HBO’s new film “Game Change” is thoroughly sourced, fair and balanced. It humanizes former Gov. Sarah Palin while letting even Democratic viewers get to know the woman behind the headlines.
Big Hollywood has been tracking the film for some time, debunking its obvious lies and shredding HBO’s pitiful defense of what is a politically motivated hatchet job.
HBO has every right to create any kind of programming it wishes.
And responsible media outlets have a duty to let viewers know when a film bears very little resemblance to the truth.
* HBO ignores Palin sources who traveled extensively with the governor during the campaign:
Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe to defend her portrayal of Sarah Palin in HBO’s “Game Change,” Actress Julianne Moore on Tuesday was insistent that the film is based on fact.
“Everything was sourced. “I cannot presume to know her, I don’t, when I was doing my research I spent a lot of time looking at her own material; I read her book, her speeches.”
* Key players behind “Game Change” gave thousands to Democrats, zero to Republicans
$200K Donated to Dems, $0K to GOP
* McCain/Palin aide calls “Game Change” a lie
a key segment meant to embarrass Governor Palin appears to be a work of fiction far removed from the genuine circumstances.
~ JUST like Al’ Gore’s claims.
I won’t watch it. I know it’s based on a book that’s totally unfair and untrue, especially to Sarah Palin. I want to repeat if I could my admiration and appreciation for Sarah Palin, she energized our party … she energized more people than I did. She’s a good and decent person and this continuing maligning of her by the liberal left is reprehensible to me.
McCain actually ranted at the film
* “Game Change” review: In-kind contribution to President Obama
The only surprise that came with my screening of “Game Change” was in the realization that HBO chose to remake the sci-fi/horror film “The Hidden.” It’s about a dangerous alien who comes to Earth determined to become president of the United States.
~ Note the trailer: He would have done ‘ anything to break the law’. Sound familiar?
Gallup polls from the last presidential race prove that once Palin joined the ticket on Aug. 29, 2008, McCain’s ratings steadily climbed to a point where the Republican ticket even outshined Democratic Sen. Barack Obama.
HBO and the creators of the anti-Palin fairy tale called “Game Change” not only filled their attack film with misinformation, half-truths and outright lies, they also exposed themselves by leaving in an ugly slander that has already been investigated and debunked by the United States Secret Service over three years ago.
Do yourself a favor, go see “Act of Valor” again this weekend.
* Exit Polling shows Palin boosted McCain presidential ticket, debunking “Game Change” charge
HBO’s new smear job on Sarah Palin, “Game Change,” claims Palin is an idiot and a head case, a selfish and self-aggrandizing centralizer of power. As we’ve discussed multiple times, that’s sheer nonsense.
He’s right, of course, as the 2 minute, 38 second video released by SarahPAC in a statement below. “Game Change” is “fact change,” but it’s worse than that.
~ Is this NOT copyright infringement, the title?
HBO Defends ‘Game Change’… Again; And Here’s What HBO Is Afraid To Tell You
See the names of eight people who have gone on the record to declare the book “Game Change” a falsehood, and what they’ve seen of the film (HBO refuses to screen it for them — but never mentions that in the statement) is just as false.
HBO will soon debut “Game Change,” the Super PAC-like film that blames McCain’s failed attempt at the 2008 Presidency on Sarah Palin. Many readers are aware of HBO’s tendency to smear and misrepresent reality regarding right-of-center political figures and law enforcement to promote left-of-center narratives; this isn’t the first such bomb they’ve dropped.
Simply calling out HBO isn’t enough. We need to watch the coming critic frenzy and specifically call them out as individuals along with their respective outlets.
* How can we believe “Game Change” when it’s based on gossip and lies?
HBO claims that “Game Change, the book, was applauded by audiences and pundits on both ends of the political spectrum.” Really? If this is true, just like the writers of the book, HBO doesn’t name any of their sources to back it up. There are plenty of people on the record however, who did not applaud John Heilemann and Mark Halperin’s work.
Palin Didn’t Cost Republicans the Election – Obama’s Fundraising Did
~ I know that’s the ONLY reason many of us had to suck back our bile voting for RINO McCain. I voted for SARAH!
Here’s the truth about the McCain-Palin campaign, which HBO’s upcoming “Game Change” film attempts to shroud in fanciful anti-Palin fiction: Palin carried the campaign. She would have led the Republicans to victory had it not been for the September financial collapse and McCain’s disastrous decision to suspend his campaign so that he could vote for the TARP bailout in Washington.
From my lay of the land, “Game Change” is also Steve Schmidt and Nichole Wallace’s (the real architects behind McCain’s failed presidential campaign) last gasp attempt at piling their historic failure onto Palin, who, in reality, was the only chance McCain had at beating Barack Obama.
Obviously, all involved are worried the film won’t stand up to scrutiny.
* Byron York: Why does HBO’s “Game Change” focus all its fire on Palin?
Only a small portion of the book “Game Change,” the political best-seller covering the 2008 presidential campaign, is about Sarah Palin. And yet, all of the HBO movie is.
Big Hollywood has learned that most of the key players involved in the making of the film are leftists who almost exclusively support Democratic candidates including, of course, Barack Obama.
Go see that for yourself !
HBO claims its upcoming film “Game Change,” which covers the 2008 presidential campaign, isn’t fact challenged and isn’t a hit piece. But what do the few reviewers who have seen it say?
We all know how much you lefties love campaign finance reform. What better place to start than with a campaign ad disguised as a docudrama created by bunch of partisan millionaires backed by a multinational corporation.
Maybe the FEC needs to get involved in order for the other side to get some equal time?
Any of you campaign finance reform lefties with me on that one?
“Game Change” is merely the latest HBO programming designed to pretzel twist history for its own liberal ends.
Late yesterday, on a conference call, we also learned that several aides to Governor Palin requested the opportunity to see “Game Change” in advance. HBO refused.
Thanks to BIG Hollywood for giving us the TRUTH!
There is not much more I can say about how the left rolls you know? I have but two short things to add:
1. If you subscribe to HBO CANCEL it!
2. This society that Obama has created reminds me of a cult classic. It has since the day Obama took office and it goes in line with whatJohn Nolte said in his comparison to “The Hidden,” What administration has been more ‘alien’ than this one?
