I am a libertarian just like the director of the movie and I have to say he is spot on. After watching this I am deeply disturbed on how bias our media is. The movie very well illustrates just how in the tank they were for Obama. No media outlet properly vetted him and those who tried where silenced by the media. It really is a must watch for any American who considers themselves to be fair minded.

I must admit, a few times at the 30-45 minute mark I had trouble staying focused. Looking back I think that was when the narrator / writer / director talked too much. The strength of the film is when he let's the media convict themselves. It's not that I didn't enjoy the narrator / writing, because I did, but in those few times it seemed a boring classroom lecture.

Don't let the partisan reviews here fool you. Mr Ziegler states in the movie that he is a libertarian who mostly votes Democrat. The huge bulk of the movie is the media caught on tape, like a wonky Girls Gone Wild of the political world. It isn't a result of cute editing or any of the logic games one reviewer accused him of. It's a pretty straight-forward self-indictment of the media's own words. Fans of Ms Clinton will be interested in watching this movie as well. The first half of the movie is devoted to examining the Democratic primary.

Here's a suggestion if you are still undecided, rent it or watch it at the various streaming sites (looks like Amazon is doing this now but I watched it on my home device). Then, like me, if you like it (80% of the electorate will) proceed to buy it, which is what I plan to do.

I highly doubt the partisan's here have actually watched it, so you can probably safely ignore them.

My main takeaway lesson from this video is that each of us should take personal responsibility in vetting the facts we hear from the media, particular as we have a vast wealth of information at our fingertips. Check and double-check facts before casting your vote!

This did a good job of not promoting a candidate or political party, but rather exposed the media's complete biased reporting during the 2008 campaign. You can't deny the evidence.

It is absolutely obvious from this documentary that America (especially TV personalities) wanted a black president so badly that they were willing to stack the deck and ignore normal candidate issues in favor of electing Obama at all costs. Admittedly he is a wonderful speaker and handles audiences well. He has few other characters that qualify him for his post. This movie shows this clearly. It's a great example of crowd dynamics determining the outcome when logic should have prevailed. John McCain was the qualified candidate, so to get him out of the running they attacked Sarah Palin. I guess anything goes when a fairy tale candidate is the darling choice over someone who could have gotten something accomplished at the federal level.

"Give me a break. This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I've ever seen..." - Bill Clinton on the Obama presidential campaign, January 8 2008 (as quoted in the movie).

This documentary lays out how full of it the 'news media' is when it comes to real news. They convinced the American people to elect a known fraud as President in 2008 with full knowledge of what bogus nonsense they were peddling.

"Media Malpractice" reminds us of the truth. And it hurts.

It's not exactly shocking news that the media is biased, but many Americans do not realize the extent of the bias. This documentary illustrates that fact with repeated statements from the pro-Obama media. Media Malparactice is tremendous;even long after the election it is well worth watching. A nonpartisan observer will never look at the media the same way again. Whatever your opinion of Palin (mine is fairly low), it's hard to watch this movie without gaining some sympathy for her. And also some disgust at Katie Couric.

A stunning documentary on the huge role the major media played in influencing the 2008 Presidential Election. See the various well known Media people expose their bias in their own words.

While the perception that Media is intentionally slanted in it's coverage of news is nothing new, John Ziegler has done a masterful job of documenting the bias in this fast paced and entertaining work. At times shocking, other times LOL funny, regardless of your political ideology, this film will make it difficult to ever view the National Media as objective again.
