Portrait of a hypocritical media whore
10 January 2005 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

It's hard to watch this movie glorify one of the most unpleasant people I have ever read about. Her work is specious, and her envy laden attitudes towards people who do far more to protect children on the internet is shameful.

That Annie Potts would give interviews calling Posey 'brave' and 'admirable' when Posey actually spends an inordinate amount of time trying to prevent other more reputable groups from doing exactly what she did, but on a larger more successful scale, causes me to have a very negative reaction whenever I see Potts on the screen any more.

It may be possible for some people to watch this movie, and separate the character in the movie from the embittered hypocrite Posey is in real life, but it's hard for me to do so. Posey does like making money off of her work, if you visit her website, while others would do such an important job for free.

Sometimes a movie can be overwhelmed by its inaccuracies, presenting a view so slanted, that is other merits may be ultimately ignored.

This takes the cake.
