You want me to pay for propaganda? I thought that's what they were against. :)

It's Orwellian: according to Ronnie, *exposing* indoctrination now counts as propaganda. Double-plus-ungood!

An unbiased look at speech codes and freedom of speech on college campuses would greatly benefit people. After having read reviews of this film however, it seems as though it's as factual as Fahrenheit 9/11 or Bowling for Columbine. If the movie contained more than selected facts, it would be more than propaganda. But my biggest complaint was that I'm going to have to pay to watch the propaganda, since I watched the trailer and would be perfectly happy to spend the time watching the whole movie even if it is relatively biased. I'm not complaining about exposing indoctrination, I'm complaining about making biased documentary films and then selling them for a profit.

When it first became available I downloaded the 45-minute "condensed" version. I don't view it as like the movies you mentioned for a few reasons:

1) pertinent facts are not left out of the stories,
2) most of the humor comes from school administrators and students who just speak their mind, thereby showing Maloney's point, and
3) there's no intent to mislead here.
