Bozell Defends D'Souza Film, Doesn't Say What It's About
Topic: Media Research Center

Brent Bozell pulls off a rare feat in his Sept. 28 column: He defends Dinesh D'Souza's anti-Obama film "2016: Obama's America" without once addressing any of the claims it makes.

Bozell touts the film's "box office gross of more than $32 million," making it "second place on the all-time box-office money list for political documentaries," and laments that "You didn't see D'Souza on CBS or NBC (although he showed up on ABC's "Nightline" in late night). There were no cover stories in Time or Newsweek."

Bozell did single out some negative reviews, one of which noted that "'D'Souza spins out the conspiracy theory' of America in dramatic economic and geopolitical collapse by 2016," but at no point does Bozell respond to the substance of that claim -- he simply paints the reviewas the kind of negative review a conservative can expect from the liberal media.

In fact, D'Souza's film is rife with false and misleading claims, which do indeed embrace a conspiracy theory of Obama being somehow "anti-American." 

Apparently, the "Tell the Truth!" campaign run by Bozell's Media Research Cdenter doesn't apply to D'Souza, just like it doesn't apply to any conservative.
