Unrealistic, but interesting
10 November 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a rather interesting, albeit unrealsitic look at the power of the media in politics. James Garner gives a fantastic performance. The story keeps you interested as to the characters motivations. While its nothing earth shattering its a decent cable political drama.
