When Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker stripped state workers of their union rights in 2011, was it simply a classic face-off between labor and management, or a bold political move designed to weaken his party's political opposition?

PBS refused to air this program after scores of objective falsehoods were found by PBS fact checkers.
Oh and no mention that this documentary itself was in large part funded by big political donors for the DNC and unions in Wisconsin for the DNC? so unions, often giving their members' dues money to Democrat candidates without the agreement of their members is ok?
How about a documentary on the fact that while 57% of US union member are Democrats, the unions give 99.9% of their political money to the Democrat party? And that is WAY more money than all citizens sited funds.
Fact: Republican citizens in Wisconsin unions were forced -- without consent -- to give more money to the Democrats in Wisconsin than all Koch spending in that state.
