Clint Eastwood to Direct Movie About Media Victim Richard Jewell
Jewell was a 34-year-old security guard at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, rightfully hailed as a hero after he discovered a backpack filled with explosives and risked his own life to evacuate the area.
Unfortunately for Jewell, the acclaim didn’t last long. He was overweight, white, and a southerner — the perfect target for our left-wing media… And so, three days later the media reported the F.B.I. was looking at him as a possible suspect. There was zero evidence against Jewell.
The unquestioning, totally irresponsible, and reckless media went to town on Jewell, portraying him as a pathetic mama’s boy, a fat guy who failed at law enforcement, a clown in a security guard uniform who planted the bomb to make himself a hero.
After he was exonerated, Jewell successfully sued NBC News, the New York Post, and CNN. https://www.breitbar...richard-jewell/
Defenders of the status quo are always stronger than reformers seeking change,
UNTIL the status quo self-destructs from its own corruption, and the reformers are free to build on its ashes.
