Christmastime for Hitler?

Christmas With the Nazis: WWII Films Proliferate at Year's End Oh, horrid menace of liberal fascism. What is the deadly secret of the Nazis? What secret info will Newsbusters creator & executive editor Matthew Sheffield reveal to us about Hollywood's machinations? (Mostly quotes from this AP item, that's what.)
You could have bet several farms that we were expecting there to be something about the people (or is it a "tribe?") who control Hollywood. (When will we hear the complaints about the number of Anglo dudes in the oil business, or running airlines & auto companies? Ah, never mind.) The big secret of why,
during what's supposed to be the cheeriest time of year, this abundance of stories from one of humanity's darkest hours?
turns out not to be that the You Know Whos are trying to subvert Christmas w/ bummer fare, but
"Much of it is awards-driven," said Paul Dergarabedian, president of Media By Numbers, which tracks box-office totals. "Downer movies come out this time of year as a reflection of the fact that people are vying for Oscars."
As Newsbusters is bent on “Exposing & Combating Liberal Media Bias” we have to peg their audience/viewership, whatever it's called in the still-to-make-a-profit new media age, as troglodytes. Perception of "leftist/liberal elite" media bias in the United Snakes should probably be classified as a psychiatric condition of some type. Or they're just plain dense. But we didn't think WWII/Nazi cinema at this "cheery" time would have to be explained to anyone who can navigate to Newsbusters in the first place.
