Summary
  • A compilation of three short films about the current state of freedom of speech and freedom of assembly in the United States
  • Fox vs. Franken: when comedian Al Franken used Fox News' phrase "Fair and balanced" in his satiric book, the network sued. Fox lost in court and Franken earned national notoriety with a bestseller
  • Poetic license: explores the implications of state-sponsored art through the story of New Jersey Poet Laureate Amiri Baraka and the outrage that erupted after a perfomance of his controversial poem, "Somebody blew up America, " which is about the September 11 terrorist attacks
  • Some assembly required: documents protestors at the 2004 Republican National Convention and examines the public's right to protest versus the need for public security
