We need lawsuits — and we need them yesterday — against publishers like Amazon who are hiring snot-nosed college grads to “edit” classic books by retroactively removing “sensitive content.”
Dr. Seuss, Roald Dahl, Ian Fleming — even George Orwell, who warned us about this kind of crap — I really don’t care if their descendants are fine with “sensitivity readers” censoring these books. Leave the damn stories alone.
It’s especially egregious to alter an e-book (talking about you, Kindle) after it’s been purchased:
I suppose this means nothing is safe. Music, movies, TV shows … all of them subject to the whims of woke “editors.”
Lawsuits, please. Yesterday.
I am going back and forth on this show. One of the early episodes, 2 or 3, had a completely arbitrary bit of MAGA-bashing, when the heroine is listening to the radio in her car. There was no narrative reason for the scene, other than to trumpet to Trump supporters: We here in Hollywood think you suck.
On the other hand, the fourth episode, with Chloe Sevigny as an aging rock star, had a truly brilliant final reveal.
Scott Adams has been cancelled. OK, he’s one guy.
But if this poll about race relations that Adams was referring to is accurate, how is that not a much, much bigger story?
Yup, what she said.
