There is little doubt that the press possesses its own biases, but when it influences the course of American society — as it has so often in recent years — it becomes an insidious cancer that must be removed. A new documentary by independent filmmaker Jeff Hall examines how many journalists and news organizations have inserted their bias into the stories they report, as well as how that bias has significantly changed the outcome of recent elections and political conflicts. “Journalistic Malpractice: How the Media Manipulates the American Public and Why” is a hard-hitting look at the hidden methods news outlets use to guide public opinion, and it will leave viewers shocked and disgusted.
Many Americans believe that the press is truly an objective field, but the truth is that even the “unbiased” news organizations often pick and choose the stories they wish to report, adding a favorable light to figures they support and subtly denigrating those they oppose. Jeff Hall intends to use his contacts within the media establishment to conduct interviews which reveal the true nature of journalism in America today.
“Journalistic Malpractice: How the Media Manipulates the American Public and Why” is a powerful and important project that could dramatically influence how issues are discussed in the public forum, but it is still in its incipient stages. Jeff and his team require $10,000 to travel and interview his sources. To raise these funds, he has sponsored a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo. In return for supporting this project, backers may receive perks like online access to the film, DVDs, T-shirts, caps, or invitations to the film premiere.
