In recent years, Georgia has become something of a second home for Hollywood as the state has opened itself up to filmmakers. But ever since the state took a stand to defend unborn life, the liberal elites on the other side of the country have demanded Georgia bend to their will or face a boycott. CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News not only hyped the boycott Thursday, but they also touted that their parent companies might join in.
NBC actually put off covering the on-going tornado threats across the Midwest and East Coast to panic about the spread of pro-life laws. “And tonight, the battle over abortion is being waged more intensely than it has been in decades and on multiple fronts. Missouri is now poised to be the first state in the nation without an abortion clinic,” fill-in anchor Savannah Guthrie fretted at the top of the program.
Towards the end of the report, correspondent Anne Thompson touted how “a similar law in Georgia may cost it lucrative film business.” She then boasted about how “NBCUniversal, Netflix, and Disney all weighing the impact and possibly pulling production from the state.”
