Alpha News documentary continues to receive media coverage nationwide

The documentary has been viewed more than 4 million times.

Alpha News’ documentary “The Fall of Minneapolis” has continued to receive media coverage nationwide following its release on Nov. 16.

“The Supreme Court Should Watch ‘The Fall of Minneapolis,'” Roger Simon, an award-winning novelist, Oscar-nominated screenwriter, and columnist for The Epoch Times wrote in a review of the film.

“I just viewed the recently released ‘The Fall of Minneapolis’ documentary and came away with little doubt that Derek Chauvin was innocent,” Simon said.

“The Fall of Minneapolis” has been available to stream for free for nearly three weeks and has reached over 4 million viewers between Rumble, YouTube, and X (formerly Twitter).

Despite the high viewership, most local Minnesota media outlets haven’t covered the documentary, which includes the first public interview with former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who was stabbed in prison nine days after the film came out.

The documentary has also been featured on several national shows, including Greg Gutfeld and The Dennis Prager Show.

One of the guests on Gutfeld’s panel discussing “The Fall of Minneapolis,” George “Tyrus” Murdoch, a Fox News contributor, posted on X that his mind was changed after he watched the documentary. He initially explained during the segment that he hadn’t watched the film, but promised to do so with an open mind.

“Two men of color and two white men were thrown to the wolves,” he wrote, announcing that he’d watched the entire documentary “from start to finish.”

Dennis Prager also had high praise for the documentary on the Nov. 27 episode of his show where he interviewed Alpha News reporter and producer Liz Collin. “You owe it to yourself and to your country to watch this documentary,” Prager said.

The Epoch Times wrote a review of the documentary, saying that it challenges the “official narrative of George Floyd’s death.”

Other interviews regarding the film include the Megyn Kelly Show, Jesse Watters, Jason Whitlock, Jesse Kelly, Greg Kelly, and more.

The Alpha News documentary has been successful despite facing some censorship from Facebook ahead of its release. YouTube also turned off the ability for viewers to comment on “The Fall of Minneapolis” after the full film was released on that platform. Comments were attempted to be turned back on twice, but both times YouTube turned them off again.
