I haven't yet seen this, but would caution any true progressive to view it with extreme skepticism and a most critical eye: Katrina vanden Heuvel and her father have belonged to some highly questionable organizations [when they have Henry Kissinger as a member they are most certainly below-board], and too many times I've seen disinformation in The Nation's pages, and recall they purged the socialists from their ranks around the 1950s, I believe!
[Last time, some six months or so ago, I read an article in it by the senior editor of fact-checking at The New Yorker, where he characterized the deposed democratically elected president of Guatemala {by the CIA during Eisenhower's time} a communist, when in point of fact he was a capitalist, trying to establish a middle class in his country - - and it contained other falsehoods!]
