Michael Moore, propagandist and obese phony bitch..

Postby Woe Now » Mon Mar 12, 2007 1:33 pm

What a surprise. Maybe y'all can get your eight bucks back, considering you paid to view an infomercial. Shit you can get that for free all day on Air America.

Documentary questions Moore's tactics..

From the film about Moore, "Manufacturing Dissent."

Among their revelations in the movie, which had its world premiere Saturday night at the South by Southwest film festival: That Moore actually did speak with then-General Motors chairman Roger Smith, the evasive subject of his 1989 debut "Roger & Me," but chose to withhold that footage from the final cut.

Yes, Michael Moore is a propagandist, and, yes, obese.

While this in itself is not a good thing, it is an absolute abhorance when propaganda underlies the decision-making and justification for a war initiated by Little Boy Georgie and the Dicks. But hey, at least Georgie and one of the Dicks are not obese.

That's old news. I thought everyone knew that he does some creative editing and plays loose with the facts. I don't think that necessarily makes him phony. All
"documentaries" have a point of view.

Oprah,

You just couldn't help yourself could you? This thread is about the phoney Michael Moore and you tried to make about the war in Iraq. Don't you know that your talkingpoints.com strategy has been exposed. Stop trying to use it.

How ironic of you to say that.

For the record, I did address the topic of Micahel Moore in my post and clearly stated my opinion that he is indeed a propagandist.

Fact and reason can be exhausting sometimes. Discussing in a vacuum is easy and the only place that demos can walk lock-step without challenge.

That's the pot calling the kettle black if I ever heard it. Ever pay a visit to Lucianne.com or FreeRepublic.com? On those places, you actually get "banned" for posting anything except the most rabidly right-wing opinions.

No I haven't visited those website, but I have seen people on this forum calling for posters with differing views to be banned.

The team who made Manufacturing Dissent can also be termed propagandists - they put their film together to "expose" Moore within the film community, but the majority of the stuff they're pointing out was never a secret. The Roger & Me allegations, for example, are as old as the film - and Moore was sued at the time by a number of parties who felt that they were misrepresented in the film. This is just an easy way for the filmmakers to make a name for themselves - and the concept probably also helped it secure financing.

Ban the Tolerator for being intolerant of other people calling for bannings.

Oh, jeepers, different people seem to have different agendas.
Oh, lawdy, the left is trying the same underhanded tactics the right has wallowed in.
Holy moly.
