Threats fly over Hobbit document release

“I can categorically assure you that if the above information was released and a similar situation occur in the future, neither myself nor Wingnut Films would be inclined to help the Government again with such a candid level of advice and opinion,” reported The Hollywood Reporter.

It was not clear whether the “I” referred to Peter Jackson.

Oh, so it’s us (the government) who are helping Wingnut Films, fancy that, I rather thought the boot was on the other foot.

"Chris Dodd is a lying weasel."

We???re not going to mince words. Chris Dodd is a lying weasel. It is hard enough to swallow that the senator had no idea that he got preferential treatment on his home mortgages that saved him thousands of dollars. Or that, simply out of friendship, a wealthy New York man, who was later convicted in a huge stock swindle, picked up much of the cost of a condo Dodd bought in Washington; or that the stock swindler???s business partner out of a love of Ireland did the same for Dodd when the senator bought a waterfront house in Ireland.

Now, Dodd flat-out has lied about his role in legislation that is allowing employees of American International Group to receive $400 million in bonuses despite receiving $173 billion in taxpayer money to keep the failed financial giant alive.

Perhaps Chris Dodd’s outrage is that of one who has served his paymasters well, finding that when he becomes a paymaster, the game is over.
