Fox vs. Franken: In an absurd convergence of circumstances, Fox News filed a lawsuit against liberal imp Al Franken (they objected to his parody of their slogan "fair and balanced") in order to coddle star pundit Bill O'Reilly.

Abstract:

Fox vs. Franken: In an absurd convergence of circumstances, Fox News filed a lawsuit against liberal imp Al Franken (they objected to his parody of their slogan "fair and balanced") in order to coddle star pundit Bill O'Reilly. The real joke is how badly Fox's efforts to muscle Franken backfired, putting them in the middle of a story so crazy, it reads like something Franken could have invented for one of his own books.

Poetic license: Explores the uproar surrounding controversial poet Amiri Baraka, and the furor over Baraka's post-9/11 poem, "Somebody Blew Up America," in which the poet draws a difficult comparison between the terrorist attack and long-simmering internal problems in America that have been elided in our outrage toward foreign enemies. Marxist Baraka has long been known for his confrontational writing designed to challenge the white establishment, particularly during the "black power" heyday of the '60s.

Some assembly required: This film examines the protests during the 2004 Republican National Convention focusing on the disconnect between society's desire for order and the NYPD's overzealous application of force in stamping out potential threats to the placid image of the GOP's "big tent." Mainstream media downplayed the protests to the point of near-invisibility during the convention, so this portrait of articulate protesters serves as a corrective.
