Operation Underground Railroad
3 March 2019 | by ligonlawSee all my reviews

My skepticism meter was pegging when the documentary featured Glenn Beck, Tony Robbins and Orren Hatch as spokespersons. Beck and Hatch are right wingers who have taken the dark side of humanitarian causes and, like so many right-wingers, they have been a fountain of lies. Not really sure what Robbins was doing in the film.

However, the problem and the cause is real, and, the people fighting for the release of children who are being enslaved around the world are doing good work. The documentary and its impact would have been stronger if the pool of on-screen talent were not so lacking in credibility in general. It is entirely possible that Glenn Beck and Orren Hatch are capable of humanitarian, selfless goodwill. So much of their reputation is so caustic and disreputable, it was a mistake to attempt to establish public credibility with controversial talking heads.

So my questions throughout were is this some kind of appeal from a church sect? Is this some sort of effort to attack liberals?

It was none of these things. It was a heart-rending story about the abduction of children, and the efforts of Operation Underground Railroad to locate them and free them.

The story runs into credibility headwinds and would have been better served by a cast of people who have humanitarian credentials.
