Er, what?

The Washington Post’s Tom Shales:

A poorly made film about Ronald Reagan, shown to the delegates on Tuesday night, included the outright lie that “the media hated” Reagan, when just the opposite is closer to the truth.

Reagan’s time in the White House was a virtual love affair with the press, whom he charmed as infectiously as he charmed the whole country.

I’ll wait for you to finish laughing.

But seriously, when Reagan’s former critics have retroactively become his admirers, I think that’s the most sincere complement they have left to pay.

Still, Shales really shouldn’t call people liars when he’s the one that’s wrong.

BONUS: The chosen one on Reagan:

The truth is that my foreign policy is actually a return to the traditional bipartisan realistic policy of George Bush’s father, of John F. Kennedy, of, in some ways, Ronald Reagan.
