An excellent program buy why isn't the entire country outraged?
28 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of all the shocking revelations in "Bush Family Fortunes: The Best Democracy Money Can Buy (2004)," the worst is that the country is not exposed to a credible presentation of those facts by our main stream media or by credible spokespersons. No contrary facts are presented - rather a dead(ly) silence. Does the Bush family (and more importantly the big money interests they represent), have our media so cowed that they are afraid of discussion, analysis or serious investigation of the massive corruption of those that put Pres. G.W. Bush in office or the empire building and money grabbing of he and his ilk??

So many Americans blindly see him as merely a not so intelligent plain folks guy who is at least honest and moral.
