Wouldn't CBS make more ad money & get better ratings by actually AIRING and supporting Sharyl Attkisson's news pieces on the Gunwalker scandal?


I guess fiction is safer to their world views.

CBS Films picks up thriller script

Marc Maurino's original script follows ATF agent's descent into corruption

By Jeff Sneider

CBS Films has pre-emptively purchased rights to Marc Maurino's original script "Inside the Machine."

ContraFilm brought the project to CBS, with company principals Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson are attached to produce.

The action thriller follows an undercover ATF agent's journey into the heart of the Murder Machine, a vicious cartel ruled by a criminal mastermind. As the strain on his family mounts and he finds himself increasingly seduced by the power and violence of his undercover persona, the agent must determine how far he will go to serve justice.

CBS Films' VP of Production Mark Ross and creative exec Ryan Conroy will oversee for the studio. Creative exec Alex Church brought the project to ContraFilm.

Maurino is repped by UTA and Circle of Confusion, while Flynn and Vinson are repped by attorney Adam Kaller of Hansen Jacobson.

Don't email me again


To which I responded:

Don't worry. I'd hate to be responsible for wrecking your Hollywood world view too. Probably put you in rehab or something.

Vanderboegh, OUT.

With the BATFE, wouldn't ascent into corruption be more plausible and accurate?

I guess this is supposed to be biased and slanted to make us, the sheeple, feel pity and sorrow for the trials and tribulations of the poor, poor picked on hard working BATFEces agent over his tireless efforts to strip citizens of their rights as he attempts to nab the Bad Guys -- oops! But the Bad Guys get away to Mexico.

Hollywood will hammer it into something to fit their liberal agenda. I don't recall anything in my lifetime coming out of the Left Coast Film Festival that was remotely pro gun.
On a similar thought:
It seemed odd to me that of recent weeks the murder and mayhem news from Mexico has been subdued. No longer do I see daily reports of gun related violence from south of the border. I thought to myself, "Maybe they all decided to play nice."
Then, knowing the tactics of the liberal media, I did a Google search "Mexico Murders". The time and date stamps on most of the search results dropped off rather quickly about the end of February toward the first part of March. It seems the MSM has turned their spotlight off.
Now when did the news about the Gunwalker scandal begin to break open?

You cannot descend into a place where you already situated. However, you may jump up and down if motion itself is the objective.

Yes, Kurt. But it should be spelled: ass-scent.

I'm quite certain the upper echelons at BATF exhibit that standard canine behavior when they get together. It helps to identify which nether region requires the greatest amount of oscultation.

"Don't email me again" (In bold yet!)

I don't know about you but when I saw that response I was so scared I almost wet myself!

You better not write him again Mike or he'll Italicize it too.

What a puke.
