The 2008 Presidential election was historic in many ways. For the first time, the vast majority of mainstream media decided to openly back one candidate. Media Malpractice tells the entirestory of this precedent-setting and dangerous media reality. In just four years, Barack Obama went from being a little known State Senator to being elected President of the United States. This film explores the role of the media in facilitating the victory that shocked the world. While the media did everything they could to elevate Obama, they took a very different view of Sarah Palin. With an interview of Palin done exclusively for this film, Media Malpractice examines the real story behind many of the media created perceptions used in an attempt to destroy her credibility.
