Hypocrites come in all shapes and sizes. And when it comes to politics, hypocrisy is just part of the game. But the press only tends to cover half the story. For decades, the American people have benefited from the media's meticulous investigation of hypocrisy among conservative leaders. Meanwhile, liberal hypocrisy gets a free pass. But not any more. These days, you can't turn on the television or open a newspaper without finding liberal politicians, professors, pop stars, and pundits blaming the world's problems on America's free enterprise system, its democratic tradition, and its core values of individualism and self-reliance. But how sincere are they about their beliefs? How do they live? The answers will shock you. In a film that will forever change how we see America and its leaders, filmmakers Nicholas Tucker and Lucas Abel take us on an unforgettable journey through a political landscape filled with hypocrites and humbugs. Along the way, they reveal a disturbing national ... Written by
This documentary takes a shot at the liberals who say one thing and do the opposite. They use Michael Moore, Noam Chomsky, The Kennedys, Al Gore, Hilary Clinton and George Soros as liberals who claim to hate capitalism, but in reality have their own capitalistic exploits they keep on the down low.
Many aspects of this are informative. However, their approach is childish when they use some guy named Kip who poses as rich person and shares with us his insights of how to make it rich while being a liberal. It has him dressed like a banker and begging for support on the streets of NY. The irony is embarrassing, and it doesn't stop there. They try and confront Michael Moore about his investments that he claims he never had, and it goes so far as to send him a cake with his tax return on it. Although this is a Michael Moore tactic, it really looks pathetic and undermines any credibility this film might have had. They then try and confront Sen Kennedy who is caught off guard and embarrassed. Why not be more civil and invite them to a panel discussion or ask them to explain what the controversies were all about and ask for a press release. I know these are not the best answers, but neither is trying to humiliate a person in front of a camera.
In regards to George Soros, he does not hide what he did in currency speculation. It is something anyone could have done, and he should not be faulted because he has liberal views.
It did have a good soundtrack and was better quality film than many documentaries. It is too bad that the potential was squandered with unprofessional journalism.
