Anti-war Actor Lashes Out
by AAP NEWSWIRE Tuesday April 15, 2003 07:15 AM


Anti-war activist and actor Timothy Robbins reacts with anger...

Speaking from the lobby of the posh Beverly Hills Hotel last night, anti-war activist and actor Timothy Robbins lashed out at the news media, accusing them of "promoting lies" over the pilot of his new television pilot.
The pilot, Americas' Secrets, is currently being promoted to major studios, and co-stars friend and fellow activist, Martin Sheen.
"The pilot is completed and has plenty to say and is not some snow-job as many of you have suggested. And the rumor of Susan Sarandon playing a harem manager is just pure garbabge perpetuated by some gossipers."
Robbins insisted that Ms. Sarandon is not even in the pilot, a fact confirmed by her spokesman.
NBC executive, Barry Moore, confirmed, however, that his studio declined the pilot.
"It's too controversial and the anti-American sentiment is just too strong. We couldn't find a sponsor for this type of program if we looked for a hundred years".

You may be right, after all look at what that criminal scum bag actor Ronald Reagan did for America. To bad HE didn't just mind his own business and stay the hell out of politics.

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but it is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or anyone else, but it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."

-- Former president Theodore Roosevelt, May 7, 1918, when President Woodrow Wilson was trying to stifle dissent as America was waging World War I.
