Skip to comments.How anti-capitalist Michael Moore built a £30m fortune

Dont be hoodwinked by his casual demeanour and capitalism rants Michael Moores millions make him one of the richest men in American media.
Film-maker Moore, 60, made his name for anti-establishment politics with Capitalism: A Love Story (2009) and Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) accruing a multi-million dollar fortune in the process.
Moores impressive property portfolio was laid bare during divorce proceedings from his wife of 22 years, Kathleen Glynn.
The political controversialist finalised his split from 58-year-old Glynn on Tuesday in a US court in northern Michigan, where the couple owns a £1.2m lakeside home.
The 10,000 square-foot luxury pad is one of nine properties belonging to the couple, who wed in Flint, Michigan, in 1991.
Moore shares his time between his home state and New York City, where he owns a Manhattan apartment.
The couple did not disclose how their fortune would be divided, with Moore commenting on his Facebook page: Kathleen and Michael have mutually and amicably reached a divorce settlement.
In an ironic postscript, Moore added a clip of Bruce Springsteen's Rosalita (Come Out Tonight) to the update. The divorce proceedings had been ongoing since June last year.

It’s OK to be rich as long as you push the left-wing agenda in public.
One might observe, if one were catty, that MM seems to have spend a large part of his fortune on food. I notice that they cut off the photo AtT = above the tummy.
Biggest troll of the century...lol. He scammed dumb libs and lefties out major bucks! I love him.
There’s a lot of money in fiction. BTW anyone notice Tubby hasn’t released one single solitary movie since The One was unconstitutionally elected?
How much is that in US bucks? $60 million? I’m going to write him and ask for some of that.
How did Moore manage to milk public funds, other than indirectly through encouraging people to vote in various liberal dream subsidies? I’d think that if you look at how he acts rather than what he preaches, you’d see a hard core capitalist. Now I would add to that description, “immoral,” but capitalism itself is amoral, it can lend itself nicely to good or to evil.
I guess to release any new media would be like gilding the lily for Moore.
Is that how the British say, "liar"?
Well, this is paltry compared to Al Gore’s little kingdom. Got to have some pity upon poor Moore.
“The revolution is over, comrades. The bourgeoisie won.”
A while back he bragged that employees at the movie theaters he owns make more than $12 an hour and have full medical and dental.
What he failed to mention that he staffs his theaters mostly with volunteers and only 2 or 3 are actual employees. He also doesn’t mention that he takes HUD money to open his theaters or that he was in a legal fight with studios over the unauthorized showing of their films.
Man, that is one cynical Moore. I can understand a consistent, if misguided, liberal. But this is evil.
Cynical, absolutely cynical. (Moore, not you.)
Moore is working on his next movie regarding: (pick one).
1.Showing how Obama and Clinton failed to protect the ambassador and others in Benghazi, failed to respond to ward off the attackers, and covered up the nature of the attack for weeks.
2. Describing the administrations use of the IRS to attack political opponents and sway election results, showing how the actions of Nixon pale by comparison.
3.A major expose showing the numerous actions and policies the administration has enacted supporting terrorists and religious fanatics who have threatened the US.
4. An expose of how some republicans made money buying real estate in their home districts, while owning condos in DC and northern VA.
It is not genetic. It is spiritual.
It’s one of many devils’ tricks. God isn’t the only spiritual being with principles. The devil is, too. The only problem is that the devil wants to destroy what God made.
