Writing for the Southern Baptist Press Web site BP News, Phil Boatwright compares Good Night, and Good Luck to Triumph of the Will.

Not since Leni Riefenstahl’s “Triumph of the Will” has a film been so unabashedly employed as a tool for indoctrination as Mr. Clooney’s. The story tells of renowned newsman Edward R. Morrow’s televised verbal war with Sen. Joseph McCarthy. Mr. Clooney’s agenda became glaringly apparent as he avoided any commentary other than his own.

Yeah it really would have been a much better film if he'd given the pro-witch hunt side equal time....


(Boatwright also says that Syriana and Paradise Now "defended terrorism." Did David Horowitz ghost-write this column?)
