Editor Attacked for Film Review

Dear Salient,

John Ryall, who prides himself on objective reporting, has hit an all time low with his review of "All the Presidents Men".

How can anybody sit and pass such judgements as 'American Society is based at all levels on the use of money and power for personal ends', when he can't even get his facts straight?

What bloody film was he at? Well let's get things clear, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, (two of the finest journalists ever, by the way), work for the Washington Post not the Washington Star!

If you had taken your dark glasses off John you might have got your facts right, yet you dare sit in your ivory tower and criticize. Shame on you!


T. Ruth.

p.s. name us a socialist state that doesn't have some sort of power as its base difference is it's the power of elites!

I have never claimed to be objective something which "All the President's Men" does claim. I apologise for the typographical error with "Star" rather than "Post".

Perhaps if you had analysed my argument rather than doing the Salient proofreading we may have been able to progress in our understanding of the movie as an art form Ed.
