Cruz Introduces Bill to Halt Government Cooperation With China-Subordinate Movie Studios
China has been buying up Hollywood. It is well known that to be critical of China is a highly risky career move in the entertainment industry. On the other hand, using the Defense Department budget as a crony counterweight is hardly an answer.

The bill, referred to as the “SCRIPT Act,” limits or prohibits the use of Defense Department resources for films that self-censor in order to be screened in China.
“From buying media outlets to broadcast propaganda into America to coercing Hollywood studios and sports leagues to self-censor by threatening to cut off access to one of the biggest markets for sports and entertainment in the world, the Chinese Communist Party spends billions and billions of dollars to mislead Americans about China and shape what our citizens see, hear, and think,” Cruz said in a statement.
