It is truly disgusting the way most of the media is portraying Rudy Giuliani’s role in the Borat movie sequel.
I already expect flat-out lies and distortions of reality from Fox News but quite frankly at this point I now expect the same from pretty much the rest of all mainstream media. It is truly disappointing.
1. Rudy is unaware that the girl interviewing him is playing the role of a 15-year-old girl in a movie. He just thinks he’s getting interviewed, so playing it off like he’s some kind of pedophile is inaccurate and insulting to the viewers’ intelligence.
2. When the two go into the bedroom, the actress very overtly tugged at his shirt to purposefully untuck it when she was taking off his microphone. He was most certainly eating up the attention he was getting from the attractive young lady he thought was a reporter throughout the interview scene, but the “compromising” hand down his pants was anything but. Anyone watching honestly and without bias cannot say he was doing anything other than tucking in his shirt because he was clearly just tucking in his shirt.
Do I think that Rudy is a reprehensible human being? Of course, I think that. Does that make it OK to slander him? Not at all.
Do media outlets not understand it’s this kind of manipulation, of obviously innocent circumstances such as this, which causes folks to not trust their content? Shame on them for behaving as bad actors!
