Independent Intervention is an eye-opening documentary calling for accountability from mainstream media and the need for an independent news source in America. Tonje Hessen Schei is a Portland-based, Norwegian director. Schei contrasts the coverage of the Iraq War by mainstream and independent media sources, the film considers the disparity between corporate controlled news coverage and independent news coverage. In America 5.5 corporations own 80% of the media, Viacom and Time Warner are two of the corporations. These corporate media conglomerates control media outlets, keeping the news uniform, and the same experts repeat the same views. With interviews focusing on the human cost of war, from Democracy Now's Amy Goodman, MIT professor and critic of the military-industrial complex, Noam Chomsky, filmmaker Michael Moore, journalist Bill Moyers, US Senators and Iraqi people, the film shows how media is managed and dispersed to the American people. Shei's narration guides viewers through the film, images used show the human cost of war, and are graphic.moreless
