The City Journal published an excellent piece this week on how Hollywood invented a legend in regards to the gay San Francisco supervisor, Harvey Milk. He was the subject of a recent Oscar-nominated film, and the actor who played him won the Best Actor award. Turns out, it was all a screenwriter's sham. The real Harvey Milk "was a short-tempered demagogue who cynically invented stories of victimhood to advance his political career." He also strongly supported Jim Jones up until Jones poisoned his entire following.

This is sort of old news by now, but I just found out. Harvey Milk was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama.
