I was shocked to hear that John Singleton is gone. I was so pleased that he asked me to sign for him to get into the Directors Guild. I was honored to do so.

RIP John

I am profoundly sorry for any pain or misunderstanding I caused by not choosing my words more carefully about Michael Jackson and his victims, because the words as printed do not reflect my true feelings. I didn’t mean to dismiss the trauma these boys experienced in any way. Like all survivors of sexual assault, they will have to carry this for the rest of their lives. I feel deep remorse and I hope that James and Wade know that I … Read more »

Fueled by a weak economy, increasing tax breaks and heavy tax sheltering, corporate income taxes have reached an historical all-time low. According to the Congressional Budget Office, these revenues will remain at very low levels, even after the economy has recovered and possibly after the 2002 and 2003 tax bills have expired.

According to Citizens for Tax Justice, Bush’s 2002 and 2003 tax bills gave corporations tax breaks that estimated a total of $177 billion in fiscal years 2002-2005. The … Read more »

In his weekly radio address a few days ago, President Bush told us, “America’s economy is strong and getting stronger.” It’s an election year, so of course that’s what he wants us to believe. Bush wants us to think that his tax cuts have done more than just increase the federal deficit and put money back in the hands of millionaires and billionaires. He wants us to think he’s doing something to help the working and middle-class Americans struggling to … Read more »

In all the talk about the Reagans TV miniseries that was supposed to be shown on CBS, reality and fiction have become blurred. That account of Reagan’s presidency and marriage was always designed to be a fictional movie based on reality – not a documentary, not a news piece.

It’s ironic that the larger fabrication is not this fictional movie with actors, but the real-life distortion of the truth told by this current president and members of his administration. The … Read more »

The right wing has, over the past few decades, made a strategic decision to claim that the media has a “liberal” bent so that they could shift the news further to the right. Turning on television or radio would clue anyone into the obvious fact that this myth simply isn’t true and hasn’t been for a long time. Here are some facts:

I am deeply disappointed that CBS, the network that in 1964 gave me complete artistic control in creating television specials, now caved in to right wing Republican pressure to cancel the network broadcast of the movie The Reagans. (And I say MOVIE – because this is NOT a documentary – it’s a television drama.) The movie will now be aired on Showtime, where the difference in viewership is in the millions.

One can only imagine the kind of pressure that … Read more »

2003 has been such a tumultuous year already … Now we have the publicized

weapons of mass destruction and falsely implied that there were strong
connections between al Qaeda and Iraq. Looking back, however, it is

CEOs get away with lying to us. The president steals such slogans
as “Leave No Child Behind” and then cuts funding for schools
serving low-income children. The president told us he was against

It’s always upsetting when my words are taken out of context.

Here is the truth. When I started working on my 1976 movie, A Star is Born, I tried to get my friend Sydney Pollack to direct it. I hired Frank Pierson to rewrite the screenplay, but then he told me he wouldn’t do a second draft unless he also directed the film. And since Sydney was unavailable and we had to start shooting, I had to agree to … Read more »

I cloned Sammie once when she died… yet I keep hearing I cloned her two times. You can get a litter of puppies from one cloning… and that’s what we got. I also read that I cloned her in Korea… also untrue. It was in the USA. The cost was half of what they say!

I explained my reasons in this article which I feel I must share again.

To clarity misinformation in a story issued by local Los Angeles television station, KABC, the nature of cloning occasionally results in the birth of a litter rather than a single animal. The cloning procedure in this case resulted in a litter of four beautiful puppies, three of which survived. The KABC story was inaccurate in it’s headline which stated that Ms. Streisand had had beloved Coton de Tuléar, Samantha, cloned twice. The fact is that in using the DNA of … Read more »

When I do an interview, I like to be quoted accurately. I also expect the truth to be told, with facts checked.

This is why I’m reluctant to give interviews without having quote approval. In last week’s Variety article, they mistakenly made it sound like I didn’t want to be in Funny Girl! What??? I fought hard for that part! How could they make that mistake? I loved the character of Fanny Brice (they even misspelled her name Franny).… Read more »

Larry Kramer does not need me to publicize his beautiful play. It stands on its own. For the last time – I will answer his complaints, which rewrite history.

When I saw the play in 1985 I was very moved and immediately contacted Larry to acquire the rights. After going through several drafts with Larry, I hired another writer to develop a screenplay that was faithful to Larry’s play — but adapting it to make it more cinematic. It was … Read more »

Lift your lamp of hope a little higher
Burn that flame of freedom
Just a little brighter please

Oh, Lady Liberty

As the anthem plays let’s sing
And raise our voices even louder
Since the real danger lies in the sound of silence
