What is it with the media on this? On one side they will praise Mr. Heston on his great acting abilities and some of the all time classic movies that he has been a part of. Then they get to his later years as a conservative and NRA leader and they treat it like he suddenly changed into a bad guy (yes, this was to be expected)
May I suggest that the media needs to look at it’s history better? Charlton Heston did not change from the great man and actor that worked for civil rights and did great movies as he aged, the county changed on him. He stood for equal rights, and all the rights RECOGNIZED by the bill of rights all along, it just became un-hip when the hippy liberals took over the media to support them. So, all I can say to you media folks is that Mr. Hesaton did not change, he was a great man and patriot from the start. He fought for civil rights and the rights of us all. It is you folks in the media that changed and not for the better. . . . Try something new for a change – go back to reporting the facts as they are, not as you would like them to be. . . . .
