Jen Senko is mourning the loss of her father … to the right-wing media machine.
The documentary filmmaker says her dad changed for the worse after getting a steady dose of Fox News and other conservative outlets. This genteel soul suddenly hated gay people, minorities and even … Democrats.
Her upcoming film, The Brainwashing of My Dad, tries to explain just what happened. The film, hitting New York and L.A. theaters March 18, suggests conservative new media is brimming with hateful messages folks like Senko’s father lap up.
