Spielberg's backing bombs

June 18, 2007

Re "Blockbuster endorsement for Clinton's campaign," June 14

Nothing demonstrates more clearly the importance of money over ideas in politics than the brouhaha about Steven Spielberg's endorsement of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.). Does Spielberg know anything about foreign policy, governance or political philosophy? He's terrific at making movies and lots of money. The money is the key. Your story said nothing about Clinton's ideas that attracted Spielberg; only the fact that he could influence huge sums of money for Clinton made news. As usual, money makes news.

Because directing movies has as much to do with politics as screen doors and submarines, why are we supposed to care who Spielberg endorses for president?
