The scorching hot takes about the new movie “Chappaquiddick” have set fire to the pages of the New York Times and melted the opinion section of NBC News. The latter is still churning out the “Chappaquiddick” reviews with teases that tend to sound more like they could have been written by Kennedy family publicists. Here’s the latest:
Forty-nine years after the mysterious car crash in Chappaquiddick, Massachusetts, that left a woman drowned in a pond and nearly sank the political career of Sen. Ted Kennedy, Hollywood is plumbing the murky depths of the scandal for the first time. https://t.co/kp8h4Qb8aI

Is anybody very unclear about why Kennedy didn’t make it across the bridge and then fled the scene?
Nothing mysterious here. He let a women suffocate in a partially submerged car. Didn't call the police. Didn't help. And didn't have to face any charges.

Real crafty way to frame the story NBC. What it should have said is " Story of how drunk Senator named Kennedy left a girl to die in his car and people kept voting for him ".

This particular article is more of a review of Hollywood’s decision to finally make a movie about Kennedy and Chappaquiddick than it is a review of the actual movie:
Forty-nine years after the mysterious car crash in Chappaquiddick, Massachusetts, that left a woman drowned in a pond and nearly sank the political career of Sen. Ted Kennedy, Hollywood is plumbing the murky depths of the scandal for the first time.
Another day, another “Chappaquiddick” hot take.
Still spinning after all these years. You do you, NBC News.
