    I dont know if this helps.
    But my class was discussing how there are conflicting perspectives both within the film and issues concearning it...
    So within the film each character has a different insentive for why they are helping re-elect the president. so like winnifred is just doing it for her job while the film producer is doing it for fame and things like that so therfore their perspectives on the matter clash which is emphasised in several scenes. and then there are obvious conflictions between the CIA and the opposistion..etc

    However you can also detail coflicting perspectives that surround the film so like people who watch the film that are in that line of work such as a president assistant might find the film offensive as their perspectives on the matter have not been put forward. Its a one sided perspective. its insulting

    Also related material is easy. You just have to look for issues that present different points of view. Just think of any political article so like September 11, the cronulla riots etc you can use the articles to discuss how it present conflicting perspectives as a result of the article.
    Even with the recent tradgedy of Micheal Jackson and how some people are saying he was a drug addict and this angered alot of people etc.
