C'mon dude. The blacklist and HUAC didn't hold it against people?
Broadly speaking of course I know what you're saying, but I do think her politics and her way of presenting them (which I think is the better point you brought up) had at least something to do with her career going downhill.
She didn't completely contextualize what she was going through in the period where she had the crying attack on the plane, though - she's talked in other interviews about having death threats made against her, having to keep private security, being harassed during/after shows, being ambushed during what was supposed to be a routine guest spot on a FOX News morning show, etc. I mean the point of that story was that 1) people often don't regard entertainers/celebs as normal human beings with emotions, fears, doubts, etc. and therefore sometimes speak in a really casually cruel manner and 2) that it wasn't really the guy's fault, that it didn't help certainly, but that this was bigger than just the isolated things he said.
I enjoyed the interview greatly, but I guess I can see where her stances are kinda fish in a barrel if you're so inclined.
