Deceptive and Self-Serving Documentary.

Just read this, and you'll understand all:

The Lie At The Heart Of The Postville Documentary Wednesday, November 10, 2010 By Debbie Maimon A documentary on the 2008 Postville ICE raid that highlights government abuse of human rights is hijacked by a political agenda that makes use of a cropped picture of Sholom Mordchai Rubashkin to manipulate the audience.

What begins as a moving historical narrative about the plight of migrant workers in Postville, Iowa, and their harrowing, unjust treatment at the hands of federal agents, degenerates midway into a crude sideshow of Rubashkin-bashing. The film thus falls prey to the same evils it protests.

The documentary, "Abused," which was filmed in Postville and weaves together the personal stories of victims of the raid, is being screened in various locations in the United States, most recently in Manhattan. There is talk of bringing it to Washington, in hopes of attracting the attention of activists and legislators concerned with immigration reform.
