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!

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.

Great points about the power of the media. But HEAVILY biased towards the right, and I smelled a bit of racism among its points. That seemed to kill its objectivity less than halfway in. And apparently, Mr. Ziegler has a severe crush on Sarah Palin, who is featured in a very flattering light for at least 30 minutes of this video. She was wronged, and quite badly, but we got the point after the first five times he stated that. If you're not familiar with the power of corporate media, this film will at least open your eyes.

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.

This is an informational documentary regarding the slants that the media has regarding politics, especially in the way that candidates are interviewed. I found it to be eye-opening and am viewing the "news" more intelligently.

I was expecting non-bias info on politics in general. This disappointed me because of the title leaving the impression that it on nobodies side. I watched the media coverages for 08 and 12, and always had to watch HLN, CNN, AND FOX in order to figure out the truth. But one thing I learned when a person claims to be giving you "REAL" honest news, the don't give one sided stories to sway people opinion. They always wanted you to draw your own conclusions. And the documentary was totally bogus! I hate I spent $2.99 for it.
