What “The Butler” Gets Wrong

Answer: Just about everything.  At least when it comes to Reagan.

I’ve been closeted away all day putting the final touches on a large public lecture I’m delivering tonight at 7 pm at the university, on the subject of why there are so few conservatives in higher education, and I’ll post some excerpts here tomorrow.

But for the last several days I’ve been working with Kiron Skinner, Paul Kengor, and Craig Shirley (all fellow Reagan biographers) on a piece for the Washington Post Sunday Outlook section deconstructing the gross errors and deliberate distortions about Reagan presented in “The Butler.”  The piece is up tonight on the Post website.  Enjoy!
