POST ‘GAME CHANGE’
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, Bighollywood.com contributor Stacy Drake vetted the film and compiled the “Top 10 Lies of HBO’S ‘Game Change.’ ”
