There is a documentary on SBS tonight, called Dreams of Obama. The television listings describe it thus -
This documentary examines the rich personal and political biography of the 44th president of the United States. Through interviews with insiders and observers who’ve tracked Obama from his days at Harvard Law School, through his rise in Chicago politics, to his emergence onto the national scene after the 2004 Democratic National Convention, it chronicles Obama’s meteoric rise, going beyond the headlines to reveal how he won one of the most memorable, and important, presidential elections of our time.
And that brief hagiography people, is what passes for objective and professional journalism these days.
