Warning: Political TV Shows Are Not Real Life

Barney Frank: "House of Cards, the Netflix series, has no stronger relation to political reality than the ratings given by Standard and Poor's to packages of subprime mortgages had to economic truth."

"Having watched several episodes, I agree that it is well acted. My problem is that it might mislead people into thinking that this is the way our political system actually works. It is not."
