Barney Frank Tells Conan He Would Ban 'House Of Cards'

Barney Frank, who served as a member of the House of Representatives until 2013, tells Conan O'Brien he would ban 'House Of Cards' because the hit is wildly inaccurate.

"I'm a great believer in free speech but if I was going to make an exception I would ban 'House of Cards' from being shown," says Frank.

"It is the most inaccurate, misleading and unfortunately gives people a bad idea. We sump from people saying what's the point of vote something it doesn't do any good? And 'House of Cards' reinforces all of that inaccurate impression."

"The best show ever done about politics was 'The West Wing'. One of my friends said about that, first of all, we're not that evil, secondly, we're not that clever."

"If the guy from 'House of Cards' was in the escape room he'd have been out in a minute and a half. In 'The West Wing' you saw real people trying to do the right thing, stubbing their toe, getting it wrong and getting it right. 'House of Cards' is negative. I don't watch all the others to be honest."
