Examples Section

Is it possible for us to include any conservative examples? I realize that it's hard to find anything other than liberal garbage, but we should probably attempt to put up some pretense of objectivity in our articles. WMreaganfan 20:26, 19 December 2007 (EST)


I'm disappointed that Supersize Me was included on the list, and would like to know what specific aspects of the documentary contained "junk science".

For that matter, this article would have a lot more credibility if specific examples of the sue of "junk science" were provided, along with supporting citations, for each of the documentaries in the list. As it reads right now, this more closely resembles name-calling than an academic-quality categorizing of these documentaries under the definition provided. Articles like these have to be improved and objectively supported if Conservapedia is going to have any credibility. Comment added by User:DinsdaleP

Agreeing with the anon above me. I'd also like to know how "junk science" even applies to Outfoxed. Barikada 15:52, 24 January 2008 (EST)

Super Size Me is, in my opinion, bad science because it portrays a ridiculous scenario. I know McDonalds food is unhealthy, but who actually eats every meal there? Virtually no-one. The author also went from plenty of exercise to not much. That's bound to cause a massive shock to the system in itself. He wasn't just eating bad food; he was eating far too much and any half-sensible person could be a lot less unhealthy by eating a lot less food (primarily buying it from McDonalds).Barclay 16:14, 24 January 2008 (EST)

Everything he did was based on the American average. Barikada 20:03, 29 January 2008 (EST)

The average American doesn't eat every meal at McDonalds.Barclay 19:50, 9 February 2008 (EST)

Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers

I saw this film; would someone please explain to me why it's considered a "Schlokumertary"? It isn't anti-war or even against the Republicans. The content of the film is that many of the Corporations that the government contracted are overcharging and cheating the government while they aren't even doing their freakin' job!!!. Why then is it categorized as a Scholckumentary?! ---user:DLerner--- 19:24, 5 August 2008 (EDT)

Well, I added it because it's just like half the films on the list. I got my copy free for hosting a MoveOn telephone party thing back in 2006. About ten of us wild-eyed liberals watched it. Sherrod Brown also won ;) (we were calling Ohioans on his behalf). I'm not going to fight to keep it in, I don't care, really. The whole article is silly, but I thought I was "improving" it, on its terms at least. Thanks for starting this talk section before I even got here to say my piece! Human 23:13, 6 August 2008 (EDT)

Liberal Schlockumentaries?

I know we're "Conserva"pedia, but liberal attempts to add movies like Ben Stein's Expelled are always reversed. I set up an "Examples Used By The Left" section for them to voice their opinions. Let me know what you think of this/whether it should be reversed. -danq 17:43, 19 October 2009 (EDT)
