How can the truth be 'anti-Obama'?
To the editor:
On your Sept. 1 Quick Read page, your headline "Anti-Obama indie film surging" was very disappointing. More appropriate would have been "Obama documentary film surging." To me, your headline was a disservice to Mr. Gerald Molen, a former Las Vegas resident and producer of the film.
In making this documentary, I'm sure his intention was for the film to have some appeal to Obama supporters and independents who might want to learn something more about this man from a well-researched and professionally made film exploring Mr. Obama's early years.
The film explains exactly what is meant by those "dreams from his father," how these dreams have influenced Mr. Obama's policies as president, and how they will continue to influence his decisions should he be re-elected in November. "Anti-Obama" is a mis-characterization.
I don't think Mr. Molen, who also won an Academy Award for producing "Schindler's List," made this fine film to be seen only by Republicans and conservatives, when in essence that would just be "preaching to the choir." Now, after seeing the article's headline, what Obama fan, or honest information-seeking independent, is going to want to spend time at a film your headline describes as "Anti-Obama"?
Although your article was informative and complimentary, the headline was a bad choice.
