Using the US presidential election of 1992 and the LA riots as a backdrop, filmmaker Brian Springer stitches together pirated satellite feeds to provide a glimpse behind the veil of the politico-media complex.

    I thought that due to the upcoming campaign cycle, this was a good time to call attention to this documentary.

    In my opinion, this film could only be made during it's specific time in history. Unencrypted satellite feeds provide a candid view into an industry that is built on careful posturing.

    In it, we see the beginnings of the religious right, the stifling of any contrary voice, and the bipartisanship of manipulation.

    Very apropos for the upcoming election cycle. Imagine how much better they are now.
