“Newsroom” star Emily Mortimer: Americans are dangerously uninformed


Emily Mortimer believes making TV shows qualifies her to speak on geopolitics.

"The Newsroom's" Emily Mortimer calls the Tea Party a "lunatic fringe," and says Americans fall too easily for lies

The star of failures such as 'Our Idiot Brother' (yes really that was the title) and the biggest flop of the year 'Newsroom' thinks the typical American is a moron and of course she and her Hollywood pals are enlightened.



This British tart admitted she became a US citizen as a 'tax dodge'.


Despite the long list of Hollywood idiocy, she really believes the typical American is a drooling fool but she wants to live in our country and make millions reading lines somebody else wrote.

    Why on earth do we let these foreign scum bags become citizens?

    Why on earth does she want to be one of us if we are fools?

    Why do white liberal millionaires hate the typical American?

    Our society is in decline and somebody should encourage Mortimer to kindly bugger off to Europe.

    Actors do use their Star status and people are so blinded by their popularity that they tend to listen to the Actors and Actress's. Wake up people they are just people themselves.

    I'll vote for the typical American over a typical Hollywoodite any day. And those like Emily Mortimer should not be allowed to open their mouths about anything other than, maybe, the toothpaste they use. Have never figured out why they think they know more than those of us out here in the hinterlands who read newspapers, watch multiple news shows and read actual books about politics. It will be a blessing if one day, we should all be so lucky, they just appear on talk shows and talk about their toothpaste, their hair stylist, makeup artist, which gym they go to and leave the rest of what goes on in the world alone. But, on this particular issue, I am not holding my breath and am no longer waiting for the big one to hit California and float it away.

    Actors believe their own media hype. They really believe because they play so many roles, they are more intelligent than the average person. In reality, they're more like this:

    I think Hollywood actors believe everyone easily makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, and then doesn't pay any tax on that money. They live in a bubble and are unaware of the real world.

    The typical American lacks seeking out the truth, however they have Hollywood beat. The Hollyweirds live in their own delusional bubble. The typical American needs to resist believing bogus polilical spnin like Obama's the private sector is doing fine.

    Seems far too many in Hollywood are suffering from a condition I call ..
    "Delusions of mattering" (or adequacy .. )

    (especially those whose desperation for any kind of publicity are willing to open mouths .. insert both feet just for some mention in the biggest advertising agencies of them all .. the promotional msm .. )

    Really tough choice. Neither would be that well versed in current events. People magazine won't win any awards for substance. The typical American doesn't even register to vote and probably far better versed in team lineups and individual stats than anything else.

    Hollyweird actors are dilussional. Their entire career is based on being someone else and basicly a lie. Many of them actually buy in to Alec Baldwins line in a well known commercial - "It's Ok, I played a pilot in a movie" and think this 'experience' gives them some insight unknown to us mere mortals. The majority of them are truely pathetic and need to get a real job.

    Edit - Damn. should have read the top comment before using the pilot reference.

    As a former bit actress I saw the problems with stardom. After it is achieved, it is very hard to think of leaving the lime light. Stars fight against it with everything they have. Part of staying on top is socializing with "the crowd" and looking like you are still in. Directors and fellow actors are very outspoken about being liberal and discussing their ideas. As a conservative you either keep your mouth shut, or you get black listed. If you are struggling to get noticed and they find out you are conservative, forget it.

    As a result of trying to be in the "in crowd" in order to get jobs, and those who have made the "In crowd" the political discussions and support are very one sided. There is no balance, and the actors feed upon each other's emotions and build upon the imput of like minded actors, and with no dessention of opinion, the agenda grows stronger and more idealogical.

    It's a toss-up... Actors can get closer to the real scoop if they care, as their connections are more intertwined with the upper levels of the goings on than your average arm chair activist.

    Actors are acostumed to repeating what they are told with no thoughts to content.

    Most carry that trait over to their political activities, and repeat whatever their liberal directors and co workers say.

    Typical Americans are either indiferent and pay no attention to politics or understand that everything in politics directly affects them and thus pay very close attention to the words, actions and consiquences of politicians and their actions.

    Hollywood types are generally not uninformed, they're not even MISinformed. They're DISinformed. And they spread their disinformation with the power of Media.

    A large percentage of Hollywood actors and actresses are liberal and really should not use their celebrity status to sound off just to back their democratic candidate...seems like it all about show me the money, like it is a bought election and it very well may be.....
