Bad article -- heavy promotion[edit]

This article is terrible. Much of the content is straight out of some PR flack's press kit. I'd work on it, but I can't quite bring my committment to neutral point of view to bear here. Besides, I'd like to see lefties try to make this article neutral for a change. But in my observation, most of them who come to wikipedia can't resist their activist impulse. Such is the hold their beliefs have on their minds. Alcarillo 23:39, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Struck out rude comment. WP:NPA María (habla conmigo) 12:45, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
Still, months later and it's only been cosmetically edited. Granted, the heavy promo has been removed, but the quality was bad. So I started creating a proper biography page, and I highly, highly suggest editors learn how to make a proper bio page here: WP:NAMES instead of using this article to focus on Greenwald's political agenda.

POV deletion of articles by User:Bfigura[edit]

User:Bfigura has moved to delete The REAL Rudy on Robert Greenwald's viral video immediately upon its posting. The move to delete the article was made with no justification on my talk page or on the talk page of the article.

The {} web site is politically significant. There are hundreds of google accessible hits as the result of the google search for it. The move to delete the article is probably politically motivated, as it is inconsistent with the survival of other viral videos. Note that there is existing commercially motivated material, such as the Ron Paul Dollar, promoted on the wikipedia page for Liberty Dollar. Yet, this has not been deleted.

I'm not sure I agree with your argument there, the liberty dollar is notable because of the raid on their premises by (IIRC) law enforcement as being a counterfeit currency or something Hulahulahulahula (talk) 22:46, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Examples of other viral videos that have not been deleted[edit]

The above are examples of viral video article that have not been deleted. Dogru144 23:22, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Further inconsistencies: specific viral video articles[edit]

I noted that that there are over 20 viral videos listed on the viral videos article, including a porn-sharing site. Yet, curiously, only The REAL Rudy was flagged for speedy deletion. Dogru144 03:43, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

This guy is a pretty good docugandist for his political views, shouldn't more be made of that nature of his films, while I don't necessarily disagree with much he does, his films are clearly not neutral in any manner. Describing them as issue based I think clouds the matter, they seem more like well done targeted attack films. Hulahulahulahula (talk) 22:44, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

The filmography should merely be a list, not a list plus a set of PR puffery quotes praising the works. Unless anyone can tell me how such comments can be justified as part of a filmography, I will delete them. Theonemacduff (talk) 07:38, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Non-neutral POV regarding Money Bail System[edit]

The article currently states, "The studio is currently working with a coalition in California to end the unjust money bail system with films like Debunking Bail Myths." This is not a neutral point of view. Who judged that the money bail system is unjust? That is an opinion until such time as it is demonstrated by a neutral authority on the subject. I will edit the sentence. Pooua (talk) 21:42, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
