Reader's view: Review misled about film being a documentary

I would like to suggest the News Tribune more carefully review its movie previews. Case in point: “America,” which was featured on an “In Theaters” page July 17.

The preview was totally misleading. It was OK as far as it went, but it did not tell us about the last third of the flick. The film was not a “documentary,” as it was labeled. In my opinion, it was a propaganda piece for the right wing. It blasted President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and had the audacity to suggest President Ronald Reagan belonged in the same category as Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Say what?

The ultimate insult came when the “documentary” quoted only Fox News (unfair and unbalanced).

It was no wonder many in the audience left early.

I know the News Tribune can do better.
