Sarah Palin Propagandist Bannon Unveils New Anti-Obama Doc

ReelPolitik By Anthony Kaufman | ReelPolitik February 10, 2012 at 10:14AM

It was only a matter of time before documentary propagandists on the right would launch an anti-Obama screed. Watch out, folks, here we go: From the man who brought us the Sarah Palin hagiography "The Undefeated" comes a new film based on the forthcoming book: "The Corruption Chronicles, Obama's Big Secrecy, Big Corruption, and Big Government," written by Tom Fitton, who is president of Judicial Watch, an organization that claims to be "nonpartisan." Yeah, if they're nonpartisan, so was Mao Zedong.

The trailer is sure to spread like a vile and mendacious virus on the web in the coming days after it premieres this evening at the Conservative Political Action Conference in D.C.

Written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon, the film will be released right in time for the ramp-up to the 2012 election this summer.

According to a press release, the film will chronicle Judicial Watch's battles with the Obama Administration over Solyndra, federal bailouts, earmarks, ACORN, and this should be really good, something they're calling "the New Black Panthers," which seems a ready-made bogeyman for racist smears.

The press release, strangely, seems to go after the Obama administration at the same time as calling out the "bipartisan corruption in Washington D.C.." It's an odd, and seems to me, tendentious rhetorical move. It's as if they're trying to hold onto some false non-biased higher ground when they're so obviously on the attack against Obama.

Please tell me: In the film's attacks against earmarks in government, might it note, for example, that several members of the GOP want more earmarks, and that Obama endorsed an earmark moratorium during his 2011 State of the Union address.

I'm just hoping the movie is as bad "The Undefeated," so few people will see it.
