Let SAG be SAG

| 1 Comment

Blogger Greg Dewar writes that the Screen Actors Guild has been besieged with complaints that Ronald Reagan's portrait is not displayed with other past presidents of the guild. Except that it is, he says.

According to a good friend at the Screen Actor's Guild, it seems our truth-challenged bloggers and talk show hosts out there have been peddling a lie to their listeners, and it's creating all sorts of headaches for the Guild...I can personally attest to the total falseness of said lie - I have attended events at SAG's main offices, including one at the James Cagney Conference Room. When you enter the room there are portraits, all identically sized, of every former president of the union - including such notable "liberals" as Ronald Reagan and George Murphy. What a tremendous waste of everyone's time, all caused by a nice big lie told by people who claim to be our Moral Guardians.

Also, reader P.L. sends this screen grab from the L.A. Daily News website showing a web editor's second-worst fear: a dummy headline and type that reads, "This is text is filler only and it's here just to fill up the space...."

The DN headline now reads "Goodbye, Gipper."
