The movie was made in 2000. If you'll recall, there was a lot of that going around at that time, mainly on TV. Remember the very short-lived TV show. 'Commander in Chief' starring Geena Davis? The 2005 series was about the first female President and her family, and was supposed to set the stage for Hillary in 2008. The show lasted half a season. Guess who the producer was?
That's right - - Rob Lurie.
I’m afraid I don’t recall it. I didn’t watch much if any TV from about 1990 to 2006. Never heard of Rob Lurie or the series “Commander In Chief.” I watched plenty of TV in the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s though so I do recognize both blatant and subtle propaganda when I see it. That clip from “The Contender” is pretty blatant.
