4. The Hugo Chavez Show TV-NR CC

Frontline looks at Venezuela's controversial and outspoken president Hugo Chavez and the revolution he claims is turning his country into an anti-capitalist beacon for Latin America and the world. Through the lens of his unique weekly program "Al? Presidente" and the eyes of the Venezuelans who know him well, Frontline digs beneath the surface of his presidency and his personality to try to understand the mercurial leader.

Frontline covers so many topics, and always with topnitch journalistic professionalism, it should be required viewing for all voters to keep America strong, as per T. Jefferson's observation: "An educated electorate is the only hope of a democracy." Remember radio stations that used to characterize their content as "Easy Listenin'"? Unfortunately, the declining state of journalism, and rise of Easy Learnin' sends us ever farther down the rathole towards an electorate that chooses Facebook and 5-second snippets they think of as "The News" purveyed on the -oh-so-convenient Internet. Thank you, Frontline, for fighting what may be a rear guard battle against creeping ignorance; it may be a losing battle, but it clearly is delaying America's descent into Huxley's Brave New World nightmare.

This particular Frontline topic affects everyone, and everyone should see it. Fantastic video footage with great journalism. Also see "Food Inc." and "King Corn" (not Frontline videos) which are just as well done and relevant to everyone.

It is disheartening that global business practices have come to this, but I don't think it's anything new. Though backroom deals seem to be a mainstay of business practice, I guess I'm most discouraged that nobody is held accountable and it simply goes on. In fact, a snippet from the "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room" documentary quotes a young employee laughing at the havoc that their practices create. If I'm correct, in Frontline's documentary, "The Warning", another finance-type speaks of how his company's derivative products are "financial wet dreams" and they "cleaned their client's clock" on the deal. Y'know, it almost doesn't even matter what message this sends to the engineering students who jump over into the world of finance because I SINCERELY believe that we reap what we sow. Just pray for the poor dumb bastards.

I appreciated the presentation. I felt it was insightfuk, informative and provocative. My problem was that it cut off in the middle of the presentation so I had to find the remainder of it on You Tube. For this reason I would not purchase another viewing on Amazon.

Overall, Frontline provides factual and informative information that is thoughtful and powerful. The series "Money, Power and Wall Street" is a fantastic primer for those of us who are versed in finance that explains the 2008 financial crisis in the US. I strongly recommend watching "Money, Power and Wall Street".

As a middle school science teacher, I wanted to watch this episode again to refresh my ideas before talking about it with my students. Being able to purchase just the episode I needed and to watch it when I wanted was excellent and perfectly fit my needs.
