In dishonor to Michael Moore and his latest publicity stunt and outright lie. Here is a post I ran before.
The WALT DISNEY CO. is set to spend millions financing
a new explosive Bush-bashing documentary from Michael Moore [BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE]
— a documentary which claims bin Laden was greatly enriched by the Bush family!
DISNEY, via subsidiary MIRAMAX, has agreed to cover the production costs,
said to be in the millions, of Moore’s planned FAHRENHEIT 911.
The Curt Jester has learned that in return for financing his next film that
Mr. Moore has agreed to play Dumbo in the upcoming Dumbo III and to also call
any further films he makes Donald Duckumentaries. Miramax films stated "When
you think of a big fat dumbo who comes to mind first but Michael Moore, so
this is a win win situation for us."
As a fan of Mr Moore, I find such tales dismaying. He did better in just letting his film work speak for itself without manipulating the media engine to work for him. Roger and Me was outrageously funny, but I think later films have yet to regain that plateau.
I use to watch Mr. Moore’s television series which was okay. Since roger and me he had not made any documentaries. Basically they have been propaganda screeds for his point of view.
In bowling for columbine he spliced in footage from events and speeches totally out of context. There were so many outright lies in the movie that there are internet sites that document literally hundreds of factual errors. He was going to screen the movie for the parents of Columbine, but they refused when he wanted to charge them admission.
On his web site he made a prediction that the GOP would lose control during the 2002 elections. When this turned out not to happen he removed all references to his numerous predictions from his web site. Journalistic integrity?
In his famous Oscar speech he lied afterwords by saying that the words came to him during Mass the same day, even though this speech had been pre-written days in advance.
I do not have much sympathy for Catholics like Moore who are pro-abortion, pro-homosexual activity, pro-sexual revolution. He does not seem to have any problem about bearing false witness.
His latest scandal was making a big to do about Disney not distributing his film when he already knew this more than a year ago.
I do pray him hoping that he might return to the actual Catholic faith and not the version that is totally free of hard truths.
a picture’s worth a thousand words.
Sadly, I think Moore has become a victim of the over-inflated attitudes of those he’s pilloried over the years. Maybe it’s time for other liberals to fisk the silly conservatives in film.
