Not actually biased as the review-bots would have you think
5 December 2019 | by sanctus-57984See all my reviews

I've been following the series for a while now and every episode is interesting and exciting while providing some quite in depth data. It seems to me that just because it's a show that exposes some of the problems in the world it's automatically tagged as "biases", "leftist" (is there anything even wrong with being leftists or rightist?), or that it doesn't provide the other point of view. Does it actually lie or mislead? NO and I have yet to find one thing that's incorrect. To me it would seem that every time there's a show that shows some evidence against certain more corrupt politicians/institutions/countries or against certain broken systems said actors profit from, it's automatically labelled as "leftwing propaganda" and biased (without any actual arguments / evidence).

I don't even usually post reviews but I sometimes read them and reading the ones here made me nauseous over how aggressive they are. I sure hope most sane people don't think like this.
