Topic: Accuracy in Media
Cliff Kincaid, it seems, is still all in for Joel Gilbert. He writes in his May 14 Accuracy in Media column:
Gilbert directed the blockbuster film, “Dreams from My Real Father,” which was heavily criticized by the left before the November 2012 presidential election because of the Obama campaign’s fear it could alert voters to Obama’s communist connections and Marxist philosophy.
False -- Gilbert was criticized because his flim is demonstrably untrue, a fact Kincaid refuses to acknowledge.
In all of the columns Kincaid has written lionizing Gilbert, not once has he acknowledged the work of blogger Loren Collins, who definitively proved that Gilbert's claim that Obama's mother posed nude for Frank Marshall Davis is utterly fraudulent.
If one major claim in Gilbert's film can be so conclusively demolished, why should anyone trust any of the other claims he makes? That's a question Kincaid should answer for his AIM readers before he slobbers over Gilbert again.
And while he's at it, Kincaid should also ask Gilbert who funded the mass mailing of his discredited film to swing states, and exactly how many copies he mailed out.
Those are just a few of the things Gilbert is hiding, despite Kincaid having once laughably claimed that Gilhert "demonstrat[ed] that he has nothing to hide."
It's not that Gilbert has nothing to hide; it's that Kincaid has absolutely no interest in looking. So much for Kincaid's title as head of AIM's Center for Investigative Journalism.
