Joseph Pulitzer spoke of "fake news" over 100 years ago and fought the dangers that the suppression of news had for a democracy long before our present threats to press freedom. His heroic battles have been forgotten along with the lessons we might learn from the tools he deployed against his enemies.

This is the documentary that brought Stephen Hawking to the world's attention. He's had a great life. He's a great guy and a great scientist. He was the first to use the term "spacetimescale", and this is a wonderful documentary about his life and the times he lived in. It's hard to say anything negative about him, as this is a great story. And it's good to see that he was able to survive cancer and to have a normal life. The docu is based on the book, "Stephen Hawking: A Brief Life" by Stephen Hawking. It's really good. This is a great documentary.

This is a compelling documentary, though not without its flaws. The film is well shot and the best moments come from the interviews with the people involved. However, the editing is extremely choppy, as is the overall quality of the film. There are many loose ends that don't tie up very neatly, and it's very easy to get lost in the conversation. There is no way to know what really happened to the Pulitzer Prize winners, and the filmmakers never really tell us what really happened to the people who were involved with the Pulitzer Prize. The people interviewed aren't always clear about who they were and how they became involved with the Pulitzer Prize, and they can't really be sure what they heard was true. It's impossible to tell what exactly happened. This is not a documentary about the Pulitzer Prize, but about the people who were involved in it. I think that the film should have been more tightly edited, but it's still a good documentary.

The documentary takes a look at the life of the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who won the Pulitzer Prize for journalism in 1973, and the lives of the people who knew her, her family, and her colleagues. It's a fascinating look at the whole thing from the award ceremonies up to her death. It's a very interesting look into the way people at the time would react to the news of the award, and how they all knew about the Pulitzer Prize, and her life. It also looks at the importance of journalism in the 20's and the 50's, and how important it was. It's very interesting and you learn a lot about the people who knew Pulitzer and her life.

The movie does a good job of highlighting the problems of the state of Louisiana, the difficulties of the film being shot in the Louisiana State Penitentiary and the racial tensions that exist in the state. It also looks at the history of the newspaper, the LA Times, and the other newspapers of the time. The movie is very interesting and worth seeing.

I would have given this a 10, but the film did not give the viewer enough information to be able to form an opinion about what was really going on. As a student of journalism, I was very interested in the facts of the case. I am not sure that the film made this point clear enough. The documentary is only worth watching if you have already watched the trial. If you haven't, this is probably not the documentary for you.

This documentary by Alex Gibney (no relation to Alex Gibney) is the tale of a man who rose to become the leader of a newspaper in the 1930s in New York. Pulitzer, a New Yorker who had a brief but brilliant career as a writer, editor and publisher, became the face of the New York Times, and went on to become a founding member of the World Zionist Organization. He is interviewed by himself, with an on-camera interviewer, and by a reporter who is covering his life. The documentary's title, "Voice of the People" refers to the newspaper's early and energetic adoption of the World Zionist slogan, "We shall not be moved by obstacles or obstacles by obstacles" (which, as noted, was a slogan used by the Nazis). It's also a reference to the newspaper's famous "Last Word" column, which took Pulitzer to the pinnacle of his career. But there are many other aspects of this documentary, all of which are worthwhile. One is that it features interviews with Pulitzer's wife, Sondra, and with Pulitzer's daughter, who was Pulitzer's daughter in law. Also, some clips from his speeches and other writings are included, and his editorials are also discussed. The film also features a documentary about the paper's president, William Randolph Hearst, who died in 1960. And, the documentary also features clips from Pulitzer's memoirs, which are also included. One of the more important parts of the film, however, is the archive footage of Pulitzer's life, which is also included. And this includes the documentary footage of his wife, Sondra, talking about the two of them together, and their wedding. And it also includes the interview with Pulitzer's daughter, who was a journalist at the time, and later became a reporter herself. There's also an interesting conversation between Pulitzer and his wife, where they talk about the newspapers, about life and the paper, and how their friendship was built. And there's also a conversation with Pulitzer's daughter, which is especially interesting because it's not about her, but about the daughter of Pulitzer's brother. And, at the end of the documentary, there's an interview with Pulitzer's son, who was born in 1927, and who is interviewed by Pulitzer. And he's not interviewed by himself, but by Pulitzer himself. And it's also interesting to see the different people that the Pulitzer family knew and liked, including the editor who hired Pulitzer, the publisher who encouraged Pulitzer to become a writer, and Pulitzer's wife, who became Pulitzer's secretary and helped him write the last "Last Word". The best parts of the documentary, however, are the interviews with Pulitzer's son, and the archive footage. The archive footage is particularly interesting because it's the only footage that has been used to tell the story of Pulitzer, and it's very interesting to hear how Pulitzer's son discusses his father. And, the archive footage of Pulitzer's early years is also very interesting, as it includes interviews with some of the other people who worked with Pulitzer, including his publisher, the editor and the reporters who covered Pulitzer. And it also includes the archive footage of his first major book, which is also very interesting. This is a very good documentary, which I found very informative. I liked it, and I recommend it. 7/10
