  1. damn it is getting scary

  2. It’s a very good overview of the election, btw. Well paced, comprehensive, no hyping, very informative. Enough of a peek under the covers to make it educational beyond the regular fare. 10/10. Now, don’t rate it low just b/c you don’t like the outcome of the election, or are really lost in the woods and believe the Cheney/Rumsfeld line that Al Jazeera is a terrorist network.

  3. Too many people miss the point of the rating system. It’s not asking if you like the subject or not, but rather what the quality of the doc is in terms of pace/interviews/camera work/interviews/etc.

  4. I don’t know why this is rated so low. Maybe too many people don’t agree that we’re still fucked even with Obama as president.
