Orwell Rolls in His Grave (2003)

Posted on February 11, 2017  in Entertainment, Videos

 

The film covered topics including the Telecommunications Act of 1996, concentration of media ownership, political corruption, Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the controversy over the US presidential election of 2000 (particularly in Florida with Bush v. Gore), and the Carter vs. Reagan 1980 “October Surprise” conspiracy theory.

 

 

 

A great documentary analyzing the role of the modern American media and its effects on democracy.

Counting Ryan Thomas twice, Askren’s opposition had a combined record of 200-48-5-1 going into their fights with him.

The look in Koreshkov’s eyes after the takedown in the second round in Askren-Koreshkov fight made me Askren fan.

Before the fight started they mentioned that Koreshkov did not bring wrestlers into the training camp. When Koreshkov had been completely dominated in the first round and Askren started the same wrestle-fuck in the second, you could see how light went out from Koreshkov’s eyes. He didn’t stop trying or give up, but you could see how his spirit was broken from the non-stop catch-and-release wrestling.
