I forced myself to watch the 2019 film Bombshell. It is about the Fox News sexual scandals that led to the downfall of Bill O’Reilly, Roger Ailes, Gretchen Carlson, and Megyn Kelly. Expecting a far-left propaganda lecture, I was pleasantly surprised at the entertainment value.

To be clear, this is indeed a film that aims to hurt President Trump and his base of Fox News viewers. However, pretty much all media is that way now.

Putting those flaws aside, the film very entertainingly exposes the sleaze behind the Fox News wall (and likely many other networks that are propaganda outlets for the far-left). I was associated with Fox and am suing them now. So, I found the film quite interesting.

Charlize Theron does a stunningly good job, aided by miraculous facial prosthetics, of portraying Megyn Kelly. She even imitated her hoarse voice. Nicole Kidman and Margot Robby were less impressive. The gratuitous character played by Kate McKinnon ruined the film. I had to fast-forward through her segments.

For me, this film was surreal because I have crossed paths with so many of the characters. I feel like Zelig or Forest Gump.
