Spreading The Truth

It's a fact, sadly, that many of the mindless myrmidons who saw Michael Moore's movie Fahrenheit 9/11 believe every statement made in the film to be entirely true. Like sheep, some folks are easily led astray. Truth doesn't seem to mean much to Moore as he misleads, misrepresents and outright lies about the facts.

An outstanding source of truth and information to refute Moore's claims can be found at Fifty-nine Deceits in Fahrenheit 9/11. That number (59) seems to be ever-increasing. Dave Kopel has meticulously catalogued Moore's untruths, and presents the facts and documented support for refuting the lies.

One of the best-known "misrepresentations" Moore makes in the film involves a headline shown from the Bloomington, Illinois Pantagraph. The folks at explain what was done, with photos and documentation. Just one example of Michael Moore creating evidence to support a lie.

Premiering on Sunday, September 12th is the new documentary Michael Moore Hates America. This actually isn't a hatchet job on Michael Moore. To quote the Michael Wilson, the filmmaker, "It's a journey across the nation where we meet celebrities, scholars and average folks alike, and we find out whether the American Dream is still alive! In the process, we'll look at Michael Moore's claims about the country, its people, and our way of life." I whole-heartedly recommend this film, and recommend everyone see it (especially those who have seen Moore's film). Click here for a trailer for the movie.

One more thing... if you happened to see Moore's film Bowling For Columbine, here's a site for you.
