A good documentary series that points out many big, important issues, however, the show is lazy in terms of fact-checking, manipulatively edited(much like the things the host criticises, talk about hypocrisy!) and the interviews are bad journalism, to say the least. Watch it, take it in, but be careful and take some of the statements and situations with a grain of salt. Jacques Peretti is a bit like a less extreme version of Michael Moore - he picks important issues and drives home correct points, but his means of doing it are sometimes shady.
