Audio: Biting the hand that promotes you

by Jeremy Hooper

A day after he bellyached about the "gay Oscars" to anyone who would listen, Moveiguide's Ted Baehr went on "Liberty Live" radio to again talk about standing against that pesky liberal Hollywood. This clip, while not specifically gay, made us laugh:

So why did this make us laugh? Well, because "Liberty Live" airs on AFR Talk. And who runs AFR talk, you ask? Well that would be the --wait for it, wait for it -- AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION. The AFA. The very model of the "what are you gonna tell me about family?" groups to which Ted is referring. The key family association that has been trying to influence American entertainment and media for three decades (and that was actually founded in the lat 70's because of TV shows like "All in the Family").

But for once we actually agree with Ted's words, as we too know that these family associations have a "hidden agenda."
