The Reagan Movie, Ctd.

A Corner reader writes: “The problem with the petition web site is that it actually encourages people to watch the mini-series, in order to determine how accurate it is. This conflicts directly with the appeal of some protestors to not only not watch the mini-series, but to boycot the advertisers. I will probably not watch the series, because I have neither the time nor inclination to patronize

such liberal drivel (since when has it become news that the networks are

biased against conservative presidents?), but I will probably not boycot the

advertisers either (how will I know who they are, unless I watch the

series), so I guess I don’t have a dog directly in this fight. But I do

wish Reagan supporters would develop a consistent game plan on this and

stick with it.”
