ABSTRACT
The article reports that U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama has received financial support from the Hollywood entertainment industry during the 2008 presidential campaign despite his lack of communication with the industry about crucial issues such as excessive sex and violence, intellectual property theft abroad, and the consolidation of media conglomerates. Obama has had support from executives and performers such as David Geffen and Oprah Winfrey even though their taxes would likely increase under Obama.
