As much as conservatives loathed the phrase ”vast right-wing conspiracy,” some of us who are closer to the center had a problem with it as well. Hillary Clinton’s famous ”j’accuse” left out far too much – like, say, the influence of The New York Times in inflating the mirage of corruption that was Whitewater. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that The Hunting of the President, an unabashed piece of documentary advocacy by Harry Thomason and Nickolas Perry, doesn’t let the media off the hook. The film is a sobering chronicle of the depressing circus of persecution and pseudo-scandal that was the Clinton years. But why did the President provoke such ire? A movie with insight into that might actually feel new.
