One Reelection Doc, Six Falsehoods, Zero Media Attention
Breitbart ^ | 3/23/12 | John Sexton

We all remember how the media attacked GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney's credibility for days due to what they described as a "misquote" in one of his campaign ads, but up until now, other than obligatory reporting, this same media has refused to call any serious scrutiny or attention to the growing pile of falsehoods discovered in Obama's reelection documentary, "The Road We've Traveled."

Something else the media is all but ignoring is that the documentary is narrated by Hollywood A-lister Tom Hanks, who is now embroiled in a racial scandal surroundinga "blackface" incident caught on video tape in 2004.

An analysis published Wednesday by identifies four more factual problems with Obama's campaign film:

The film says “17 million kids could no longer be denied for preexisting conditions,” implying all of them were being denied care before the federal health care law was passed. But that’s the total number of kids who could potentially be denied coverage or charged higher premiums if they sought coverage on the individual market. It also implies that Obama has reined in the costs of health care premiums — which “had been rising three times the rate of inflation,” as the film says. But the law hasn’t reined in premiums, which still rose three times more than inflation last year. In fact, experts say some of the recent growth was caused by the law, which requires more generous coverage. The film suggests that Obama refused to compromise on health care. Obama did hold out for a comprehensive bill, but there was compromise along the way, including the decision to drop the “public option” that he once championed. Later, he called the law “nine-tenths of a loaf.”
