According to the Drudge Report, CBS will be airing a bio-pic about Ronald Reagan during next month's sweeps. Great! It should go well with the new book of Reagan's letters:
In the upcoming CBS telefilm on President Ronald Reagan producer fail to mention the economic recovery or the creation of wealth during his administration, nor does it show him delivering the nation from the malaise of the Jimmy Carter years ... It stresses Reagan's moments of forgetfulness, his supposed opinions on AIDS and gays, his laissez-faire handling of his staff members. The scenes often carry a disapproving tone. During a scene in which his wife pleads with him to help people battling AIDS, Reagan says resolutely, "They that live in sin shall die in sin" and refuses to discuss the issue further.
Or maybe not ...
The film's producers, Zadan and Meron, acknowledge their liberal politics, as do the stars of the television movie, James Brolin and Judy Davis. But Meron tells the TIMES: "This is not a vendetta, this is not revenge. It is about telling a good story in our honest sort of way. We all believe it's a story that should be told."
"In our honest sort of way"?? What happened here is that Zadan, Meron, Brolin, and Davis got together with CBS chairman Leslie Moonves, a big Democratic donor and close friend of the Clintons, and dreamt up a hatchet job on the Reagans -- if this report checks out. Hardly the fair and balanced group of people you'd hope would take on a project like this, but it's a free country. No one has to watch if they don't want to see it. I think I'll just break out the book instead that night.Sphere It View blog reactions
