Washington Examiner: HBO hit with liberal bias charge over Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas film
HBO is under fire again for anti-Republican bias, this time for a docu-drama on the politically charged 1991 confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and sexual harassment charges leveled against him by former co-worker Anita Hill.
“Confirmation” is set for release in April, but critics are lining up to assail it and the network that has a long record of bashing Republicans and whose executives and stars have donated to Democrats.
The latest attack came Friday when Mark Paoletta, a former George H.W. Bush era White House lawyer who worked on Thomas’ confirmation, said “Confirmation” is timed to help presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton and her “war on women” assault on the GOP.
