Vast Right Wing Media Conspiracy Revealed!
In the midst of the 1998 Clinton Impeachment, grassroots groups of citizens from across the country staged a protest against Ken Starr in Washington DC. One of those groups was the Truth in America Project; headed by journalist Sue Wilson, it focused on the vast right wing media conspiracy against President Clinton.
Years later, Wilson continues to expose right wing bias in the media with her new film, Public Interest Pictures' Broadcast Blues. She uses a series of vignettes to show how media policy changes stemming from the Reagan era have corrupted our news, information, and even public safety. In a searing interview with former Right Wing "hit man" David Brock, she reveals the Conservative media's calculated misinformation campaign to bring down President Clinton, and shows its impact on politics and news today (including the recent Fox News' court ruling that news does not have to be true.)
Broadcast Blues is playing 5:30 PM October 22 at the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival.
Information about the film is available online at www.broadcastblues.tv and information about the film festival is at http://www.hsdff.org/home .
