Why Won't Piers Morgan Explore Hollywood Violence?

If Piers Morgan is so worried about gun violence than why is he only focused on the abolition of gun ownership rights? We saw that psychotropic drugs are off limits for debate during the Alex Jones interview. What about Hollywood violence? Is that off limits too?

British television presenter, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, gets a sweating, squirming, and seriously-crazy-man rant when he asks this very question to Quentin Tarantino. [Video near bottom of page]

Because it would hurt the people who control the media

meaning those that also are involved heavily in the entertainment business.

Shapiro hit him good too when he brought up that handguns were the major weapon of choice yet they want to go after "assault" rifles. Of course they go after the gun that has the best advantage in a firefight against other long guns...but you can still bet your ass that the handgun issue will be addressed next, WITH that very point that Shapiro made.. They just don't want to spill the beans at this time.

"Hollywood movie distributors spend...

about $4 billion a year to buy paid advertising (30-second TV commercials, newspaper ads, etc.) and over half that total is placed on broadcast and cable TV, which are the main vehicles for advertising movies to audiences." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Film_promotion

So that is what Tarantino was crabbing about?

He paid for the interview as an advertisement? Creepy. I used to love Tarantino and his films. After that interview I am really creeped out by him.

No. Or at least, not to my knowledge.

Sorry I wasn't clearer about that. Getting on morning talk shows or late night television is FREE ADVERTISING for THE GUESTS plugging their films or books. It's more or less understood between the interviewers and guests that that's why they're there. THAT is what Tarantino was complaining about. He was mad that the interviewer went "off script" (the understood script). He was openly admitting: this isn't a REAL interview... it's about ADVERTISING... PLUGGING ME AND MY FILM... and, remember, I'm the big shot here, not you... so ask me the right questions or I'll ruin you!

I was explaining why PIERS, i.e., CNN (or ANY OTHER program/"advertising medium" didn't discuss certain issues, such as anything that might throw a BAD LIGHT on Hollywood, for one. Hollywood receives "free advertising" via interviews; but it also pays a fortune to run commercials, all the movie trailers you see. For this same reason, the media is loathe to cover topics such as the known dangerous side effects of prescription drugs. Saying something controversial about an advertiser represents a "conflict of interest." The hosts of tv programs know who's paying for their salaries.

For the past 20 years, Wall street has controlled Hollywood and very few if any Conservative viewpoints have been depicted on the screen. True art allows choices but Wall Street only allows their values of sex and violence.
