With the increasingly discussed D’Souza documentary 2016 Obama’s America looming ever closer, I felt it might be a good time to look into the man, and motivation, behind the movie.
As a point of interest, always look for who benefits most from financing an enterprise. No surprises here.
The credibility of those who make and promote informative documentaries that seek to enlighten us should be considered when weighing the potenial bias therein. A word or two about Mr. D’Souza might be apropos here:
Reviews & critiques of Mr. D’Souza’s works:

Agree or disagree, become a fan or foe of the man, you must at least at least acknowledge the clear and evident bias here. This individual has made a not inconsiderable amount of money by casting aspersions upon the Democratic and Liberal ideals opposed and feared by Conservatives. As an additional point of interest, I note that most neutral or Democrat/Liberal slanted posts, reviews, and articles on this man are from 2010 and prior. From 2011 through 2012 the search engine results are predominately pro-Conservative. I am by no means a conspiracy proponent, but I do believe that an enormous amount of money and effort is being poured into ousting Obama and any Liberal or Democratic influence from our government. Those two things cannot be totally unrelated. At any rate, I believe folks should inform themselves about the source before deciding whether to believe the story.
* Before I get called on this, the percentage of financing accredited to Ricketts is around 5%. I maintain, however, that the point is not how much is put into an enterprise as much as how much benefit is received from any support at all.
