Storyline

November 22, 1963. President John F. Kennedy has just been assassinated and Vice President Lyndon Johnson is now President. One of his first acts as President is to reaffirm the US government's intention to pass the Civil Rights Act. This Act was drafted while JFK was in office and gives people of all races the same rights, including voting rights, access to education and access to public facilities. However, he faces strong opposition to the bill, especially from within his own party. He will have to use all his political will and cunning to get it through. Written by grantss

Too Nice to be True
17 October 2016 | by pierrebarberisSee all my reviews

My comment is not about the movie itself but about the totally biased characterization it gives of LBJ. This movie/TV show is part of a grand design to rebuild the image of the USA and of its "grand leaders". LBJ here looks as if he was a perfect human being, caring for the blacks and a totally remarkable and laudable person. May be he was for this HR fight, but it shades all the rest,the notoriously corrupt politician, and the likely to be underground leader of the plot who killed Kennedy. Read all the books about him.

I think it is worth to be mentioned.

And BTW how unsound is this rule that you need to write 10 lines to make a point?
