« How to fix Measure 37 | Main | George Bush is so irrelevant, he’s not even wrong »

January 21, 2007


Well, creator Joel Surnow, who gave $2000 to Rick Santorum last cycle (from opensecrets.org), appears to have slowly been removing himself from the writing over the years. He wrote the overwhelming majority of the first two seasons but only a handful of episodes per season since (ref: imdb.com). He doesn't appear to be credited with any this season, but he's still the executive producer. Much as I enjoy the show, I suspect as the season ramps up, Jack will overcome most of his new-found sensitivity and 24 will once again become the giant piece of neo-conservative propaganda that it's always been.

"Poniewozik accurately captures how “24” is no
longer (and, really, has never been) a conservative

Great, so 24 is a *liberal* pro-torture show.
I feel *so* much better now.

What if Fox put out a left-leaning show where
the hero was a racist? or wife-beater?

I bet you would *not* be singing the praises
of such a show. Yet for some reason torture
is ok?
