Now everyone be very very quiet...
The following is some background information on a story concerning the scandal currently rocking the porn industry, and discussed on the following page...
There are those who are unfamiliar with the story of the porno industry scandal, that I refer to in following posts. Because the porn industry is now the biggest segment of the entertainment industry (close to 60 billion - bigger than mainstream movies, television, sports) the scandal is being buried. The same media conglomerates that own the news media are also heavily invested in porn, and since they are making one hell of a lot more money off of porn that they are making off other media investments this is one scandalous murder trial that will not be getting the twenty four seven treatment.
What happened is that some high school male Marilyn Monroe type arrived on the scene and this was the trigger which was to set in motion a series of scandals culminating in grisly murder. Apparently sales of the videos were bestsellers in the 'twink' category, breaking previous sales records, and in the hopes of freeing the kid from a contract, one porn producer allegedly killed the other porn producer by sawing his head off with a knife and then burning his house down. The murder trial is currently underway but is taking place under the radar screen you might say because the seamy underside of the porn industry is being exposed. Sean Lockhart was the high school goose that laid the multimillion dollar eggs, in exchange for the industry standard 2,000 dollars an egg. The porn industry has brought back in the old 1930s studio system, which means locking performers into el cheapo contracts which then allow the studios to rake in huge profits while keeping their costs at the peanut level.
What we have here is not just a porn scandal, but also a media scandal, for it is obvious that the only reason why this case has not become the 'murder of the month' is because it is socially significant and threatens that golden goose. Some meaningless murder will become the murder de jour, simply because it is a meaningless murder. This illustrates the connection that exists between the supposedly objective media system and the porn industry since both are owned by the same conglomerates, and when a news story threatens the profit interests of the multinational, it does not become news.
Once this high school kid realized that he was being taken to the cleaners and fleeced by some porn producer, he tried to get out of that contract, with the porn producer threatening legal action, to continue fleecing that half fleeced lamb. Some half plucked high school chicken would be sent back to become completely plucked. Out nations judges would see to that, of that I am sure, and so was the kid, who capitulated to further ruthless fleecing. Nothing in our legal system is more important than property and money, and if that means that some chicken gets fully plucked by some shrewd porn producer then so be it. You can see that we also have a scandal that touches on issues concerning the legal system, because some under paid porno chicken cannot afford the expensive lawyers that the millions being raked in by the porn producer can pay for, and so must capitulate.
The scandal also touches upon political issues, since it was a political decision to deregulate ownership of media properties which then allowed these massive media empires to be created, which then allowed media barons to squash stories such as this one when it threatened the porn industry, the most highly lucrative of all those media properties.
