Once Again, The Facts Have a Liberal Bias?

A review of the movie, Conviction, on Netflix:
Acting was good. Ugly cast. Story was tiring. Evil cops and DA's, innocent criminal killers. Typical liberal slant. Boring!!!
The film was... based on a true story in which the defendant ended up serving life in prison due to police and prosecutorial misconduct. (And as much as you could make a movie about, say, Roger Coleman, it wouldn't be very interesting.) I wonder what the author of the review would make of The Thin Blue Line.

Wasn't there once a day when you could interest conservatives in freeing the wrongfully convicted, or did Wm. F. Buckley, Jr.'s experience end that experiment.

    If it didn't it, it should have.

  2. No, it should have made conservatives aware that narcissistic self-assurance is not even close to the same thing as being either objective or correct.

  3. I tend to find "narcissistic self-assurance" to be a negative at both ends of the political spectrum (and across it, for that matter) but particularly so when it involves ivory tower types substituting their judgement for the judicial systems . . .

  4. So, definitely not a Buckley fan?
