In what critics say is another effort to change the subject from Obamacare’s woes, President Obama on Tuesday gave a big wet kiss to Hollywood and his fundraising friend Jeffrey Katzenberg of the DreamWorks studio for the entertainment industry’s success at exporting American values globally.
Mr. Obama also urged the studio not to glorify gun violence, but he devoted much less time to the subject than he did to praising the industry in general, often in gushing terms.
“Believe it or not, entertainment is part of our American diplomacy,” Mr. Obama told DreamWorks employees at their headquarters in Glendale, Calif. “It’s part of what makes us exceptional, part of what makes us such a world power.”
The president said Hollywood has succeeded at exporting American values around the world by exposing international audiences to movies such as “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” a 1967 Sidney Poitier flick about an interracial relationship, and TV shows such as “Will and Grace” and “Modern Family,” sitcoms that have featured gay characters prominently.
