one man records over 500 hours of satellite news feeds and finds and interesting conflicting juxtaposition between what actually occurs and what is broadcast.
much of his archive is taken from the late 80's.
this is why independent media is so vital to a free society because as this documentary shows:
they have been using broadcast media to their advantage for a very..very..long time.

Great sift.
However your summary is incorrect: this is the documentary Spin, released in 1995 and covering the influence of the media during the 1992 presidential election, and how those who understood the media's mentality and technology got to win (namely Bill Clinton, who won the election, and Pat Robertson, whose faction took over the Republican Party). So maybe adding "Spin" as a tag is in order.

The segment about Larry Agran, I am told by Wikipedia, has become a kind of textbook example of how a candidate can be brought down by a media blackout (he was one of the top four Democratic candidates, yet was disturbingly ignored by the media, and was excluded from all TV debates).
