The Art Of Documentary Film Is Dead

Remember when you used to be able to watch good, cogent, intelligent documentaries on television or in an art movie theater? Those days are pretty much over. You can still find a decent documentary on TV if you look hard enough among the 500 channels, but the ones that get attention are nothing more than pure propaganda. Michael Moore was the driving force behind this along with Harvey Weinstein. Now Harvey is going to distribute a new documentary on "censorship victims" The Dixie Chicks.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The war of this century is not the war on terrorism, or even the culture war. The war of this century is the battle to control information.

UPDATE: Looks like Harvey is hedging his bets and bringing in some balance. The actions of a smart businessman. (Hat tip: Drudge)
