A new Twitter-Hyped Netflix Series is unsurprisingly more about trashing America’s law enforcement than providing entertainment. The series, “Unbelievable,” was described by Mike Hale of the New York Times as a “fictional retelling” of two really mean white male police detectives who did not believe a rape victim. The rapist, of course, was eventually caught and rots in prison to this day.
The drama’s obvious real purpose, of course, is to place doubt in police and “the system” as a whole, reminiscent of the recent propaganda series American Factory.
Not surprisingly, one of the creators of the series, Michael Chabon, expressed in June 2017 that his strong desire to wake up and find out President Trump was dead.
He said, as reported at the Daily Wire:
“Every morning I wake up and in the seconds before I turn my phone on to see what the latest news is, I have this boundless sense of optimism and hope that this is the day that he is going to have a massive stroke, and, you know, be carted out of the White House on a gurney. And every day so far, I have been disappointed in that hope. But, you know, hope springs eternal. He’s an old guy, he doesn’t eat well, he’s overweight. He has terrible nutrition. He doesn’t exercise and it is that not that hard to imagine.”
The series is based on a 2015 article by T. Christian Miller of ProPublica and Ken Armstrong of The Marshall Project “that won a Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting.”
Based on some of the Tweets, the series has achieved it’s objective:
Take a step back to understand ProPublica. In November 2007, billionaire Herb Sandler “announced that he had taken on the task of helming the board of the new organization ProPublica and that his family foundation would be giving $10 million a year to support the group.” The late Herb Sandler and his late wife Marion Sandler made their fortune by giving bad government-backed mortgage loans to people who could not afford them before the government-created recession in 2008.
Even Slate journalist Jack Shafer has raised questions about the late Sandler’s involvement in ProPublica. Noting their millions of dollars in donations to far-left causes, Shafer wrote:
“What do the Sandlers want for their millions? Perhaps to return us to the days of the partisan press.”
As far as the series, the director of the first three episodes was quoted as saying: “It’s compelling but really the point of it is that it’s bringing a point home in a way that’s deeply emotional and brings a conversation to the table.”
Are you as sick as this author is of being preached to by Netflix?
As Hale writes:
“When it came to the larger issues illuminated by Marie’s case — the failure to believe a rape victim’s account, the underrepresentation of women among detectives investigating rapes — Armstrong and Miller (who receive producing credits on the series) mostly let the events speak for themselves. “Unbelievable” stays close to the reserved tone of the article, but it appears to be less confident that the viewer will get the lessons about justice and equality — every so often putting a speech about them into a character’s mouth just to be sure.” (author emphasis)
Ugh. Hard Pass.
