Has HBO lost some view­ers af­ter air­ing “Game Change,” the dra­matic por­trayal of the 2008 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion? Maybe. “Please don’t use my name as I’m in the en­ter­tain­ment biz, but I called Directv last night and can­celed HBO. The op­er­a­tor told me they have had a ton of calls,” one dis­grun­tled viewer told In­stapun­dit and Pa­ja­mas Me­dia con­trib­u­tor Glenn Reynolds.

An­other reader who can­celed his HBO sub­scrip­tion told Mr. Reynolds, “The rep asked me why and I said, ‘Cost and po­lit­i­cal con­tent.’ He asked: ‘ Bill Maher?’ ‘Yep.’ ”

Mean­while, while some crit­ics in­sist that “Game Change” was both am­bi­tious and fair, Bighol­ly­ con­trib­u­tor Stacy Drake vet­ted the film and com­piled the “Top 10 Lies of HBO’S ‘Game Change.’ ”
