Oliver Stone Apologizes


In Monday night’s apology, which he shared in a post on X, Stone said he later saw Barbie and appreciated the film for its originality and themes. “I found the filmmakers’ approach certainly different than what I expected,” Stone said. “I apologize for speaking ignorantly.”

Gee, if Oliver Stone apologized every time he spoke ignorantly, he'd be apologizing forever.


But here's a few questions:



And will he ever apologize for all of his dangerous nonsense on Vladimir Putin and Ukraine?


Hey, join in! Fill in the blank: When will Oliver Stone apologize for ________________?

Over the past several months, I have shown in multiple blog posts how Oliver Stone's documentary series, JFK Revisited and JFK: Destiny Betrayed, misleads viewers. In fact, despite months of work, there are still many more misleading segments that need to be addressed. It's no wonder that the fact checkers of Netflix nixed the airing of the films.


There is a choice between four hours of tendentious nonsense (JFK: Destiny Betrayed) and two hours (JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass). As a handy guide for viewers, here are all those posts in order of their appearance in JFK: Destiny Betrayed and JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass, preceded by some general critiques.
