What is wrong with people?

The other day I was at the Tampa film festival, I got lucky to have VIP tickets and was invited to the before and after party and the hole experience was absolutely wonderful. Great energy, beautiful setting in the Tampa venue, wine, champagne, gourmet food, the whole nine yards. I was in heaven and thought this is the perfect evening UNTILL we sat down to see the movie. The guy next to me was very chatty and asked if I was an actress "Nooooooooo" Then he wanted to know if I was a Producer "Nooooooooo" He went on to tell me that he had also made a movie, a documentary about Cuba and that it will be shown tomorrow. I looked at him and said
"Interesting, (The guy was a 20 something year old redhead) how many years have you lived there? Long story short, it turn out, he never was in Cuba, actually never left Florida at all, he got a bunch of pictures and videos from his school teacher a few years back and did the rest of his research on the internet. I was very glad the movie started so I did not have to tell him what I thought about this. What is wrong with people?

Can you imagine doing a documentary about a country that you have never been to? The best part is that people will see it and BELIEVE it.

Personal Service, always.

Your title is a big question! Sounds like this guy was either (1) hitting on you or (2) trying to pitch his product to "somebody!"

Anne, journalists, talking heads do it all the time. Know nothing about a subject. Take a serious one, try to make a comic book out of it with a catchy sound bite. Pump it up, sensationalize and scare. Add some make a name for myself journalistic spin for a clever presentation. Add graphics, images, and in 30 seconds or less try to sum it up for the viewers at home eating the cheesos, knitting, believing every word. Taking it in hook, line and sinker.

Unfortunately, the internet has provided the means for smoke and mirror, and you're correct, some poor soul will fall for whatever is out there.
