      “The answer is tough investigations of what happened in the voting and the vote counting, uncompromised by the false notion that avoidance of controversy will be healing.  The answer is also tough reporting on what happened in Florida that does not confuse fairness with the unsatisfactory practice of quoting one strident voice and then its opposite in every story.” Alex Jones of Harvard University’s Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy in the New York Times

                         A NEW CUTTING-EDGE FILM FROM GLOBALVISION ON

      THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE 2000 ELECTORAL FIASCO IN FLORIDA:

      COUNTING ON DEMOCRACY

      Narrated by OSSIE DAVIS AND RUBY DEE

      Produced and Directed by Danny Schechter

       “This tale of race, political payback, voter fraud and justice deferred could have come out of a Hollywood thriller. But no—this is the story of the 2000 Presidential election in Florida, one of the most startling, disturbing events in recent years. Directed by investigative reporter Danny Schechter [executive editor of MediaChannel.org, and executive producer of Globalvision], Counting on Democracy is a jaw-dropping, even terrifying account of just how shallow our nation’s commitment to democracy can be” Taos Film Festival

      175,000 votes went uncounted in Florida during the 2000 Presidential Election. Only 537 votes separated the contenders when the United States Supreme Court gave the presidency to George W. Bush? What happened to all the votes? What was behind the fiasco in Florida?  Was it a coup, a conspiracy or a “tyranny of small decisions?” Were black voters disenfranchised and other minorities discriminated against? COUNTING ON DEMOCRACY tells the full story the mainstream media wouldn’t.

      This non-partisan hour-long investigative film penetrates the electoral swamp in Florida with interviews and new information about how the right to vote was undermined, and the recount sabotaged. Globalvision speaks with voters, activists, and partisans on all sides to make sense of the disruption of democracy and a massive denial of the right to vote. This eye opening film goes deeper than the networks in upholding the right to vote. AVAILABLE NOW FOR SCREENINGS NATIONWIDE.
