CBS and the Reagan Mini-series

You might be aware that CBS caved to pressure from the right-wing and decided to cancel airing of the mini-series on the Reagans. In part, the controversy stems from the mini-series portrayal of Reagan’s handing (or more accurately, non-handling) of the AIDS crisis, which hit hard during his administration. The mini-series gets it pretty close to accurate, and that makes Reagan look really bad — appropriately so, because he was bad. And the right-wing can’t stand that their Saint Reagan might look bad, so they put the screws to the network.
So network television is controlled by the Republican party. And that scares the living shit out of me.
