Nice:

Worried about how former president Ronald Reagan and his wife, Nancy, are portrayed in an upcoming CBS miniseries, the Republican Party asked the network Friday to submit the program to historians for review or label it as not historically accurate.

"... I respectfully request that you inform your viewers via a crawl every 10 minutes that the program is a fictional portrayal of the Reagans and the Reagan Presidency, and they should not consider it to be historically accurate," [said RNC Chairman Ed Gillespie].


Nothing says defensive like overweening interest in a miniseries.
