      Linda Barnard Toronto Star Shadows of Liberty asks consumers to look critically at what they are being told, and seek out what they are not. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 14, 2013 Full Review Chris Knight National Post None of these stories are new, but it helps to be reminded that news organizations (and the people who run them) are capable of errors of judgment, laziness or, as one interview subject puts it, "following the lead of silence."

      Audience Member Really good history on the deregulation and monopolization of media and how the government has taken advantage to control the narrative and keep citizenry less informed and in the dark on actual issues. Important viewing for anyone concerned with the state of modern media in the USA. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Documentary explains how the news is for sale. News outlets depend on corporate advertising, so reporters become unable to freely report things that can affect the news organizations bottom line. Also delves into the relationship of big news and government. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member A film that examines how we get to know what "the truth" is seems more important than ever, with news outlets shuttering and being bought up left and right - not to mention the rise of digital infotainment. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member News sources in America have been taking over by conglomerates. And that's why you don't see any news that are actually important. Please see this. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Exceptional, and extremely relevant. Everyone should see this, unless your happy being a mindless consumer - rather than an informed active citizen. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member A Brilliant documentary on the U.S. media outlets and public propaganda! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
