More personal political views being preached to watchers
12 December 2009 | by andimaggieSee all my reviews

I have watched all of the Law & Order series since the beginning of their conception. What I have noticed particularly over the past couple of years is that they are becoming more and more far left wing. I am actually an Independent and agree with certain subjects on both sides of the line so I try to base my observations on situations that are blatantly leaning a certain direction. Personally, if I wanted to watch television about politics including right and left wing perspectives I would turn on a news channel or a political talk show. Many shows that are currently being televised have picked a side with the majority being liberal. I am quite capable of forming an opinion about different issues without being lectured by a "alleged" fictional drama. I also find it offensive that Dick Wolf would actually use the names of Limbaugh, Beck, and O'Reilly. That in itself is totally judgmental and self-righteous and would never be tolerated by the far right wing! You can definitely bet on that. Although, that is probably a mute point because I don't believe I have seen too many shows that demean liberals with their demonstrative opinions. There is no debating what line of the fence he leans on and he is also using his show to propagate his own personal views. This is also why Law & Order is becoming very tiresome to watch and it just may have been around quite long enough. Let's have some entertaining shows that don't try to teach the American public the values they perceive we should have. I also agree with the other commenter who states when liberals protest it is "free speech" but if conservatives complain, they are an angry mob. I was under the impression that free speech applied to all citizens of this great country regardless of your political leanings. And I would just one more time like to mention that I don't particularly lean either way but I feel what is good for the goose is also good for the gander. We should at least treat differing opinions with respect if for nothing else the constitution states this right. Thank you for letting me state my first amendment rights!!!
