From the article-
Turning to the war in Iraq, Moore accused Gupta, who spent time embedded with US troops in Iraq, and the mainstream media at large of refusing "to ask our leaders the hard questions, and demand the honest answers." Moore laid the blame for the continued US involvement in the war in Iraq at the feet of the media, arguing that they failed to do their jobs and question the Bush war policy.
Looks like MM and Jesse share some things in common- they both think the media is our greatest threat.
Loved his Gupta moments. Sure make him sound like the paid minion he is. Check out MM's site and his comments to Gupta's 'Reality Check'- http://michaelmoore.com/
and see his scathing response to CNN, like-http://www.michaelmoore.com/sicko/news/ ... _10017.php
CNN: "But no matter how much Moore fudged the facts, and he did fudge some facts…"
This is libel. There is not a single fact that is "fudged" in the film. No one has proven a single fact in the film wrong. We expect CNN to correct their mistakes on the air and to apologize to their viewers.
Part 2 of the Blitzer interview- http://www.crooksandliars.com/2007/07/1 ... -round-ii/
Continues the bitch slapping CNN got.
Blitzer throws out some criticisms and Moore slaps them all down, even claiming that an Iranian news agency is reporting that Moore is going to be traveling to Iran to show his new film. Of course, Moore laughs it off and asks if Fox News was really behind that story. At the end of the interview Moore thanks Wolfie for telling him he liked the movie during the break.
All round general fun and mayhem. A must see movie for everyone! http://www.michaelmoore.com/sicko/news/ ... p?id=10019
Speaking of humor: “Sicko” is full of laughs. They're mostly the kind that burst from you when confronted by a lie so outrageous and obvious that the absurdity is overwhelming, but they're real laughs. They get little or no mention in most of the reviews and op-ed pieces I've seen.
Moore knew we'd laugh at the obvious self-serving absurdities of the super rich guys, and I guess that's one of the ways his biases show in the eyes of the corporate press commentators. Perhaps they think he should have paraphrased their idiocies to make them look less foolish, rather than letting them speak for themselves.
