Skip to comments.BH Interview: Filmmaker Mike McNulty on Giving Voters the Fast and Furious Facts
Posted on 05/12/2012 5:41:50 AM PDT by marktwain
Colo.-based Michael McNulty has been watching the media give scant attention to the scandal, one which involves U.S. letting arms cross into Mexico as part of an anti-gunning running probe and has GOP officials scrambling to get Attorney General Eric Holder to reveal all the information behind the matter.
Now, McNulty has had enough.
The filmmaker, who won an Emmy for his Waco documentary, is back behind the camera because, as he puts it, the press has failed to do its job.
Ive sat and watched this mess percolate for the better part of the year, McNulty tells Big Hollywood. And while camera men and reporters alike might want to tackle a story involving drugs, automatic weapons, murder and mayhem, the press hasnt grabbed hold of the story like other political scandals.
On the grunt level, the guy behind the camera you find a genuine enthusiasm for the story and pursuing it, he says. Its the assignment editor who starts the ball rolling. It aint happening at that level. I suspect the marching orders the assignment editors get is, leave it alone.
McNulty wont. And he has faith he can wrap "Blood on their Hands" in time for the November elections. Perhaps even earlier.
We think that having such an important issue thats been in the news somewhere brought forth with some factual truth being presented is important, he says. This is not a Democratic or Republican political issue. Its a moral issue about right and wrong. If this had been a Republican Attorney General Id take the same approach Im taking now. Its about people being killed under the aegis of our government in another country.
McNulty served time in the Vietnam War as a photographer, and hes seen some of the atrocities of war.

“If this had been a Republican Attorney General Id take the same approach Im taking now.”
If this was a Republican Attorney General this would have been and would still have been the headlining the msm, day after day, hour after hour, minute after minute, the msm would have been turning the media spit roasting alive the, for lack of a better word, fool(s) who ochestrated this evil scheme. This was not done for the betterment of the country this was done to further agenda, to cause outrage among the ill informed and overturn the 2nd amendment.
It makes me think of Iran-Contra and what a HUGE scandal the media turned that into.
They’re just murdering the Mexicans that Americans are too lazy to murder themselves.
First post of the day for me and it made me smile.
It's an absolute travesty that these partisan “journ-O-lists” have perpetuated upon us. So when they pompously assure us they're not biased think on this case, and juxtaposed it to, as you rightly said, Iran-Contra. The biased, mainstream, left wing, driveby democrat-party media still has vast power, and there's not much we can do except to drum beat against them, never watch them or read them and hopefully starve them to death with lost revenue.
Oh, and “Faux” News is evil and the FCC should pull all their licenses!
