Do Audiences Want to See War?

Mickey Kaus:

Are Hollywood's Iraq dramas bombing because a) people don't want to hear about Iraq or b) people don't want to hear about Iraq from Hollywood liberals? ... Several hundred commenters at Breitbart.com (most, presumably, sent by Drudge) seems to think they know the answer. It's not Steven Bochco's answer. ... If there were an Iraq film not made by Hollywood liberals, we might be able to settle the argument.
Well, it's not a movie and it's not about Iraq per se (though neither are some of the productions mentioned in that AFP dispatch on Breitbart.com), but there is a War on Terror-theme television show, made by Hollywood non-liberal Joel Surnow, called 24. It seems to have done alright.
