When Matthews goes after CBS, they have gone way way left.

These are simple, petty people who are doing this. They probably couldn't name two implemented policies of Reagan's they could cogently argue against. They're making their little hit here for no other reason than that Reagan is a beloved Republican hero. The good news is that this smear job is perfectly naked, as apparently even people like Chris Matthews and Howard Fineman can clearly see it for what it is.

I think conservatives need to make it loud and clear that we will boycott (and encourage others to boycott) the sponsors of this television program.
Dammit, this is where we need to swing a big hammer !

MATTHEWS: OK. Let me tell you something, when they go out there, they use people like Lou Wasserman, who passed away, because he’s beyond litigation. They use people who can’t sue them, that’s why those names are chosen.

This is about money. It’s about screwing people without facing any legal risk.

I'm a little surprised at how perceptive Matthews was in deducing this.

And, of course, he's right...

Also touched on was the equally dubuious exchange with Lou Wasserman where Wasserman says to Reagan, "People know you?re an informer for the black list," and Reagan replies, "I?ve never called anybody a Commie who wasn?t a Commie".

And to think, that is supposed to be a slam of Reagan.

It's pathetic how they can fictionalize "history" a la "JFK" and confidently expect to deceive the youth of America. There oughta be a law.

Here's the FR posting of the story that broke the news about the leaked script. A surprisingly critical expose from the NY Slimes:

Grumbling Trickles Down From Reagan Biopic (by JIM RUTENBERG, NYTIMES, 10/20/03)

Im not surprised by Matthews reaction. Chris liked Reagan and appreciated him for what he did for the country in ending the Cold War. Matthews despite harping a lot about the war in Iraq has written a lot of good things about President Bush. He devotes a whole chapter to him in one of his books.

Look again at what RR says about gays.

RR was nothing if not a realistic evaluator of fact. He did not seem to regard homosexulity as a threat. Maybe, based on his Hollywood experience, he regarded it as natural, in the sense that most did not choose it.

The one thing which distinguishes RR, is the soundness of his judgments.

He was what he appeared to be.

It took me a very long time, probably because of his Hollywood antecedents, to accept this as fact. For an excuse I can only point to the rampant superficiality that is a signal characteristic of so many of the Hollywood set, examples of which abound, and we need look no further than the wretches involved in this miserable production to find them.

But he really was what you saw, and what convinced me was reading some of his letters in Reagan: A Life In Letters and Reagan In His Own Hand, two compendia that no hack in a CBS office had to ghost-write for him (listening, Hillary?). Highly recommended. Actors and politicians are not noted for being particularly genuine people. Reagan was the exception.

nice work. anybody doubtr why the networks are not trusted to tell the truth? poll after poll shows this and only the fact that the corporate people will not stop them proves that news is cheap and a lost leader.

This hit piece will only place more people into the Reagan/Bush Camp that were on the fence. The Left is skwirming under the lamp of talk radio and Fox news and is grasping at straws.
