Programming Intentionally Biased Left: Top TV Exec

Story here.

Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general is notoriously liberal and frequently seeks to shift Americans' cultural sensibilities leftward.  Even though it seems obvious to many of is, it's still a tad jarring to hear a top television executive cavalierly discuss the dearth of conservative-leaning programming on the major networks.  Fred Silverman has been a heavy hitter in network television for decades, holding influential programming and leadership positions at CBS, ABC, and NBC.  Listen as Silverman frankly admits that there's only one ("progressive") perspective in television entertainment today, and how right-leaning comedy programs are simply "not available:"

Here's a hint, CS.
