It was a masterpiece, a meditation on two firemen trapped in a darkened tomb of broken concrete, twisted metal and shattered glass. They had rushed headlong into the collapsing skyscrapers, only to be buried alive. So many of their colleagues died, but in the end these heroes were located by searchers and rescued. </p></div><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/bozells-column/olivers-ugly-america" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Bozell's Column News Analysis Division BrentBozell HugoChavez OliverStone Venezuela Sat, 03 Jul 2010 12:12:00 +0000 admin 4789 at http://www.mrc.org Oliver Stone Lauds Hugo Chavez, Criticizes Action Against Iran on ABC's GMA http://www.mrc.org/bias-alerts/oliver-stone-lauds-hugo-chavez-criticizes-action-against-iran-abcs-gma <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/matthew-balan">Matthew Balan</a> </div> </div> </div> <div style="float: right;"><img src="http://www.mrc.org/biasalert/uploads/2010-06-28-ABC-GMA-Steph.jpg" /></div><p>Liberal director Oliver Stone revealed his anti-American bent on Monday's Good Morning America, praising the rise of mainly left-wing leaders across South America and even went so far to support Brazilian President Lula da Silva for "trying to strike to deal with Iran," wildly predicting "<b>it's going to be like North Vietnam again</b>" if the U.S. pursued sanctions against the country. <br /></p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/bias-alerts/oliver-stone-lauds-hugo-chavez-criticizes-action-against-iran-abcs-gma" target="_blank">read more</a></p> BiasAlerts News Analysis Division abc BiasAlert CNN EvoMorales GeorgeStephanopoulos GMA GoodMorningAmerica HugoChavez Iran JohnRoberts leftist liberalmediabias OliverStone SouthAmerica SouthoftheBorder Venezuela Mon, 28 Jun 2010 21:59:00 +0000 36278 at http://www.mrc.org Oliver Stone Made 'Wall Street' Sequel Because Capitalism Caused a 'collapse of our society.' http://www.mrc.org/articles/oliver-stone-made-wall-street-sequel-because-capitalism-caused-collapse-our-society <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/anthony-kang">Anthony Kang</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Oliver Stone’s latest attack on American capitalism – “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” is finally hitting theaters April, 2010, twenty-three years after its predecessor.
