‘The Butler’ shows media bias

Published 10:30am Thursday, September 5, 2013

Usually when a movie is based on a book, you hear comments like “I liked the book better.”

Have you heard any comments like that from viewers of “The Butler”? Probably not since the book was a rather plain story of a man who basically enjoyed his life in the White House. All the drama in the movie never really happened. It was all made up by the writers who wanted to convey their message, rather than the truth. Strange how a movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden, based on a book, was on the news several times pointing out the distortion of the truth in the movie even though the critics agreed that it was 95 percent accurate.

Points of view from the left seldom get the scrutiny of our unbiased media I guess.
