(Newser) – Sarah Palin has called Game Change a "false narrative," but a former top campaign adviser isn't so sure. Nicolle Wallace tells ABC News that the HBO film was "true enough to make me squirm." This "is a movie about the vast gray area where 99% of our politics actually takes place," Wallace says. "You’re just feeling your way though a gray area and doing your best, and that campaign was one of those instances for me."

This weekend, Palin told Fox News that she wasn't "concerned about an HBO movie based on a false narrative when there are so many other things to be concerned about," adding that "being in the good graces of Hollywood’s 'Team Obama’ isn’t top of my list.” Wallace, who was a leading Palin handler in 2008 and was a character in the HBO film, has expressed doubts about Palin's candidacy in the past, saying she was "concerned" about the former governor's dramatic changes in mood, ABC notes. She based a mentally ill character in a novel on Palin.
