Dr. Michael J. O’Connell, Healthcare Consultant, Barrington, New Hampshire commented that the media is once again exploding over the issue of gender inequality regarding income. So no better way of making the case than parading out Jennifer Lawrence, the eminent female star of the Hunger Games series et al, who earns a paltry $14 million per film. Apparently that’s not as much as what a star leading man commands. Who knew? What a damn shame.
Why is it, Liberals are so quick to aim their weapons at CEOs and Wall Street tycoons, and the perceived glass ceilings, and yet ignore the conspicuously wealthy in Hollywood? Could it be that what really matters to them is the politics of the fat cats? The horror of a stockbroker earning $200,000 a year…this deserves Liberal protests, chest pounding and screams of outrage. But the fact that Oprah earns $200,000 a month does not cause them a stir. Interesting.
Liberals have always given the entertainment industry a pass on its arrogance and innumerable individual misdeeds, and the industry rewards this nod by donating its celebrity (and celebrity dollars) to Liberal politicians. If Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are truly committed to reversing the earnings’ disparities, as they both claim in their debates, maybe they need to start including those glaring examples that are among their very donors.
