Robert Redford to Play Dan Rather in 'Truth'
Hollywood Reporter ^

Posted on 07/09/2014 6:40:09 PM PDT by TigerClaws

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 in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries. - See more at: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/robert-redford-play-dan-rather-717476#sthash.Y0QB620e.dpuf

Forget Dan Blather, it’s going to be a Bush bashing movie all the way.

This movie will completely bomb! Nobody will watch it. Why does Hollywood insist on making these movies that nobody wants to watch? Does anybody really think that there are lots of people clamoring for this film?

It will contain as much truth as Bonnie Franklin’s portrayal of Margaret Sanger.

Have the limousine liberals in Hollyweird nominated it for an Oscar yet? I mean, if Obama can get the Nobel Peace Prize after only days in office surely they can award an Oscar to a film that has yet to be made.

Our undocumented democrap governor of Michigan loves giving Hollywood Libs our tax dollars to make straight toDVD movies here. He’d probably soil himself to get REDford here.

I think most Hollyweird studios and pro sports teams would be out of business without taxpayer support.

But legislators LOVE to brush up against the “players” in these glamor industries.

Why can’t a woman play Dan Rather? Isn’t it sexist to think that only a man can play a man? I’m thinking Rosie O’Donnell. Let’s just have Rosie O’Donnell play everyone. It would make everything simpler.
Why not have men play women? Imagine Brad Pitt portraying a woman going through labor. I’m thinking Academy Award for that.

Not to be a member of the grammar police but if we say a document is forged, there is an underlying assumption that an original document existed at one time. No proof has ever been presented in this case. So we all need to say, fabricated. The letter about Bush was fabricated.
FABRICATED!

Do you think Cate Blanchett has any idea what she is doing to her career, much less her reputation? Must be clueless.

The words “truth” and “Dan Rather” should never appear in the same sentence.

Would I be out of line, if I also said truth and Rats/RINOs should never never appear in the same sentence?

What a joke. Redford is a bleeding heart liberal portraying a lying pathetic Rather who still will not admit he manufactured the entire story. As I have said before, liberals never let truth get in the way of their agenda. These tow buffoons go hand in hand. One movie I will never see.

You have got to be kidding. She’s an actress-——this is what they do—act.

No acting skill required by Redford.

Adoration of the liberal subject matter could put over half of Hollywood in this role as wannabe stars of it.
