"Our most serious concern, however, is not with those in Washington; it is with the American people. What has alarmed me throughout this episode has been the willingness of my fellow citizens to rationalize the President's behavior even after they suspected, and later knew, that he was lying."

ON FILM: The unreal 'facts' in cinema history

posted: 05/12/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss
