Left Wing View of American History
28 April 2009 | by suedz1See all my reviews

Unfortunately, I had my school order this "crocumentary" and boy am I disappointed. As a high school history teacher I was really looking for an unbiased, factual view of the 20th Century, but what these anti-American video producers gave us is an unbelievably left-wing biased view at the past 100 years. Using David Axlerod as a source for information on Ronald Reagan is like asking a Jews to comment on Hitler's programs in Germany. All I can say is that Waleed and Malik Ali have a history of liberal thought and this video is no different. My student will never see it as long as I'm teaching. Again, I would not recommend this video to anyone who really wants to teach what really happened during the 20th Century without all the anti-American, liberal bias. Please do not waste your money or time on this video series. It is also very boring and focuses on events that really have no true need to be discussed at the lengths they are.
