lot of warning signs that the boys working with this man could be in real danger shows that some people in Hollywood have some sick priorities.

I hope she sways a lot of people's minds.
