Newsmax Fawns Over Discredited D'Souza
Topic: Newsmax

A July 31 Newsmax article by Andrea Billups is little more than a press release promoting the new film Dinesh D'Souza is making.

Billips touts how D'Souza's previous film, "2016: Obama's America," was "the second-highest-grossing political documentary in history" and "used arguments made in his bestselling 2010 book 'The Roots of Obama's Rage' to argue that Obama had deep-seated anger against the country he leads, a feeling that he absorbed from his father, a Kenyan who resented British colonialism."

But Billips is careful not to mention the fact that D'Souza's highbrow birtherism was discredited upon his book's release, which made his film equally discredited, regardless of how well it did at the box office.

Since Billips endeavored to include no negative information about D'Souza in her article, there's also no mention of D'Souza being ousted as president of a Christian college after 1) spending way too much time making his anti-Obama film, and 2) claiming to be engaged to his mistress while still married to his wife.

Billips does, however, tell us how much D'Souza wants to make his upcoming film the most popular documentary ever, ahead of Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11," because "We have to dethrone the fat guy. It's too embarrassing to be right behind him."
