Surely, Ralph Nader deserves better press than he's been getting ever since the 2004 elections--and the legendary consumer advocate and so-called presidential spoiler receives his due, from both sides, in the documentary "An Unreasonable Man."
After all, this is the man who, since he first vaulted to fame in 1965, helped bring us dozens of the most beneficial consumer protection acts and organizations, including the National Automobile and Highway Traffic Safety Act, the Clean Water and Clean Air Acts, the Consumer Product Safety Act, the Whistleblower Protection Act, the Freedom of Information Act, the Environmental Protection Agency and many more. By any reasonable standard, he has accomplished more good for more people in those four decades than almost any public figure you could name--and done it without notably enriching himself or improving his shaggy-college-professor wardrobe.
