Streisand Lashes Out At Reagans Cancellation

Subscribe to Barbra Streisand alerts

Barbra Streisand has slammed the decision to axe her actor husband James BROLIN's new TV movie about RONALD REAGAN - calling it "a sad day for artistic freedom".

Streisand, a Democratic activist, was horrified when she learned TV bosses at CBS had bowed to pressure from right wingers and cancelled THE REAGANS, which was due to air later this month (NOV03) featuring Brolin as the former president of America.

Posting a fiery note on her website yesterday, Streisand lashed out, "(Artistic freedom is) one of the most important elements of an open and democratic society."

Streisand is being backed by actress Meryl Streep, who says, "Any time that something is banned it makes you uncomfortable as an American."
