thats a bit hard on actors .. i mean films are always made in a way that satisfies the public need.. if people wanted nothing but films like the sound of music then thats all for the most part we would get.. expressing fears about public safety is a separate issue for me

Anyone who goes around preaching "morality" that isn't living the life of a Buddhist monk.

Even being Christian, I have to say the modern-day "church."

His $100m from Qatar's dirty oil money must help this hypocrite sleep at night! Didn't he say last November that dirty oil caused Hurricane Sandy? He should give the $100m to Sandy victims then.Simple.

It seems that Hollywood and celebrities in general tend to be high on my list. They speak out against gun violence while making violent movies, tell us to cut back on our energy usage while living in massive homes and flying around on private jets, and taking up political causes when many of them really know nothing about what the average American is going through.

There are always exceptions, of course, but overall it's an industry that continues to think it's smarter and more enlightened than it really is. Politicians aren't far behind either.

I would agree, but I'd substitute "The Vatican" for "The Catholic Church". There are lots of Catholic Churches that I know of that break with what the Vatican is doing and saying.l

Apple.

A company that once championed contrarian ideas and ideals, now forcing everyone to work through the Orwellian cloud. As well, a company that wins much praise yet whose track record on overseas offshoring and value chain managemnt is about as wholesome as Nike's performance.

The media, of course since humans fuel that I'd say everyone is a hypocrite.    Their faux outrage at violence and smut and milking it for all it's worth.

Religions

Starbucks, mostly their clientele.

I really hope your reference to faux outrage at violence isn't about the reaction to Newtown. The outrage at 20 dead children is authentic, I assure you.
