Also view documentaries with skepticism, because it is too easy to let
propaganda or ?It?s just better theater this way? to cause movie makers to abandon
the truth, and seeing is oft believing.

Gwynne: Generally when they're caught out being too blatantly wrong,
they say 'it was a fictionalised account', or 'it was presenting one
possible interpretation of the event'.
And any movie that's 'based on' certain events is guaranteed to be
totally different to the original.
I also generally have a rule to either read the book or watch the movie,
but not both, because you spend the whole movie muttering '...but that's
not right! That's not how it happened in the book...'
