I was rather stunned at Dann Gire's Sept. 14 review of "2016 Obama's America" Sept. 14. As far as the quality of the movie itself, I wouldn't give it much more than he did; however, what concerned me was his comment that it was factually wrong. That comment is wrong. The entire movie documentary simply tracks President Obama's youth based upon his own book, "Dreams From My Father," and the five men who shaped his life prior to his coming to America for college. Dinesh D'Souza, the author of the best-selling book, interviewed people in his extended family including his brother from one of his father's three wives in Africa, but not including his mother, whom his father never married. All of these men were communists, activists, terrorists or racists -- Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers and Reverend Jeremiah Wright to name a few.
To be honest, if the media did as much journalism as Mr. D'Souza did, it would be better for everyone. I suspect Mr. Gire's political views overwhelmed his journalistic movie review at some point during his comments.
