Michael Moore Gets Big O

Imagine my surprise to read over at Fox News a favorable review of Fahrenheit 9/11. Michael Moore got another standing ovation last night at the NY premiere of his latest movie. Roger Friedman of Fox wrote "It turns out to be a really brilliant piece of work, and a film that members of all political parties should see without fail.

"As much as some might try to marginalize this film as a screed against President George Bush, "F9/11" — as we saw last night — is a tribute to patriotism, to the American sense of duty  —  and at the same time a indictment of stupidity and avarice."

I continued reading the list of luminaries who attended the show at the Ziegfield last night after I picked myself off the floor. My hero, Martha Stewart was there. Friedman mentions the 11 minutes that Bush sat in the classroom in Florida on 9/11. I guess he didn't know about it. Probably because his employer knowingly kept that information from the public for almost 3 years. And people wonder why those of us who know stuff are angry. We aren't necessarily radical liberals and we definitely aren't anti-American... we just bothered to find out the truth. Duh.

I also read that Michael Moore had footage of Prisoner Abuse in Iraq but chose not to use it. He had the footage long before 60 Minutes broke the story. I don't know if this is a rumor or not but I heard somewhere that Michael Moore also interviewed Nick Berg. This is going to be one hell of a movie.

Since we don't have any real journalists working in journalism... at least we have someone with a working set of balls like Michael Moore.
