Re: “Elvis and Dakota Fanning Have Everyone All Shook Up.

As people begin to actually see this movie, those who chose to condemn the makers of Hounddog before seeing it for themselves and getting all the facts straight are being shown for the idiots they truly are, many continuing to live in denial of the facts. Sean Hannity is perhaps the best example, as last night he interviewed someone who saw the movie at its premiere at Sundance. I forget the lady's name, but I believe she was introduced as a conservative District Attorney and a child advocate for 30 years, so Hannity was a bit surprised when she revealed that all the negative claims about Dakota's infamous rape scene simply aren't true. According to her, all we see is Dakota from her shoulders on up and the guy's arm. There is no touching, and the rape is actually achieved through editing tricks, and not on the set as some have claimed. She explained that it occurs more in the viewer's mind than in the movie. But Hannity was not satisfied, claiming that what she saw was a "sanitized" version, and that he wanted to see everything that was left on the cutting room floor. Um, right, Sean. You haven't see the movie, you weren't involved in the editing process, you weren't involved in the production whatsoever, yet you somehow know what "really" went on. What a jackass. But probably the most disturbing evidence of these people's dangerous mindset is what Catholic League president Bill Donohue, who is pushing for a federal investigation of the film to see if child pornography laws were being violated during shooting, said on CNN yesterday. He said that if this was not Dakota, but some unknown 12-year old actress who was involved in a rape scene, he wouldn't even bother with it. Unbelievable. Obviously, this is all about exploiting Dakota to push their agenda, and has nothing whatsoever to do with the a 12-year old being raped onscreen.
