Bias
20 January 2020 | by golddemon-67713See all my reviews

I was hoping that it would present both sides since there were interviews with conservatives as well. Unfortunately, interviews and information were cherry picked to present a bias view instead of presenting both sides fairly and letting the viewer decide. It's sad that public money was used on this film. It's essentially a propaganda piece.
