HANNITY: "THE HOPE AND THE CHANGE"
Fox News Channel, 9:00 p.m. ET
Citizens United, the same organization that successfully challenged existing campaign finance laws and opened political races up to the monetary excesses of Super PACs, has a new trick up its conservative sleeve: It’s produced a film, The Hope and the Change, that will be unveiled officially at next week’s Republican National Convention, then go into a planned limited theatrical release. Previous slickly produced biographical films, at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, have extolled the virtues of their respective candidates. This one, though, spends its time attacking the opposition, with an anti-Barack Obama narrative. For political TV, and for convention politics in general, that’s quite a change. And it gets a sneak preview here, on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel program, in a special program devoted entirely to Citizens United’s politically charged new film. This is not a recommendation, just a notification – television history, in a way, is being made here.
