Description Joseph Pulitzer spoke of "fake news" over 100 years ago and fought the dangers that the suppression of news had for a democracy long before our present threats to press freedom. His heroic battles have been forgotten along with the lessons we might learn from the tools he deployed against his enemies.

Based on the brilliant novel by K.W. Jeter, the documentary tells the story of how a young journalist and his newscaster father successfully tried to bring the middle-class newspaper into the modern world in New York City. The result was not a blockbuster success, but a break-through success. It paved the way for the newspaper to be called "New York Times" and launched a string of great stories by journalist/co-founder J. Paul Getty. The film does a fine job of keeping the viewer's interest, but it does come to a point where you are going to want to pause and catch your breath. As the film states, J. Paul Getty didn't want to be a journalist, he wanted to be a painter. The film leaves out the crucial moments of Getty's life, such as his involvement with the Italian painter Giuseppe Verdi. The fact that his father didn't care for him is the reason he decided to become a journalist. His father couldn't be bothered to be a father for him. What J. Paul saw in his father was in his great work of art, not his family life. The film did a fine job at depicting the time period when the Times was new and trying to break through in the 1930's. In a time when newspapers were losing subscribers, J. Paul Getty made the paper a success, and the world recognized him as a true, big-time newsman. But the documentary is too slow. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the part when the story is about the "magic of the new" that J. Paul really tried to bring about. It could have been a bit longer. Even though the documentary is a solid presentation, it could have been more informative. It was focused on a lot of the bigger personalities in the news business, and while that is true, the documentary could have been longer. In the end, the film is a good documentary that gives an overview of how the New York Times went from a community newspaper to the most powerful news outlet in the world. It is interesting to hear from J. Paul Getty, but it could have been more informative. It is worth watching, but it does come to a point where you want to pause and catch your breath.

The film begins with two fellow students at Harvard, a man and a woman. A New Yorker, one a member of the American Indian Movement (AIM), the other an editor for a feminist magazine, they met as students and formed an unusual friendship. "She's a real feminist, and I am," said the man, "she believes that men are equal to women." The young man had not known of AIM but was intrigued by the theory of women's equality. He had studied American History at Harvard, and although he was conservative he was curious about the issues that women fought for and the prejudice that had existed. "She's a feminist, and I am," he said. The woman, a fellow student of the Harvard Indian Studies program, said that she had been puzzled at first to learn that men and women were not equally oppressed, and had seen the world through a very narrow lens. But the film shows her to be quite different from the New York woman she had known. Her attitudes toward men and women were quite different, and she showed an interest in things that no one else had even heard of. She was particularly interested in the history of the period in which she grew up, the 1920's, and in the movement to end racism. She expressed pride in being American, proud of her heritage, and of the fact that her mother was one of the first immigrants. Her parents had been Indian, and when she asked them why they had kept their skin dark, she said, "We were a part of the culture, but they said we must keep it pure." The woman said that the only reason that her father, an Indian, could not marry her was because the family had no money, and that, she said, "I had the feeling that I had been married to someone that I had never met." She did not allow her mother to marry any other man, and she wanted her children to be treated as if they were born in this country. The woman said that, unlike many Indians, she was not violent, but that she had been in a few fights with her father, and that she had always walked away from them. "He's not like that, I think," said the woman, "he's more like an American." She was not a bad woman, she said, but she was not strong. She also showed concern for her children, especially her son, who she could not understand because he did not speak English. She went to the dentist when she was sick, but she did not take out her own teeth because she did not like the procedure. The man said that, although he had not known any Indians, he had been taught to respect Indians. The woman said that she would never have been able to drive without a license, and she had her driver's license because she had been accepted at Harvard. She also said that, although she was a liberal, she could not vote because the state, in her view, was racist, and the women's movement was part of a national campaign for racial equality. The woman, who was also a former member of the AIM, said that men and women had equal rights, and that the only things that were unequal were economic and political. She said that the second class citizens were a group of people who were

I have just seen the DVD of this documentary for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this film was entirely made by individuals, with no funding, and that the presentation and content were all the same. I had heard from several of the individuals who made this film that it was "based on a true story" and "taught people that this country is on a downward slope" - things I find "real" and "true". I have to say that I believe that "it was not a 'true story'". There were certain things about the reporting that did not meet the actual facts (eg. the "punching up" of a mother). This also is not a film for all; I don't believe that the people who are involved in making this documentary had the means to do it. The "main character" had little to no life experience before making this documentary; this is why the movie was not so realistic. I have a feeling that the people who made this documentary could have made a more believable documentary than this. I understand that the documentary is made by people who know the people who actually lived and died. I think the people who make documentaries for documentaries want to be recognized and respected for making the documentary. This is not a documentary for me, and I think that many of the people involved in making this film were trying to be realistic but it is not. I think that this documentary was at least in part a mistake, and I think it is not a documentary for the people who make documentaries.

The documentary, titled "Voices of the People," by veteran documentary filmmaker Errol Morris, is the second documentary from the Oscar-winning Director/Screenwriter/Producer, Peter Weir. The first one was the 2001 Oscar-winning documentary, "Blackfish," which also examined the impact of the effects of over-fishing on the ocean. This second documentary takes a look at a more comprehensive look at the more than a million whales killed by whalers each year. In this one, Morris focuses on the last three decades of the great whales' life. This film is not only informative, it's also emotional, touching and realistic. It takes us on a journey that is both informative and inspiring. The documentary goes deep into the lives of these whales as they deal with starvation, disease and a steady flow of human visitors, particularly those with whaling interests. The people who are caught in the conflict of interest between whale and man are illustrated in this documentary in a way that is both sad and relatable. The majority of the footage taken is whale footage of the whales in their natural habitat, but also includes more personal footage of whale advocates who have been caught in the middle. The documentary shows what whale advocacy is all about and it is a life experience that is both enlightening and emotional. We get a real sense of what it's like to live in the Arctic. While the majority of this film is about whales, it is also about a group of people who live on the sea in a state of crisis and disaster. The main issue is that the world's oceans are becoming more and more polluted and are becoming more and more unpredictable. In this documentary, we see the consequences of these changes for these people, who are forced to make do with what little they have to survive. We also see the work of one individual who is trying to change things and that is the man who has been living on a whale research ship for the past 30 years. We see a very powerful and heartfelt performance by the actor who portrays this man. The movie's theme is that if you take care of the whales, they will take care of you. This film is not just about the whales, it is about the people that these whales represent. They represent the world's oceans and they represent the world's oceans in a way that is both threatening and inspiring. The film is very engaging and it helps to change our perspective of what we would think if we had the knowledge and power that these whales have. This documentary is the type of documentary that we should be paying attention to because it will be the type of documentary that people will remember and cherish in the years to come. I highly recommend that you watch this documentary because it will definitely have an impact on you.
