In 2002s Red Dragon, a prequel to Silence of the Lambs, FBI agent Will Graham lures a killer called The Tooth Fairy out from hiding by leaking an offensive profile to a tabloid reporter. Enraged by his public characterization as impotent and pathetic, "The Tooth Fairy targets the reporter as his next victim.
A similar snare has lured the odious Michael Moore out from whichever rock he resides under between deceitful documentaries. Over the weekend, a story broke regarding his 2007 film SiCKO. A WikiLeaks revelation indicated the film had been banned in Cuba. Several blogs and mainstream media sources ran with the story. Enraged by his public characterization as impotent and pathetic, Moore stood to correct the record. In so doing, he added credence to his well-established role as communist propagandist.
'Sicko' had just been playing in Cuban theaters. Then the entire nation of Cuba was shown the film on national television on April 25, 2008! The Cubans embraced the film so much so it became one of those rare American movies that received a theatrical distribution in Cuba. I personally ensured that a 35mm print got to the Film Institute in Havana. Screenings of 'Sicko' were set up in towns all across the country.Pay attention, because this may be the only time I ever write this. Michael Moore is right.

Saying this played all over Cuba is like saying it played all over Arkansas without anyone paying admission.
Sorry I like the banned version of this story better
So WikiLeaks was wrong? And the information originated from where?
Thanks Walter Scott Hudson.
Guardian censoring Wikileaks documents?
(Guardian has docs, pulls Sicko story)

When the U.S. Government set up a marque at Guantanamo running quotes from greats such as Martin Luther King Jr and Mahatma Gandhi concerning Freedom, Castro had a wall built to block the messages from Cuban eyes.
The regime that would block Gandhi and MLK Jr allows Michael Moore's propaganda.
That's really something to be proud of, Mikey!
