cpac 2007: the unauthorized documentary

the nation's max blumenthal takes a camera into the heart of the conservative political action conference and asks some interesting questions. what comes about is quite a revealing look at how some conservatives feel towards liberals, as well as how some conservatives feel towards some of their own policies and ideals. this is pretty much mud slinging at its finest, and it is quite humorous.

while humorous, this type of journalism is pretty confrontational, but i understand is a tactic that sometimes has to be employed in order to try to get some honest reactions out of people, rather than political talking points. it pushes buttons, but then, sometimes you just have to do that in order to get a bit of honesty and personality. and it's good for a laugh.
