Let’s just say up front that Chicken Fried News has a soft spot for Mike McCarville, the longtime Oklahoma journalist and Republican politico who runs the website The McCarville Report Online, or TMRO if you’re an acronym-thusiast.

Stories We Tell

Family matters.


Documentary

Rod Lott
Stories We Tell is not only one of the year's best documentaries, but one of the format's more unique exercises of our time. You may have seen a story of this type before — just not told in this imaginative a fashion. I was reminded of the rush I felt encountering Errol Morris' The Thin Blue Line or Michael Moore's Roger & Me in the late 1980s, and thinking, "Wow, a documentary can be like this, too?"

The MAPS 3 ballot centered on a sales tax extension that would finance eight separate projects.
