- Game Change - the unflattering HBO movie about the McCain-Palin campaign.
- Veep - the unflattering HBO series about a ditzy female Vice-President.
Then consider these:
- Political Animals - the flattering ABC drama starring Sigourney Weaver as a female democratic Secretary of State who used to be married to a womanizing President (sound familiar?).
- The Obama Effect - a new (and apparently dreadful) movie about how Obama's 2008 election changed one black man's life for the better.
On the other hand, there is Paul Kengor's new book, The Communist, about Obama's mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying communist/Stalinist journalist. Or David Maraniss' new biography of Obama that pointed out so many falsehoods in his memoirs. Or Stanley Kurtz' book about Obama, Radical-in-Chief, detailing his many connections to the ultra-left in Chicago.
Do you think Kengor will even get a review in the New York Times? Or an interview on Today?
The mainstream media is serving the same function Goebbels served -- presenting noble falsehoods at the service of the regime, while suppressing embarrassing facts about that same regime.
