Damage control begins on the Larry/Lana Wachowski controversy!

Posted by Jason Triplett Thursday, September 06, 2007

So it seems this story is more news worthy than many originally thought. In the last few days, this story has exploded across the internet, radio, and television in what has to be described as a wildfire of controversy.

Amoung the venues reporting the story are Fox News, who neglected to even link back to the original source. Now not that I care or anything, but what that also did was blind their readers/viewers from the truth of the article, such as photos and other large respected venues also reporting the same thing.

All Fox News did was talk to Joel Silver, who simply stated that Larry was still a man.

Well, duh! Joel Silver is the main money man behind Speed Racer (as well as all the Wachowski's previous films). He is simply afraid of the backlash this controversy could have on his upcoming children's film. Let's face it, the majority of parents would not take their child to see the film if tey knew it was directed by a transsexual. Church groups of course would have their own protests.

That's not to say the film still wouldn't do ok, assuming it didn't just outright suck of course, but this is certainly not the type of press they were aiming for.

So let's all thank Joel Silver for the expected denial, regardless of all the photos (not just the ones shown on this site), other venues, and eyewitness reports.

And to Fox News, shame on you. As one of the largest news venues in the world, you should know that it is disrespectful and wrong to not link your sources. But unlike you, I link mine. Just like I linked you over a year ago when your same reporter did a story on this very thing, yet today he is "shocked"? Get real. Faux News...
