PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Conservative author and film maker Dinesh D’Souza accused the major media outlets of ignoring his latest documentary film, Hillary’s America, in order to help Democrats win the White House in November.
D’Souza told Rich Zeoli on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT that news networks don’t even pretend to be fair.
“We, sort of, have a media that resembles the old Soviet media. These people are actually shameless and they have no scruples. Our movie is a small example. We’ve got the biggest political movie in the country, not a whisper from CNN, ABC, NBC. Now, if I were Michael Moore, they’d be fawning all over me. I’d be on Good Morning America, The Today Show, it would never stop. But because this movie runs against their world view, they don’t even have the guts to debate it. That’s because they don’t know anything. They’re mere cheerleaders for the Democratic camp.”
He insists the media is invested in helping Hillary Clinton defeat Donald Trump.
“I expect this to be a ferociously hard fought election. Trump and the Republicans have an uphill climb just, partly, because the media is such a huge megaphone and when the left has Hollywood and the media, that’s some pretty powerful voices working against you.”
D’Souza was also puzzled as to why the Republican party hasn’t done more to embrace his film.
“We have a movie, it’s in 1200 theaters around the country. If I were Michael Moore, the whole Democratic party would be behind me. You would think that the RNC would be behind this film, saying listen, how can we help you get the word out. I have haven’t heard one whisper from those guys. I don’t get it.”
