On September 11, 2013, bikers from across the country rode into the nation’s capital to honor those who died on 9/11 and to protest the callous Million Muslim March planned for the same day. The sight of tens of thousands of bikers rolling through D.C., with American flags waving in tow, was enough to fill even the most jaded Washingtonian with an overwhelming sense of patriotism. And the sound? Well that would get anyone’s attention, right? Everyone except the mainstream media’s, apparently.
Time and again, this is what grassroots filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynchobserved when traveling the nation for his first two films about immigration. Whether it was about jobs and unemployment or border security and amnesty, what Lynch was finding in the field wasn’t matching what the mainstream media were reporting. And when it came to covering grassroots protests with thousands of people in attendance, they were nowhere to be found.
Lynch’s latest film “We Ride to DC” gets to the bottom of this, taking a hard look at how the media has distorted or omitted reporting on Benghazi, abortion, jobs and the economy, illegal immigration, the IRS scandal, elections, the government shutdown, and more.
Liberal media bias is a crucially important issue everyone should be concerned with. Why? Because as the Media Research Center’s Brent Bozell points out in the film, “How can you have a functioning democracy when the voters don’t have access to truth?”
