The massive success of our film, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy — which was first released two months BEFORE the 2016 election and predicted Trump would win (and how!) — has led to demands from NAACP, ACLU, Transformative Justice Coalition for an update.

And even that 1 in 300, say the profs from Stanford, Harvard, Penn, Yale and Microsoft, is probably just clerical error. …more
