Of course, Al Gore got hosed in Florida. Absolutely more voters intended to vote for Al Gore than George Bush. But Al Gore had a lot a voters too challenged to get it right and after the votes were counted and recounted he came up a tad short.
I went into this movie hoping to learn something I already didn't know. No such luck. It was obvious the movie was slanted or bias to omit facts that favored George Bush.
For example, all of the counties with the problems were Democratic controlled counties and they ran the voting process. They were responsible.
For example, the absent overseas votes, the movie only mentioned the late post marked votes, but the much larger problem were the thousands of envelopes with no post mark. Why should these Bush favored votes all be thrown out because the Armed Forces does a sloppy job of post marking.
For example, the Florida Supreme court was rewriting election laws to aid Al Gore. The law sets a specific deadline date in compliance with the electoral college deadlines and to avoid the chaos that ensured. For example, the new services joined together to count every votes and they reported that George Bush won more votes, but the movie flipped that conclusion to suit their liberal agenda.
They may fool impressionable minds, but by disregarding both sides of the story, this documentary is false. All they had to do is try to be more fair and balanced, because Al Gore did get hosed.
