Seriously, there's no defense for this guy. All I can figure is that those of you who defend him don't know all of the facts. The stories he tells
in his "documentaries" range from truth to outright bold lies and fraud. When one makes a "documentary" and it is later proven that certain facts
in said "documentary" are outright manipulation of information that is prevented as a fact, that makes the entire documentary political propaganda
and it should be presented as such. If Sean Hannity or Rush Bimbo put out a "documentary" that condemned the left and it was presented as a
documentary, the left wingers would be up in arms. However when you're a lefty, if it pushes the agenda, it's ignored.
One great example from farenheight 911. I'm sure you've all read about the infamous newspaper article in the Pantagraph. The article actually
never existed as he presented it. In the movie, Moore shows a bold headlined news article at the top of a page that states "Latest Florida recount
shows Gore won election". However, strangely enough, if one goes to the date (12/19/2001) and page# of the Pantagraph that it shows in the
movie...the article isn't there. How very strange.
What actually happened here is that Moore took a letter to the editor (by a reader of the paper) from the 12/5/2001 issue of the Pantagraph, bolded
the title, made it look like a news article rather than a letter to the editor, moved it to the top of a page, changed the page #, changed the date of
the paper...and after doing all this he presented it as factual evidence in his "documentary".
That is fraud, my friends, pure and simple. He does it throughout his movies. Not every incident is outright fraud like this one, but he has a
tendency to present a situation from one side and "lead the horse to the water" so to speak, so that the watcher thinks they're forming their own
opinion. However, it's based on one-sided information and manipulation.
