Profile Bio Text
Peter Benton Bart (born July 24, 1932) is an American journalist and film producer. He has served a lengthy tenure as editor in chief of Variety, known as the Bible of show business, since 1989. Bart is also co-host of the weekly television show, Shootout (formerly Sunday Morning Shootout) with film producer Peter Guber, which since 2003 has been carried on the AMC Network and is also seen in syndication and in 53 countries around the world. In April 2009 it was announced that Bart was moving to the position of "vice president and editorial director", characterised online as "Boffo No More: Bart Up and Out at Variety".
A 2001 article about Bart published in Los Angeles Magazine claimed Bart had been responsible for disparaging comments about minorities, but an internal investigation found those charges to be false and inaccurate. Peter Bart has been consistently critical of the creative work of Adam Sandler. On Sandler`s comedy album Shhh...Don`t Tell, Sandler portrays Bart as a sufferer of micropenis who sexually assaults his secretary, on a track entitled "The Boss and the Secretary."
