Somewhat interesting but incredibly biased.
17 September 2018 | by outpixSee all my reviews

It's one thing to make your political beliefs known. It's quite another to misrepresent the facts. Somehow this show has been able to get conservatives to agree to being interviewed and then edited to shreds on the cutting room floor in order to make the case for the liberal side.
