A courageous exposure of media corruption, 11 September 2004
Author: nicholson-3 (nicholson@stanford.edu) from Stanford, CA

This film got me so steamed, confirming all of my instincts about the bias in the media, I now want to quit my job and go work for Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting. It tells the truth (finally) about the corporate take-over and control of citizens' MINDS through relentless right-wing punditry. We are living in a society in which we can be manipulated so easily by headlines and "news alerts"... and the way it happens is by planting the seeds of fear in all of us. War, ideally a far away war with no purpose other than to further line the pockets of the elite, is a perfect scare tactic. We are all Orwell's "Winston." Common Cause and FAIR and other media/election watchdog agencies are heroes.
