Team Obama slammed the summer’s surprise hit film “2016: Obama’s America” earlier today.
Now, it’s Dinesh D’Souza’s turn.
D’Souza, the soft-spoken conservative who co-stars and co-directed the film, calls Obama’s attempts to destroy the film’s credibility “a characteristic mix of name calling and false allegations.”
The author turned filmmaker spoke exclusively to Deadline.com, defending the film while attacking the mainstream press for doing all it can to ignore a runaway hit.
If I were Michael Moore and I were to make a film that was the No. 2 political documentary of all time, I would be on every network. I would be on Meet The Press, and I would be profiled in The New York Times, and I would be all over MSNBC. Instead large sectors of the press are refusing to cover the film. They are just pretending it doesn’t exist.
