"It's not The Obama Network, it's not the MSNBC shift," Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos, a Democrat, said at the Paley Center for Media in New York. "There's no political slate to the programming." Sarandos did acknowledge that "it's hard to argue there's not a left lean to the creative community." But he says he pursued the Obamas because "I didn't want to see that deal go anywhere else, because I think they're going to be great at it."
