"What's wrong with Ken Burns?"

Well, confining my comments to just his baseball documentary, how about his
assumption that 90% of what matters in baseball history took place in either
Boston or New York?

As to the politics of current documentarians, I tried to think of some
recent documentaries with a conservative political leaning and could think
of none. Is this because there aren't any, or because of a vast left-wing
conspiracy? (There might be other reasons I suppose...)

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
