Washington Times: How television breeds incivility
…[On] April 16 HBO is going to broadcast “Confirmation,” a made-for-TV movie that will dramatize the outrageous Clarence Thomas hearings. To be clear, I have seen the script of “Confirmation” so I know how it treats the Justice and his accusers. My objection is not to the content or point of view. It is to the fact of the movie itself. Simply put, it is an unnecessary, unwanted incitement at an incendiary time in American life. Gasoline thrown onto an already dangerous bonfire.
