video review: racism series 3

While not dealing with racism per se, this film deals more with propaganda, smearing, and discrimination. One of the themes in this film is discrimination according to political beliefs, anti-communism specifically. The original film distorted to fit the right wing story was made by the Mutual networks's fierce right-wing commentator Fulton Lewis, Jr.

This film is a good lesson to remember when you watch the television news. I current debate as 2010 approaches is the slant the CTV network has towards the olympics. Since they are broadcasting the events in 2010 (and will sell and profit from the ad spots). They have been accused of self-censoring any criticisms of the games. see a link to this debate on Babble forum.
