Joel Surnow has made Keith Olbermann's "World's Worst" list, he must be doing something right.

Now that the hit show 24 is a thing of the past, creator Joel Surnow has set his sights on the Kennedy Legacy. Surnow is putting together a miniseries about the Kennedy family that will air on the History Channel. Unfortunately, since Surnow is a conservative in Hollywood there have already been people bashing the project.

Surnow responds to critics:

“It’s not fair because they looked at early drafts of script that don’t even resemble the final draft. It was way too early for them to comment on it.

The fact of the matter is, because I’m known as one of the few conservatives in Hollywood, they automatically assume this was going to be a hatchet job. They didn’t look further into it. The writer, Steve Kronish, is a liberal Democrat.

I think part of it was driven by the fact that it’s going to debut around the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s inauguration. For those looking to sustain the Camelot image, they’re worried. But they don’t need to be.”

It isn’t surprising that liberals are terrified that a conservative is at the helm of a project highlighting the iconic family of the Democratic Party. They are afraid the show will rewrite history, of course, because that is what they like to do (see the Howard Zinn project The People Speak).
