Veteran Movie Producer on Being Conservative in Hollywood and Vetting the President
Veteran Hollywood producer Gerald Molen ("Schindler's List," "Minority Report") says he never hides his politics while making movies.

Molen, a Big Hollywood contributor, shared his thoughts on that change as well as his upcoming documentary, "2016: Obama's America" with the publication. The film attempts to vet Obama, a job the mainstream media failed to do during the 2008 campaign, he contends:
