A not very accurate account of the 2016 campaign with blatant Democratic bias
The beginning of the movie when the focus was on the Republican primaries came across as relatively unbiased, but the coverage of the race after the conventions became completely unhinged. The blatant pro-Clinton bias of Halperin was bad enough but Heileman was absolutely insufferable.
Furthermore, most of the "news" clips were from CNN and MSNBC, two channels that don't practice responsible journalism. And like the MSM coverage during the campaign, little or no attention was paid to the many Clinton scandals or her poorly run campaign- just a brief mention of those leaked emails.
And the ending was pitiful - extensive coverage inside the Javits Center where Clinton was to have given a victory speech - the 3 "pundits" (especially Heileman) reacting with Snowflake-like disbelief at the outcome. I thought Heileman was going to start sobbing at any moment. Plus, attendees were filmed watching the developing election results on monitors tuned to the Clinton News Network. It's no wonder they were "stunned".
At the ending, we were supposed to feel sad and depressed (check out the melancholy ending theme music) about Trump's victory which is about what I expected from a channel like Showtime. It has some good moments, especially from early in the campaign, but after the conventions, the movie descends into blatant Democratic bias.
If you choose to watch this, you'll be thinking at the end, "Well, there's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back." Unless, of course, you are interested in learning more about how out of touch liberals are these days.
