Sarah Palin's camp's got some problems about HBO's upcoming docu-drama, Game Change.
Jason Recher, an aide to the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008 stated that he was told by Game Change's writer, Danny Strong, that he'd be able to see the script before the TV flick came out.
You know where this is going…Strong "reneges" and Recher is pissed.
Recher contacted Strong to see the script by the writer replied and stated that HBO wouldn't allow him to see it and HBO didn't give Recher or six other Palin aides a DVD.
Strong tells his side of the story:
It is true that I interviewed Jason Recher to get his side of the story. He was one of 25 people involved with the McCain-Palin campaign that were interviewed for the movie.
I did not offer to show him the script. I did not offer to show him the film. HBO offered to show Gov. Palin the film several weeks ahead of its debut and she declined the offer.
Beef squashed? Far from it…
Meg Stapleton claims that McCain's strategist, Steve Schmidt, is a "world class bully." Game Change is primarily told from Schmidt's point of view and Stapleton claims the media took the story and movie too far.
When it comes down to it, many believe the film makes Palin look fairly dumb.
The film shows scenes of Palin lacking basic knowledge and many advisors, including Palin herself, call the film a false narrative.
We'll find out what happens when Game Change premieres!
