How far can Right-wing media go to brainwash elderly Americans? Filmmaker Jen Senko looks at the rise of Right-wing media through the lens of her WWII vet father who changed from a life-long, moderate Kennedy Democrat to an angry, right-wing fanatic after his discovery of talk radio. In trying to understand how this happened, Senko spoke with media luminaries and grassroots activists such as Noam Chomsky, Jeff Cohen, Claire Conner and Carol Wallin from STOPRUSH, who unravel a strategy to shift the country to the Right through media manipulation. The result has led to fewer voices, less diversity of opinion, and massive intentional misinformation. The film shines a light on how it happened (and is still happening).
