2008 marks the 40th anniversary of Hollywood¿s first major assault on the American audience through an insipid campaign known as ¿value manipulation¿ begun by former Hollywood lobbyist Jack Valenti. Through feature films, television, DVDs, video games, music and the internet, the entertainment industry has pumped-up the volume and intensity of coarse, vulgar and gratuitous imagery unlike anything that has ever assaulted the human senses with an extra dose of social/sexual/political agendas. Author Michael Vincent Boyer, a twenty year veteran of the movie industry, takes the reader deep inside the strategy and mindset of the individuals in Hollywood who are giving you what they want you to see and not what you want to see and hear as ¿entertainment.¿ The Hollywood Culture War explores the Hollywood-Washington connection, Tinseltown¿s New Age gods, the imminent death of hip-hop, Hollywood¿s persecution of religion and sympathy for terrorism and communism, the fight to stop cable companies from forcing new channels on you (and your cable bill), mandatory drug testing for Hollywood industry employees, and an inside expose of Hollywood¿s manipulation of the 2008 presidential election between John McCain and Barack Obama. Finally, the story of one man who took on every major studio in Hollywood and won - with a little help from the president Boyer¿s book comes complete with ¿The Entertainment Resource Guide¿ to help protect unsuspecting audiences from becoming ¿victims of assault¿ at the movie house and your house.
