Great Idea: A Film Project Worth Supporting
Those of you who have read my essay The Crisis in the Arts know how strongly I feel about the battle for the culture.

I feel — to paraphrase Andrew Breitbart — that GOP fund raisers and operatives work us up into a panic every couple of years by telling us the fate of the nation rests on the outcome of this or that congressional race. We pour our money into their campaigns — and, meanwhile, the left plays the long game of eroding the American way in novels, in music, on television and at the movies.

Rather than let that happen, the mainstream media stayed away from one of the trials of the decade. Here's a picture of the empty courtroom seats reserved for the press:
