Accuracy in Media

WASHINGTON — The liberal media cannot stand Dinesh D’Souza’s most recent film, America: Imagine the World Without Her because of D’Souza’s “right-wing” leanings and how he’s an “idol” among the conservative movement.

Reuters reporter Jim Gaines recommended readers to not see D’Souza’s film in theaters. He began, “The week of July Fourth seems an odd time to release a film that questions the patriotism of the president of the United States, but that is precisely what right-wing idol Dinesh D’Souza sets out to do in his new film America: Imagine the World Without Her.”

He went on to say:

I wouldn’t ordinarily dignify such nonsense with a column, but America the movie exemplifies everything that’s wrong about the American political conversation these days, rich with examples from both left and right.

Gaines criticized D’Souza for his film and content because he “lays out all of the worst charges against America, from slavery to the genocidal confiscation of Indian lands, from the way the American brand of predatory colonialism has stolen the world’s resources to the way American-style free-market capitalism robs from the poor and gives to the rich.”

When D’Souza criticized Obama in the film, Gaines said, “D’Souza swings around to his main target, President Barack Obama, whom he portrays as a believer in this radical-left narrative of American shame, in “America the Inexcusable.” As a result, says D’Souza, Obama is engaged in a conspiracy to bring the U.S. to its knees.”

Gaines did note how D’Souza, at the recent Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference, received a standing ovation for criticizing U.S. President Barack Obama’s policies. Gaines said, “The most outrageous bit of propagandist hooey in America (there is a lot of competition) comes after a clip from the 2009 inauguration in which Obama calls us “to begin again the work of remaking America.””

D’Souza acknowledged his own mistakes, where he is facing prosecution for making illegal campaign contributions in 2012, which Gaines called, “his own legal predicament.”
