Netflix has paid former President Obama an unknown sum to promote big government as the answer to social problems in its new show The G Word. According to journalist John Stossel, the show spins history and data to build a misleading case. Fortunately, says Stossel, the show is heavy-handed and unfunny so it’s probably not likely to convince many. Given that it’s basically a promo for big government, and that such a topic isn’t exactly in super-high demand, you have to wonder who backed The G Word and why.
If you want a good show explaining how big government works, one that’s actually funny, I recommend Love Gov. Here’s the trailer. The full playlist may be accessed on YouTube.
