I was a bit disappointed that he did not go about discussing just how the immense wealth that the Koch brothers have plays such an important role in shaping policy. There have been a lot of research on this topic over the last few years, including from Jacob Hacker et al. (The Winner Take All Economy) and Thomas Ferguson (The Golden Rule: The Investment Theory of Political Parties), it would have been nice to see a more indepth look at how the immense wealth that the Koch brothers have plays a role in politics.
Instead the documentary does too much to appeal to emotions, which emotional music and editing. I would have preferred more depth. The Koch brothers are the despicable sons of a despicable John Birch Society founder, they are at the extreme of the right-wing, but this documentary does not does not do that. I would have liked it if Greenwald had gotten together with more filmmakers and perhaps pumped out something far stronger.
Still, it is very valuable for what it is. I held screenings of it in my neighborhood and handed out literature, articles and talks so as to glue the name "Koch" into the heads of people.
The narration is excellent, including not only "Libs"...the Kochs themsleves, in clips, drive the action.
If anyone thinks that Walker in Wisconsin, or any other "Tea Party" exponent across the country, made it to the big dance by grassroots efforts, then think again. And again.
AFP (Americans For Prosperity) can be called another Koch "Front Group" and is another movement for a return to segregation...to voter suppression...to keep driving up the Social Security age. Another Koch-friendly acronym: ALEC (an "exchange" [in lieu of "lobby"] between Koch and legilsators).
Further, Foxnews, may be seen as a kind of unofficial media outlet for Koch muse.
Anyone thinks that the Libs control Education in this country...well, look at the amazing list of uppercrust schools to receive J-B bucks. (Perhaps the impression that the Universities are still, geneerally, not in a hard-right mode suggests that students, parents, educators are saying, keep your freaking money).
Further, if you think that these dudes have had no effect on the environment... (No wonder "deregulation" is a Newscorp mantra-word).
You may enjoy this effort simply for the "I knew that these guys were running the destroy Obama machine!" payoff.
the manipulation and deceit being created by these self serving billionaires.
