Why? Oh why, did someone feel it necessary to add characters to the story (white Orc)? Why? Oh why did someone feel it necessary to add events to the story that Tolkien did not include (Radagast chase scene)? Why? Oh why did Jackson leave out parts of the story that could have been included (ie meeting the king of eagles vs heavily adapted and edited scene of the goblin king)?

I have read every scrap of paper that Tolkien ever wrote one, at least ones I can purchase. . .multiple times. . .I thought Mr. Jackson was really making movies of these works out of the love for the story, not out of love for commercialism.
