Conservative Character Assassination of Kennedys Must Be Stopped

Robert Greenwald appeared on CNN Sunday to slam a right-wing script for a series about the Kennedys.

On "Reliable Sources" Sunday, Robert Greenwald from Brave New Films slammed an upcoming History Channel miniseries about the Kennedys as a gross distortion of history motivated by a right-wing political agenda. The producer is Joe Surnow, creator of the neo-cons' favorite show, "24". Several historians have come forward to denounce the script as factually inaccurate.

The series "Deliberatively distorts historical fact with the intent of a political agenda," said Greenwald in the segment, later calling the project "Character assassination pretending to be a mini-series."
