Think Again: Michael Moore, Cause for War?

In case you hadn't noticed, there is a war of words going on about Michael Moore's new movie. Moore's critics accuse him of lies and distortions. In the process, the critics do a lot of lying and distorting themselves. Others defend Moore and attack his critics. Eric Alterman, a well-known voice of the left, takes on Moore's critics, the media, and the Bush administration.

The media, apparently, have finally decided to take a stand for truth in reporting. Their target? Alleged America-hater Michael Moore and his apparently epoch-making "Fahrenheit 9/11." His film turns out to be of such critical importance to the Fate of the Republic that journalists have spared no trite observation in parsing every shot of the film for accuracy. Some do not even bother doing that much, dismissing the film regardless of the level of truth it contains.

All you Michael Moore critics on ATS should read the whole essay. You have spent far too much time reading the lies and propaganda at the "Michael Moore is a Liar" websites.
