Hollywood Joins the Fray
Friday, December 27, 2002
An armload of big-ticket Hollywood talent, including some of the folks who brought us Star Trek and the Shawshank Redemption, have signed on to bring American-style programs, and through them presumably, American-style values to the Muslim world. The programs will be funneled through a non-profit group called Al Haqiqa (which means “the truth” in Arabic). It’s led by former Reagan Administration Ambassador-at-Large Richard Fairbanks, and according to him the creators of Al-Haqiqa have had significant success in Tinseltown.
