    I'm not sure what a far leftist Hollywood producer is doing writing History Channel documentaries. By the over the top anti-American skew of this series, History Channel might as well have hired Michael Moore. Time and time again, we are treated to highly one sided stories which paint the U.S. in the worst possible light. This series, while sometimes interesting, is not history. It is propaganda. I wonder if History Channel would be OK with a similar series by the likes of Rush Limbaugh? Full Review »

    Knowing Stone's interest in illuminating some dark shadows in our past I eagerly wait future episodes. Must admit I thought there would be more skeletons revealed in the first show but I was intrigued throughout. Full Review »

    Ignoring the first episode (which contained absolutely nothing untold and held no surprises at all for any semi-educated person), the series has proven to be slightly confusing. While at times it seems that it is nothing but elaborately phrased and painfully obvious extreme leftist propaganda, this is led ad absurdum when Stone attacks monuments of left wing politics with no other intend but to make himself appear more credible, more critical and more analytical. It is painful to watch because it uses the most brutish, most obvious and most unworthy rhetorical methods possible. It is a disgrace for any side in the political spectrum, it is mostly uninformative and it leaves the bitter aftertaste of stuporous misinformation and conspiracy nutjob babbling. At least it DOES give some insight into the thoughts of confused leftist conspiracy nutjobs and history revisionists. Full Review »
