I haven't seen that 60 Minuges piece, but I question whether the profit motive for Hollywood wasn't a larger influence. The market was different back then. There was actually an audience for those admittedly inaccurate sitcoms. If they aired today, they would not turn a profit because they would not generate an audience. Even if the entertainment industry thought it was an obligation, it still wouldn't survive without public support. This is a strong instance of art imitating life and not the other way around.
A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate and die. But in that vision, she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.

This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
