It’s all Politics

Syriana was reviewed by both Gazeta Wyborcza and Rzeczpospolita on March 3rd. But did the reviewers see the same version? Poor Jacek Szczerba in GW seems to be under the impression that it is a documentary: he praises the US for allowing this pack of anti-US lies to be produced and distributed, even though it “stinks of poster paint”. If McCarthy were alive, he jokes (ha ha), he would be raising the alarm about crypto-communists in the American film industry.

Rafal Swiatek for Rzeczpospolita, on the contrary, says the film “avoids demagogic tricks” and conveys its message in an understated way.

Is Rafal Swiatek blind to propaganda or has Gazeta Wyborcza’s devotion to the US surpassed that of Tony Blair?
