This letter (press release) from Michael Moore is nothing but PR for his website and his cause.
First of all, this is from a mailing list. Mailing lists, more often than not, are about promoting things. Not for nefarious reasons, but for
promoting. They send something to you in hopes you will go to a website, a store, subscribe to their beliefs etc etc.
Second, I doubt he believes that they meant any kind of physical harm. Why do I think that?
Stop the American people from going to see "Sicko" -- and the way to do that was to cause some form of harm to me (either personally, professionally
If this was a doc, we would have gotten some scary music, and maybe even a zoom in on his face. Maybe a funny cartoon clip of some guys in suits
sneaking up behind him at a scenic overlook.
It was sensationalist when this group said it, and sensationalist when he does.
I said this letter (press release) was PR. "For what 'Supes?" You ask.
(There was really only one reason "Sicko" didn't sell as many tickets as "Fahrenheit" and that was because of a felony that was committed -- a
felony that I will discuss for the first time on this site in the coming weeks or months ahead. Stay tuned.)
He tells us to "stay tuned" to HIS website about a FELONY.
Now, if he had proof of said FELONY, why would he not have come out with the info, to authorities. Why would he not say "Screw this little letter,
I'm hitting them with the big one!" After all, if I found out someone committed a FELONY against my film, I wouldn't give them advance notice I was
going to tell the public. I'd just do it.
He doesn't give a date. He doesn't say "next week" "tomorrow" or "next month" He says "in the coming weeks or months ahead." (so make sure
you check out his site daily so you don't miss it!)
Of course insurance companies would want to discredit Michael Moore (and from the sounds of it, they got some dirt on him) they don't want him
hurting their business. This is par for the course when it comes to someone threatening your business. It's dirty yea, but not uncommon, at all.
This letter (press release) was to promote his "reveal" of a FELONY that he feels was committed, while gaining sympathy.
I can't say it's a bad idea, but this isn't about him being "physically threatened" it's about him pushing his next "big thing". That is all.
He doesn't write this as someone who is scared for their life, he writes this as a business man.
