Danny Strong Lies Again – claims ‘minimal conservative backlash’ to ‘Game Change’

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on May 18, 2012

As if the farcical movie ‘Game Change’ wasn’t itself full of enough lies, producer Danny Strong just made this patently  false statement (emphasis mine):

The film’s producers, director Jay Roach, and Strong were prepared for an outcry from conservatives, but it didn’t really materialize. He said, “It was an extremely minimal conservative backlash. The only backlash was amongst Sarah Palin’s aides, and those are people who are on Sarah Palin’s payroll. As far as the mainstream conservative press – the Washington Times, the Washington Examiner, Fox News – I felt that there was very little backlash to the film, and I think part of that was because of how fair the film was and how the film went to great pains to show you Sarah Palin’s point of view and John McCain’s point of view.”

Contrary to Strong’s prevarication, there was a very strong conservative backlash to the ‘Game Change’ movie.  For example, John McCain told FOX News Sunday that he would not watch the movie and that “It’s based on a book that’s completely biased and with unattributed quotes, et cetera.”    In his Wall Street Journal article this week about the vice presidential vetting process,  A. B. Culverhouse, the DC attorney who was in charge of vetting Sarah Palin,  described the movie as “the revisionist HBO movie about that campaign” .   Governor Palin herself referred to the movie as a false narrative.  After the U. S. Embassy in Singapore screened ‘Game Change,’  SarahPAC sent the Ambassador a copy of ‘The Undefeated’.   The PAC also posted a statement criticizing the movie.  The Maryland4Palin unit of Organize4Palin  handed out playbills branding the movie as a false narrative to attendees as they arrived for the DC premiere of ‘Game Change’.   And yes, several of Governor Palin’s aides did make public statements about the inaccuracies in the movie and also engaged in a conference call condemning the movie.

Mark Levin condemned Schmidt and Wallace as evil two-faced cowards – The Right Scoop has the video here.   Rush Limbaugh described it as a “cartoon” and said it was part of the Democrat Party’s war on women.  See also his discussion of the movie while it was still in the works.  Glenn Beck (video here) said that the movie producers were likely attacking Governor Palin’s credibility to prevent her from running for office again.  Stephen Bannon’s Victory Films contracted with the Reelz Channel to air ‘The Undefeated’ the same weekend as the premiere of the ‘Game Change’ movie.

The Palin blogosphere was afire with articles refudiating the movie and its contents.  (See our Game Change page for a sampling.)   Palin-friendly blogs, large and small, joined in the fray.  Breitbart.com authors wrote a series of articles condemning the Game Change Movie as a false narrative.  Blogs like The Daily Caller,   Conservatives4Palin,  The Other McCain,  The Gateway Pundit, and a number of other blogs in the Palin community condemned the movie and defended Governor Palin.

So where’s your “minimal conservative backlash,”  Danny Strong?

    I hope, in the end, that mendacious lying piece of crud, Danny Strong (and, in fact, all who were associated with this obvious hit piece), end of with egg on their faces and big blots of failure on their pathetic resumes! I’d really like to be the one to say those famous words, “You’ll never work in this town again!!” But, in the end, I think it’s HBO that will have taken the biggest hit – and it couldn’t happen to a more deserving network!
