Nancy Pelosi’s aspiring filmmaker daughter Alexandra received an incredibly caustic review for her latest “documentary” from the Washington Post’s Michael Leahy.
HBO’s “Right America: Feeling Wronged—Some Voices from the Campaign Trail, which premieres Tuesday evening, is Pelosi’s attempt to providing a forum for Republicans “who saw their hopes and dreams evaporate in the wake of a Democratic victory” in 2008.
“It's drive-by journalism, to put it charitably, a string of stupefyingly brief hit-and-run interviews with a bunch of unidentified people who we know are going to say nothing that will surprise us,” Leahy wrote.
“By then, we've already figured out they're going to be fried by Pelosi's camera. We know they're going to sound like yahoos, often goaded, always reduced to sound bites and caricatures.
