Netflix is belatedly concerned about losing conservative viewers with it’s multiyear, multi-project deal with Barack and Michelle Obamas to produce content.
According to the Hollywood Reporter:
At an industry event Tuesday, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said the network’s production deal with Barack and Michelle Obama, announced last week, does not represent an organizational shift to the left.
Sarandos said the Obamas will be producing “entertainment,” not news, programming as part of the multiyear deal.
“It’s not The Obama Network, it’s not the MSNBC shift,” he said at the Paley Center for Media in New York. “There’s no political slate to the programming.”
But, Sarandos noted, “it’s hard to argue there’s not a left lean to the creative community.”
I guess those cancellations are starting to come in. The Obamas don’t know anything about “entertainment.” They know a lot about left-wing propaganda. That’s what they, and Netflix, will be doing.
They also know a lot about making money. The deal is said to be worth some $50 million.
