Bought this stupid propaganda piece thinking it was at the very least an impartial bio on the legendary journalist
12 March 2019 | by kvnbhovisSee all my reviews

I wanted to watch a documentary about Heart not a puff piece by the Heart Corporation about the Hearst empire. They produced this garbage. It is an hour and a half long and only 30 minutes is spent on his life. This documentary fails on so many levels but the other critic pretty much covered the flaws in detail. Gotta add that I love Leonard Maltin but since when is he an expert on Hearst the man? Also, why in heaven's name is Gurley Brown in this piece and praised as a role model for women. She exploited women as much as Larry Flynt or Hugh Hefner. Cosmo is utter trash. Do not watch!!!!
