    Director says he's experienced Hollywood's conservative blacklisting


    Whit Stillman doesn’t want to talk about politics. Ask the famed indie film director for his thoughts about the current Republican primary race, and he politely — but flatly — declines. ...

    Mr. Stillman recalls directing an episode of the TV show “Homicide: Life on the Street.” He had a script he liked, but a rewrite turned a yuppie victim — whose family had been murdered — into “this awful, caricatured yuppie villain.”

    “We don’t necessarily want to do a PR job for them,” he says of the character type. “But we also don’t want to dehumanize them, either.” He objected to the rewrite and is sure he was “blacklisted” — his explosive and unprompted term — from directing television as a result.

    Maybe they could try and name the last time a genuinely conservative person has ever been portrayed favorably in a TV script.

    Or for that matter, a religious leader, a priest, a nun or any conservative side to any current issue.
    “ Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of
    authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made
    to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are
    men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They
    promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
    -- Daniel Webster
