Emmy Award-winning documentarian Dorothy Fadiman premiered her lastest film Sunday night in Palo Alto to a packed house. Stealing America: Vote by Vote combines interviews with voting volunteers, computer security experts, journalists, and exit poll researchers with media footage to weave a compelling tale of deliberate and criminal vote manipulation, suppression, and fraud.

Until the midterms on November 7th, the production company Concentric Media is offering DVD copies of the new film for a share-them-with-your-friends price of $5 (they take a loss on each one, but the hope they'll influence the chances of clean-election laws (prop 89 in CA, for instance) makes the sacrifice worthwhile.

This final version of the film that premiered tonight (I'd attended two "work in progress" screenings) is taut, powerful, and thoroughly researched. It is not particularly partisan (several interviewees are Republicans agreeing that the issue of a trustworthy vote process transcends party and strikes directly at the heart of democracy), though I can't claim the same for the crowd that turned up in Palo Alto - applause broke out several times when someone on screen made a point about badly we were all served by the media collapse on the issue of the Ohio vote irregularities at the time.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
