Quotes

Himself - Independent journalist: Media executives for the most part - people who make decisions on what's on television - are really some of the most ill-informed people when it comes to the news itself. The choices that are made are entertainment-based: Who's pretty? Who speaks English? These are things that I'm asked when I'm pitching a story. They're not going to watch a bunch of bodies exhumed from a gravesite, and seeing law enforcement held accountable; that's not something that's savory.

Sush a shame more people haven't seen this
1 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I came to this movie today (just missed the first few minutes) and was held transfixed for the rest of the movie. The sad fact is that - hardly anybody will have seen this and hardly anybody will care. The standards of journalism (the whole of modern media, unfortunately) have diminished to such an extent that the current President of America has managed to become acceptable to nearly half of America and yet he is a known misogynist and racist. The film spends most of its time showing how Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama cannot be trusted either - to represent the people. It is scary how much that un-elected people in power are in control and they do not represent the people either ie you and I can do nothing to stop them
