The Ottoman Propoganda Still Alive

A feature film titled "The Promise," starring Christian Bale was released in April of 2017. But even before the release of the film, Turkish message boards lit up with apparently an organized attempt to disparage the film with bad ratings and reviews. This was covered by the Washington Post among other news outlets.

Before the movie was released, there were thousands of 1-star ratings on IMDB with reviews that were clearly politically and ideologically driven most of which had very little to do with the movie. Most of these particular reviews were from users who only had one review...ever, many of whom were registered on IMDB just recently. The facts converge to demonstrate the desperate attempt of the Turkish propaganda machine in yet another attempt to silence or malign the truth.

Here's what you can do to fight the propaganda - go watch the film and leave the rating and review the movie actually deserves.

Armenian Genocide Quotes

"In its attempt to carry out its purpose to resolve the Armenian question by the destruction of the Armenian race, the Turkish government has refused to be deterred neither by our representations, nor by those of the American Embassy, nor by the delegate of the Pope, nor by the threats of the Allied Powers, nor in deference to the public opinion of the West representing one-half of the world."
-- Count Wolff-Metternich
