Angelina Jolie’s father Jon Voight is an outspoken republican and in his latest rant he rails against President Barack Obama, claiming that his administration has “taken over” mainstream media.
Voight is in Florida attending the Republican National Convention and he even compared what he sees as media control to Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez!
“The media has been taken over by this administration,” Voight told the Daily Caller.
“It’s not less than what has happened in Venezuela with Hugo Chavez, really, because you can’t get the information through. I’m giving you this because I want to give the press my opinion. You can put it in any way you want to. But, it’s become pure propaganda and we should be appalled.”
Braving Hurricane Isaac in Tampa, Voight claimed that major networks are ignoring the week’s events.
“I mean look at the main media, it is not going to cover the Republican convention?
“This is propaganda, pure and simply. They say, ‘well, we’ll give them an hour.’ They’ll edit an hour – well, what will they edit out? What is the story they will tell? Do you understand?”
Brad Pitt and Angelina have supported multiple liberal causes between them, but they are no strangers to their parents’ right-leaning views.
Jane Pitt, Brad’s mother, recently wrote a letter to a newspaper editor where she condemned same sex marriage and Barack Obama.
