Spike (Lee) TV: Talking Barack
The Reporters Who Cover Television are keenly interested in asking any African American they can get their hands on at Summer TV Press Tour 2008 what they think of Barack Obama's presidential campaign and the likelihood of him succeeding. That's the case because filmmaker Shelton Lee, aka Spike Lee, predicts that as of Inauguration Day 2009, "you will have to measure time Before Obama and After Obama."
Among those things touched by the "seismic change in the universe," he said, is the entertainment industry. Really.
"The gatekeepers are not people of color and that's how things are going to change," Lee said.
"Because there's only a few people...who decide what films get made and don't get made, what goes on television and what doesn't."
