Calling Out “Death of a President”

John Nolte of conservative site BigHollywood says that Hollywood should look at itself for the rhetoric that came out of movies and other projects during the Bush years.

He calls Hollywood "an industry that for ten long years has almost uniformly been the most hostile, vitriolic, anti-government force on the planet; spending hundreds of millions of dollars to paint an American president as a war criminal who stole an election, our CIA as a force of evil , and our troops as dehumanized monsters."

More specifically, he cites the 2006 "mockumentary" "Death of a President," which depicted the assassination of George W. Bush and received praise from critics and at the Toronto Film Festival.
