5.0 out of 5 stars Good Documentary, February 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Media Malpractice (DVD)
While I'm sure this documentary is a little skewed (usually they are), this one hit home with me and put to video the frustrations I had with the 2008 election. The media's godlike worship of Barack Obama was so detrimental to anyone not for him that it was ridiculous. To this day, they are still trying to manipulate political outcomes. Maybe there just wasn't anything to find on Obama, but they blow small things out of proportion with the other candidates, what makes his 58 states comment any different? This video, whether you agree with every line or not, is a very stirring documentary at the very least.

Also, for those of you who discredit Sarah Palin and won't watch it just because she is in it, I have a few reasons why I don't think she's as awful as she was made out to be:
1. As this video points out, she isn't the one who said "I can see Russia from my house", she simply said that there is a place in Alaska where you can. Tina Fay is the one that said that and people assumed she was quoting directly.
2. Sarah Palin is not stupid. I'm not saying she's super smart or anything, but she isn't stupid. I've read part of one of her books and although she is definitely conservative, but that doesn't make her an idiot by any means. In fact, I found her to be much more intelligent than she is given credit for. Please remember that every candidate is human and will make mistakes occasionally while talking to reporters.
3. She and her family seem to be much better people than they are ever given credit for. Last summer, after the tornadoes tore through Arizona, she and her husband went to Arizona and helped with the cleanup. And by helped, I don't mean that they went down there and talked on cameras about how everyone should come help these people regain their lives. They went down there and worked. The only reason that I even knew that they did this is because a reporter briefly mentioned them at the bottom of a small article about the destruction and the cleanup process in my local small town paper. I never saw any other stories about them even being there. This is stark contrast to every other politician or celebrity I have ever seen "helping" after something like this. They usually would rather stand in front of a camera for maybe an hour and talk about how much someone else can do to help. I rarely see or hear about celebrity types doing as much work for as little recognition. Honestly, I doubt she even knew that she was in the story at all.

So, I just like to remind people not to judge or put on a pedestal anyone that they don't know personally. Give this video a chance and take from it what you will.
