Sarah Palin Releases Video to Slam HBO's 'Game Change'

Mashing up scenes from 'Game Change' and footage featuring the real Palin, the video points out that some facts about the former Alaskan governor are changed in the TV movie.

Sarah Palin is not staying quiet when HBO plans to premiere a TV movie about her without her consent. As it's getting closer to the scheduled premiere date of "Game Change", the female politician has made a video to claim that what's featured in the work is fiction.

The video opens with scenes from "Game Change" and changes the movie's title with "Fact Change". It continues with a montage of footage featuring Palin's performance during her vice presidential candidacy in 2008, which earned praises.

In a statement, Palin wrote, "The screen writer of 'Game Change', Danny Strong, lapsed into a tired routine of manipulating facts and omitting key parts of Governor Palin's story in order to push a biased agenda and drive ratings."

Responding to the backlash from Palin, scribe Strong claimed, "Everything in that video is in the movie." He went on defending "Game Change" as saying, "If they would have seen the film before they attacked it, they would know that we have dramatized everything that they put in their video that Sarah Palin supporters are proud of."

"It tells the truth of the campaign. That is the story of what happened," Strong added. He even praised Palin by stating, "She really is a dynamic person that did a lot of amazing things for that campaign."

Previously, Palin's aides had launched a protest against "Game Change" for its "inaccurate" portrayal of the former Alaskan governor. HBO, however, insisted, "The events depicted in 'Game Change' have been thoroughly sourced by not only Heilemann and Halperin's bestselling book, but also through our own research including extensive first person interviews with those involved with the campaign."

"Game Change" is slated to premiere Sunday, March 10 on HBO. Julianne Moore stars as Palin, with Ed Harris and Woody Harrelson cast as John McCain and McCain's campaign advisor Steve Schmidt respectively.
