That ranks right up there with 'if you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear'.
The criticisms of Atlas Shrugged come from the liberal media, in concert with their liberal government friends, most of whom graduated from Harvard. They see the book and its ideas as a threat to their concepts of an all-knowing, all controlling government. Much in the same light as was exposed in 1984, Animal Farm, and Brave New World.
Fixed that for you. I'm not sure the fantastic John Landis film from the 70's was telling the same tale as those other works. Though if looked at from a certain angle I suppose some similarities could be found.

Huxley, not Orwell. No one is forced to own/watch television.
If it were Huxley all television would be provided free of charge, including all premium channels, so as to keep the working class happy and ignorant of the real goings on of the world. That is of course until we start receiving our daily ration of soma which will make all current distractions seem quaint by comparison. Given the choice, I would prefer Huxleys ignorant utopia over Orwells distopia any day. Then again I am an escapist in every sense of the word . . .
