article imageOp-Ed: Hollywood hypocrites major outsourcer of jobs

By Larry Clifton     Aug 6, 2012 in Politics
Los Angeles - Jonathon Karl, ABC OTUS News, just released a telling piece about those Hollywood dogs who bark for the Obama campaign as sure as the moon shines.
As it turns out, Hollywood, largely a collective campaign account for Democrats, especially for the outsourcer-in-chief, Barack Obama, outsources more than major corporate call centers, presumptively to avoid paying taxes and union wages, according to Karl's astute research.
Tens of millions of dollars heaped on Obama’s campaign by Hollywood stars was used to buy Obama ads hammering Mitt Romney for maximizing profits by shipping American jobs overseas during his time at the helm of Bain Capital, which is at the most, debatable.
Or as Karl puts it, “from George Clooney's house in Los Angeles to Sarah Jessica Parker's townhouse in Manhattan, the Hollywood crowd has been a virtual ATM for the Obama campaign.”
But Hollywood is definitely an active outsourcer of jobs; they’ve been at that act for years.
While Mr. Karl acknowledges that Movie-making is big business, when it comes to maximizing profits, he says the President's top celebrity supporters have benefited immensely from outsourcing, “Hollywood-style.”
