Robert Greenwald and the hard working folks at Brave New Films have become my new heroes.
I had just finished writing a review of their 2006 film "Iraq For Sale: The War Profiteers" when I saw that one of their video clips had made it to the viral video chart.
This is something they threw together illustrating exactly how Fox News is attacking Barak Obama's campaign.
Smear tactics are nothing new to politics, especially when it comes to the run for the oval office. But its really interesting to see just how far and just how subtle a "fair and balanced" network such as Fox goes to discredit whomever they dont like:
Robert Greenwald and Brave New Films have been producing films on their own, outside the realm of corporate finances for a while now. They are also not strangers to the atrocities of corporations like Fox. Some of their other films include "Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism" an d"Wal-Mart: the High Cost of Low Prices."
In fact, other than their penchant for over-using the colon, I would say that they are one of the few unsung champions for people to wake up and pay attention to the world that is unfolding around them.
