    HBO’s “Confirmation” on Justice Clarence Thomas Glosses Over Key Facts

    The more you know

    “Confirmation,” an original film by HBO airs Saturday night. Supposedly, the movie chronicles Justice Clarence Thomas’ Supreme Court Confirmation hearings.

    Many of the writers, producers, and actors in “Confirmation” are Democratic Party donors and loyalists, so the bias isn’t entirely shocking, but it is worth noting.

    A site called Confirmation Biased is out to set the record straight. One of the film’s most egregious offenses is the omission of the numerous woman who testified on behalf of Justice Thomas’ character following the accusations made by Anita Hill.

    Anyone familiar with Justice Thomas’ confirmation hearings knows many woman came to his aid.

    Confirmation Biased also detailed 5 facts “Confirmation” left out:

    I am shocked, shocked I tell you, that HBO would produce something so biased.
    I’m going to go eat worms now!

    Poor Anita was used and now resurrected for another 15 min of fame. After a few more dollars at her expense she will fade away. She cannot recant or stop humiliation that will follow the movie.

      I suspect she had good reason to work so hard to maintain a low profile for the last 25 years. Seems like she wasn’t thrilled about this drama either. (Even HBO cannot bring themselves to suggest it is a documentary.)

    Justice Thomas is one of the finest men to serve on the Supreme Court, both as to his integrity and to his legal mind.

    (See the period?)

    Evidence showed that Hill was a stalker whose advances were not returned by her target.

    But this won’t be in the HBO film.
