Fair and balanced

Oliver Stone has announced his next film: Bush, which will chronicle the life of our current president. According to the director, Josh Brolin is slated to play W.

First, after the abhorrent box office of recent left-leaning political films (Rendition, Lions for Lambs, Redacted), I can't believe he's getting anybody to finance this.

Second, this is how he claims to be presenting an even-handed portrayal:

"Here, I'm the referee, and I want a fair, true portrait of the man. How did Bush go from an alcoholic bum to the most powerful figure in the world?"

Alcoholic bum? Oh yeah, this film is going to be a crowning achievement in objectivity.
