50 years after the incident at Chappaquiddick, a film is being made about Ted Kennedy’s involvement in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne.
Kennedy, of course, is dead and his political career is distantly in the American rearview mirror. That makes it the perfect time for Hollywood to make a revealing film.
Which is, of course, why Hollywood waited 50 years to greenlight it https://t.co/YNb8HpYwJH

Ben Shapiro was responding to this National Review piece, which postulates that had this film been released in 1970, it would have been a career-ender for Ted Kennedy.

It is also an indictment of a lot of people who, in 1970, stood around and allowed consequences to escape Kennedy.
If the media had done its job in 1970, it would have. https://t.co/FMriFQUpKd

This means that we are going to have to wait at least 30 to 40 years to watch the tell-all film about the manifold scandals of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
But that one will be well worth wait.
