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.

LYRICS

By Desmond Child.

Lady Liberty
Lift your lamp of hope a little higher
Burn that flame of freedom
Just a little brighter please
For all the world to see
And still believe

Oh, Lady Liberty
Show us how to stand and feel a little prouder
As the anthem plays let’s sing
And raise our voices even louder
Since the real danger lies in the sound of silence

Lady Liberty
I see you rise above the crashing waves
Bearing witness

If you cross this administration you get your head handed to you. If you open your mouth and tell the truth like former White House Economic Advisor Lawrence Lindsay did when he told the Administration that the Iraqi war was going to cost between $100-$200 billion dollars, you get fired. If you disagree with the President, like Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill did one too many times regarding the President’s policy on tax cuts, you get canned. If you claim that … Read more »

The Republican Party and the Bush administration like to keep the public uninformed and in the dark as to what they are doing. This president has had fewer press conferences than any other president in recent history. It is difficult for the country to stay properly informed when we are constantly being fed half truths and lies of omission by the current administration. Every time they send a representative out to speak to the public, he is armed with the … Read more »

I have always felt strongly that it is important to know about the man behind the President. And it seems that every four years I try to remind people that Dick Cheney, who is just a heartbeat away from the presidency, has a voting record that clearly reveals his right wing extremism. See below for a recap on Vice President Dick Cheney’s voting record.

Dick Cheney voted in the extreme right minority:

America was profoundly changed after the September 11 attacks. We went from a country motivated by hope to a country controlled by fear. For the last several years, feeling neither safe nor secure, Americans have lived in extreme anxiety of another impending terrorist attack. I think that as a result, most Americans sought out their faith and reaffirmed their conviction in God. President Bush and the Religious Right’s greatest political weapon has been perpetuating fear. Because of the heightened climate … 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 »

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 »

Very good. All three movies garnered multiple Oscar nominations. Ms. Streisand wasn’t nominated for a directing Oscar for “The Prince of Tides,” which received seven nominations in all, an omission that Read more »
