HBO’s ‘Confirmation’ Misses Key Facts in Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas Controversy

From the Free Beacon [1]:

Thomas’s supporters argue that the complete volume of evidence—including sealed congressional testimony that has never previously been published in full—raises questions about Hill’s claims.

They are speaking out in response to the HBO movie Confirmation, released last week, which they say is heavily biased against Thomas.

“Ask any person whose only knowledge of this event is based on this movie, and I would guarantee that 100 percent of those who only watched this movie would say Hill told the truth,” said Mark Paoletta, a former White House attorney under President George H.W. Bush. “But at the end of the hearings, after watching these proceedings unfiltered by any media spin, the American people believed Thomas 2-1 and even 3-1 in some polls.”
