Two liberals who wouldn’t know “truth” if it smacked them in the face

Hollywood Reporter: Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, The President, and The Privilege of Power.
The book, written by Rather’s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted after Rather reported that George W. Bush had gotten to serve in the National Guard in order to avoid the Vietnam War.
Cate Blanchett is attached to play Mapes, who was fired after the scandal, which was dubbed “Rathergate.”
Mapes’ memoir, Truth and Duty, was published in 2005. The Peabody Award-winning producer worked for CBS’ 60 Minutes starting in 1999. After Rather’s report on Bush aired, it became the subject of harsh criticism, and an internal investigation was launched.
Subsequently, Mapes was accused of lapses in judgment and was fired, while Rather’s career and reputation were jeopardized.
James Vanderbilt, the screenwriter behind The Amazing Spider-Man and White House Down, will adapt the screenplay, and make his directorial debut with the project, which Mythology Entertainment is producing. Brad Fischer, William Sherak, Vanderbilt and Mikkel Bondesen are producing. Vanderbilt is repped by WME, UFUSE Management and McKuin Frankel.
Redford, most recently appearing All Is Lost and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is repped by WME and Jackoway Tyerman.
Ah, Redford and Rather – good little commies. Another Hollyweird movie that I predict will tank.

    “Truth!!!” Commies will always say the craziest things.

  2. Amazing these guys think they deserve to attack President Bush when neither one served their country. Rather joined the MC, but couldn’t stay.
    I happened to download President Bush’s military record several years back and he has nothing to be ashamed of. He more than served his time and had good write ups. Even when he was out and only needed to serve 50 hours per month, he far exceeded his needed hours.
    Not a fan of either one of these jokers.

    • Amazing what a pompous arse Rather is…When my boyfriend was in Afghanistan, he had to go outside the wire (in full gear w/a gunner) and some of Rather’s lackeys. They had a rendezvous with an Afghani who had brought Rather’s bag from where he left it at (whatever “reporting” spot he was at previously). He tells the story of how he had to retrieve Rather’s shorts (more than likely Viagra)! Rather’s bag is so important to him he risked US soldiers’ (and his staff) lives to retrieve his precious bag for him. Bast@rd…

  3. So Redford, with his grotesque plastic-surgery-mutilated face, means to rehabilitate Dan Rather? To quote DCG: “Ah, Redford and Rather – good little commies. Another Hollyweird movie that I predict will tank.”

  4. They’d better hurry up and get that movie in the can soon, ’cause Redford ain’t exactly a spring chicken.
    And I bet it goes straight to DVD, too.

  5. Another snoozefest at the box office. Just what the movie industry needs!

  6. If Truth does not contain Dick Thornburg, Louis Bacardi, Col. Jerry Killian and Mrs. Marion Carr Knox then the film is as AWOL as GWB was and should be renamed Half-Truth. What? none of the four are among the cast? Joseph Goebbels would be proud! Just in time to deflect criticism of JEB in 2016!
