Lies, Damned Lies, and "Fact Checking:" Exposing The Media's Latest Attempt To Smuggle Liberal Ideological Doctrine In The Guise of "Facts" | Main | Obama's Preacher's Sermon: It's Our Fault For Expecting So Much

Currently Streaming on Netflix: "Waiting For Superman" and "The Cartel" and "The Lottery"

Three great documentaries. Waiting For Superman is done by a liberal, so you get the added Even Liberals Are Saying It authority of a liberal decimating the Teachers Unions.

The Cartel is also good, but it lacks the emotional narrative arc of Waiting For Superman.

Waiting For Superman dramatizes its point -- that teachers unions are keeping students in failing schools, to doom them for life, just in order to keep their monopolies and their union benefits -- by following eight or so young kids whose only chance for success is winning the school-choice lottery. As an attempt to placate the public, the teachers unions will allow something like 10% of students to escape their horrific schools via the lottery system -- but they will keep the other 90% in prison.

Here's the thing: Of the eight kids you follow throughout the film, only a few make it out. Because that's the way the Teachers Unions want it to be.

The Lottery is the same idea, following kids through this process.

It's terrible, and this only happens because the teachers union wants to keep its horrific teachers in their horrific schools, and because the Democratic Party needs the teachers unions donations and manpower.

I've mentioned these documentaries before, but now they're all streaming. Just a click away if you have Netflix.

If you think you're outraged, but haven't watched these yet -- you're not really fully outraged.

Free on Hulu, Too: The Lottery and The Cartel are also absolutely free on Hulu (though I think there are advertisements at various points).

Weft-cut loop points that out.
