PoliticsUSA: movie propaganda: WaPo DC daily editorializes on the self-designed agitprop movie about Valerie Plame / joe wilson iii
Washington Post [Dec3,2k10] Editorial
I remember how I gambled here in my refWrite frontpage column on politics years ago, that Karl Rove was not guilty when Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson the Third [III] conspired to assassinate his character and his professional life. They were a JohnKerry-rooted cell within the State Department and CIA during Bush's presidency. They were key purveyors of the L-word accusations, and I don't mean 'Lesbian,' I mean 'Liar.' Now their books, one by her, one by him, have been used to base the movie's story-line upon. The movie is just now on The Big Screen in the theatres, I guess. ¶ Suddenly a daily edition of WaPo arrives and it features a movie review by the Editorial page authorities. They argue effectively that the agitprop movie is just that, propaganda aggrandizing the Plame-Wilson3 combo -- clowns and partisans, holdovers, deadwood in the bureaucracies, and spies. Now authors and movie-makers.
