I only watched about fifteen minutes of it. The first ten minutes is kind of garbled, but then it starts getting important and i will probably want to watch all of it sometime,
Essentially it is about how the important "news" is, in fact, a series of ads put together by public relations agencies for powerful corporate clients. The "news" is, therefore, "spun," and although not all news is bought by corporations, it is hard to tell what is and what isn't. For those worried about the "liberal" media, i suspect the interests of nearly of these news "sponsors" is conservative or reactionary.

i suspected it was lib/progressive. however, i read that it too much, "blames the constitution," which i find hard to believe, of course.

thank you. even if i set up my other computer to go online and view videos, i still couldn't view them cuz i'm on dial-up. unless i spent time on downloading i guess.

apparently Newsweek is folding as a paper mag, and it is currently filled with all sorts of ads from big pharm, big med, big everything - (all money-grubbing propaganda). much like the tv networks.

Yeah, the last Newsweek i picked up (in a Physician's waiting room) was very thin and consisted mainly of ads.
