Rule #1 Of Conservative Media: Don’t Suck

Iowahawk  and Lisa DiPasquale echo Ben Howe in making a basic point that we have not yet internalized:

So, to paraphrase Ben Howe’s point, if you want to make a good conservative movie, first, make a good movie. The same rule applies to humor: funny first, politics second. When it comes to gauging the impact of a satire bit, 100 praises or retweets from fellow conservatives aren’t as valuable as a single grudging “I hate your stupid wingnut politics, but I laughed.”

We don’t do this, because we don’t study the arts, and we don’t study the arts because we think them namby-pamby careers. Because artists are overwhelmingly progressive, conservatives don’t want to study the arts.

We need to get over this.

One thought on “Rule #1 Of Conservative Media: Don’t Suck

  1. Then again… Australia’s film ‘industry’ is larded to the back teeth with degree-toting filmmakers. And year after year they make movies that only their mothers will see – and even they have to be bound and sedated.
