Filmmaker Brian Knappenberger investigates the tragic death of an 8-year-old California boy who endured horrific abuse by his mother and her boyfriend, along with the fractured and complex systems that failed to protect him.
While most episodes were insightful and truthful, some episodes were very biased and withholding of vital information to truly be transparently informative. In particular, the episode depicting the perils of campaign finance reform, the information they projected about Bernie Sanders was heavily biased, incomplete, and factually inaccurate. At the same time, they spent no time (actually no screen time) on the shadiness of the other candidates. If it had not been for this oversight (or intentional slight) the show would have hit it out of the park.
