The Washington Post’s Face Checker Column gives the “King of Bain” film low marks for accuracy.
Glenn Kessler writes that it “is such an over-the-top assault on former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney that it is hard to know where to begin. It uses evocative footage from distraught middle-class Americans who allege that Romney’s deal-making is responsible for their woes. It mixes images of closed factories and shuttered shops with video clips of Romney making him look foolish, vain or greedy. And it has a sneering voice-over that seeks to push every anti-Wall Street button possible.”
Example: One of the subjects interviewed for the film told the Post that he didn’t even know that it was for a movie about Romney, but thought that it was a documentary on the closing of the local UniMac plant.
It’s going to be a long, long year…
