What I learned yesterday was that the Department of Homeland Security wants script approval on any projects that mention it. There’s no legal requirement that a production has to comply, thank goodness.
I feel creepy about posting this, and considered not doing it.
But just the fact that it makes me feel creepy means that it’s important to at least say out loud. Really, most big agencies would like to exercise some spin control regarding how they are portrayed, it’s just that the DHS is spookier than most, to me.
I plan not to learn anything today, as I’m taking the day off.
