Well said, and ditto.

And so you don't feel left out Fart, I feel the same way about your posts and your "logic".

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

You can claim he's not, you may not wish him to be, but as long as you live in the US, he is.

All the arguements in the world will not change that.

Id like to see some proof of the jumbled sentences etc. Surelly if this were true in the land of the lawyer somebody would have sued Moore's ass by now.

I'd also like to hear what he has to say about the various claims made in those 2 articles.

shoe writes:

Those two sites you linked: one is a commentary. Someone elses opinion does not make fact.

Although it is a commentary, it also includes many examples of the dishonest representations Moore uses. Not slanting, not biased "spinning", not selective quotation, not even just taking quotes out of context; but outright falsehoods and staged events.

The other is a decent article, but it fails to acknowledge one thing..
There is no such thing as an unbiased documentary.


The author's point is that Moore has gone beyond bias -- way beyond bias and into actual lies, fabrication, and actionable libel. The author does not criticize Moore for slanting, he criticizes him for dishonesty. Bowling for Columbine is no more a documentary than was Oliver Stone's movie about the Kennedy assassination. If you had read the link, you would know this already. Here is what he has to say about your point:

"The point is not that Bowling is unfair, or that its conclusions are incorrect. No, the point is that Bowling is deliberately, seriously, and consistently deceptive. A viewer cannot count upon any aspect of it, even when the viewer believes he is seeing video of an event occurring or a person speaking."

It's all there on the link. You did actually take the time to read it before shooting off your yap, didn't you? The author is scrupulously careful to provide links on where, for example, you can obtain the footage of Heston's speeches. Anyone with that footage and a copy of Bowling for Columbine can compare the two and see precisely how Moore has rearranged it all. The author details it practically frame by frame, for pete's sake!

Surelly if this were true in the land of the lawyer somebody would have sued Moore's ass by now.

There is no question that Heston has an actionable case of libel. Heston, however, is a very old, very ill man, with more money than he needs to live out the rest of his days. I don't blame him for not bothering to give this drivel more attention than it deserves.

Some more commentary for those who can't be bothered reading the link:

Moore's own assessment of Bowling is to the point: "It's funny, poignant and interesting, your perfect Saturday night out." That might of course be said of good comedic fiction.

For a documentary, though, one expects more. For example, truth.

The point is not that Bowling is unfair, or lacking in objectivity. One might hope that a documentary would be fair and objective, but nothing rules out a rousing polemic now and then.

The point is far more fundamental: Bowling for Columbine is dishonest. It is fraudulent. It fixes upon a theme, and advances it, whenever necessary, by deception. It even uses the audio/video editor to assemble a Heston speech that Heston did not give, and to turn sympathetic phrases into arrogant ones. You can't even trust the narrator to read you a plaque or show you a speech, for Pete's sake.

The bottom line: can a film be called a documentary when the viewer cannot trust an iota of it, not only the narration, but the video? I suppose film critics could debate that one for a long time, and some might prefer entertainment and effect to fact and truth. But the Academy Award rules here are specific. Rule 11 lays out "Special Rules for the Documentary Award." And it begins with the definition: "A documentary film is defined as a non-fiction motion picture . . . ." It goes on to say that a documentary doesn't always have to show the "actual occurrence": it can employ re-enactment, etc., "as long as the emphasis is on factual content and not on fiction."

Unfortunately, the Academy seems to have considered Rule 11 as dispensible so long as the film in question is one attacking one Charlton Heston, and the NRA.

I agree 100% with what Michael Moore said at the Academy Awards. He hit the nail on the head, and it's nice to see people slam the tyrant Bush at large events such as the Academy Awards.

Everyone should go here and click under Documentary Feature to watch streaming video of Moore answering the media's questions after the ceremony.
