There is a common wisdom, that leaders, once dead, are to be praised. On that basis, monsters like Genghis Khan and Adolf Hitler, should be well-spoken of, as having somehow done good for their tribe or nation.
Current media and history fakers follow that formula. So, George W. Bush, known by some critics, as "The Butcher of Texas", for throwing away the lives of young Americans, without a purpose for America, should be eulogized when he is gone.
Ronald W. Reagan, as head of the Screen Actors Guild and as FBI stool pigeon, falsely fingered numerous fellow actors and actresses, as "Communists", making them unemployable and ruining their careers. His first wife, for this and related reasons, dumped him.
For many years thereafter, Ronnie was a front-man and war-mongering propagandist for General Electric, as the mainstay of the TV Network production, "General Electric Theater". He and his patrons viciously hated the Al Gore family of Tennessee. Why? The Gores were instrumental in promoting the Tennessee Valley Authority, that brought cheap electricity to their state.
