Sometimes you just have to laugh. The LAT assigned three reporters to investigate the voting membership of the Motion Picture Academy. The story ran big with multiple pages and graphs.

The gist: the Academy is too white and too old. Lord knows, this issue keeps me awake at night.

What they never asked about was politics.

I’d bet that 80% or more are liberal Democrats. These are the people who tell America stories, who actually shape the public’s understanding about the role of business, about environmental causes and about history.
