Well done, Mr. Shapiro.
Last month Lionel Chetwynd and Norman Powell resigned from the Caucus for Producers, Writers & Directors after the publication of Ben Shapiro’s book Primetime Propaganda, which charges a history of intentional liberal bias in entertainment programming.
But Chetwynd, for one, says he is looking to return to the Caucus after its steering committee passed resolutions that explicitly oppose discrimination based on political ideology.
The org’s Aims and Objectives have now been expanded to state that the Caucus “opposes any industry practices with directly or indirectly discriminate against individuals on the basis of, including but not limited to, gender, race, sexual orientation, political ideology, religion, physical disability or age.”
Chetwynd’s protest was triggered by recorded interviews a caucus member and other content creators gave to Shapiro for his book. In his resignation letter, Chetwynd said the remarks showed that they were “quite comfortable endorsing discrimination against those whose political philosophy was not rooted in the reflexive Leftism of Hollywood.”
