THE hunter has become the hunted. Michael Moore, the celebrated left-wing film-maker, has become the unwilling subject of a new documentary that raises damaging questions about the credibility of his work.
The director and star of successful documentaries such as Roger & Me, Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11, Moore has repeatedly been accused by his right-wing enemies of distorting or manipulating the material in his films. On his website he dismisses his critics as “wacko attackos”.

I cannot stand to look at the man, let alone listen/watch his endlessly biased, opinionated,
Documentaries by a muppet? Muppetmentaries. Who can take that serious?
I agree with the Big O with the point that, at best his work...er, I can't even call it that...his "stuff" should be considered (and none-to seriously) "opinion journalism."
Didn't I mention I can't stand the man, or what, or the way he does things?

Oh poor Michael. Im surprised he's still around. I thought Al Gore killed him and ate his heart to gain his powers.
Why didnt he present his "documentaries" as op-eds rather than fact?
I guess it doesnt matter. There isnt any integrity in docs or journalism anymore.
Everyone thinks theyre special and the schools are filled with journalism majors who when confronted with "youre just spreading you ideology" they agree and dont see the problem with it.
Ive lost quite a few friends to "jounalism." And they dont see anything wrong with it.

Michael Moore is a liar and an opportunist.
I welcome anything that exposes his corruption so that people will stop spending money on the garbage he pumps out.

I just bought The Awful Truth, by Michael Moore (never seen it, think it might be interesting). Now I see this.
I guess deep down you always knew he was biased on his views and what he shows.
But then again so are all the other media outlets
So I guess this makes him no better then the others, except the fact that he's on our side.
I do think that this evidence could damage our, "conspiacy theorists", credibility to the the public.

Nothing new here.
He's had his "documentaries" picked apart in the past, both on a factual and personal level.
If he'd just stop calling his films "documentaries" and instead "opinion journalism" none of this would be an issue.
