Minority Report: Inside Election 2004

Did anyone see the documentary Minority Report: Inside Election 2004 last night? It would make even made Michael Moore cry just for its sheer liberal propaganda type of direction! It was aired on CBC NewsWorld last night at 8 MST.

Basically the documentary gave the impression of how the 'underdog' Liberals fought back the big bad Tories to win the election at the last minute. The whole thing was pretty much an interview with Liberal strategist Scott Reid and an NDP communication director. This documentary was so one-sided it seemed like it was directed by Michael Moore. Throughout the film, if Stephen Harper wasn't being criticized by Reid, he was also being lambasted by journalists featured in the film.

I was watching this documentary with someone who in the past has voted Liberal and even she said that it was ridiculously one sided. To me this was a propaganda film of epic proportions. Bringing back all of those ‘scary’ allegations so close to the next election has only one goal: to remind the Ontario voters why they didn't vote the Tories into power. They even played the footage of that one ex Tory MP who was talking about the not withstanding clause; Even though the Tories have stated at their convention that this is not an option.

The documentary focused on the gaffes of the Conservative party but it did not once mention about the Liberals and its scandals. Near the end (the climax) when the Liberals won, the documentary seemed to paint the victory as an epic battle to keep the radical, Canada destroying Conservatives at bay. I mean I couldn't believe it. At the end, all the Liberals were joyful in that they seemed think they were Gandalf and Frodo beating the Saruman and retaining the Ring. It was so pitiful, in the end, Scott Reid was crying, yes, actually crying in his interview because of the joy he had at not allowing these crazy Tories in having power.

I guess, once again, it’s just another example of how CBC provides 'balanced' journalism to our Country.

The CBC are worried about their job IMO since many CPC members would rather shut them down than continue to fund state run television.

I hope that isn't a rumor. The CBC is the paradigm of leftist bias in the media.

I tuned into this right near the end. Just what I saw made me want to kick the tele. The part at the end when they put white print on the black background in total silence -- that's what they do at the end of tragic movies or documentaries when you want to know what happened to the players after the film ends. It's an artistic thing meant to express profound information.
The CBC takes itself and its role in Canada far too seriously. It is the hockey station. Until hockey is back, it's not worth watching.

This program is actually a repeat broadcast.

The same "documentary" was shown on CBC about one month ago. Extensive excerpts were also shown on the CBC "news" program "Sunday".

You can expect to see it repeated several times once the next phase of the election campaign begins.
