NRO's Jonah Goldberg on Hollywood:

The last major Hollywood film that dealt with a terrorist threat was The Sum of
All Fears, the 2002 film that started Ben Affleck�s career on a downward
glide-path to the center square on Hollywood Squares. In the book, the bad guys
were Islamic fundamentalists. But, thanks in large part to a campaign by the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the villains were changed to a
secret cabal of ultra-sophisticated, super-wealthy neo-Nazis. Whereas in real
life most neo-Nazis smash cans of beer against their heads while dancing in the
woods, in Hollywood�s vision they wear perfectly tailored suits and plot world
domination from the highest corridors of power.
