    I have just seen the finest documentary ever made about the right to self-defense with firearms. It was produced by my friend and colleague Larry Elder, a WorldNetDaily columnist and an outstanding Los Angeles radio talk-show host. It's called "Michael & Me," and, as you might imagine, it emulates the style of Michael Moore's documentaries and turns the tables on the filmmaker responsible for "Bowling for Columbine." This time it's Moore who is hunted down for an ambush interview the way he famously stalked Roger Smith, the chief executive officer of General Motors, in "Roger & Me," and an ailing...

    If you know someone who likes Michael Moore, you know someone who isn't as smart as they think they are. In fact, there's a pretty good chance that they're not even as smart as I think they are, and that says a lot, because I think they're flat-out stupid. In case you've been luckier than I have and don't know who Michael Moore is, he's a grotesque monster of a man who every few years puts out a documentary that people who consider themselves intellectual hail as brilliant. Michael Moore's movies are nothing so much as they are dishonest. He's...

In the suit, Nichols claims that Moore misled him about the purposes of the his film, Bowling for Columbine, which, he said, "maliciously portrays him as the poster child for what is wrong with America today and falsely accuses him of being one of the perpetrators in the second-worst act of terrorism in the history of the United States."

"You can feel it, can't you? It's a different time," Moore said at a news conference before speaking to a crowd of 7,200 people at the Ritchie Center on the University of Denver campus. Moore compared his reception in Denver this week with the reaction he drew at the Academy Awards earlier this year. Back then, his criticism of President Bush while accepting an Oscar for the...

Ironically, on the same day the DVD was released, Moore issued a libel threat against his critics on MSNBC's "Buchanan & Press," saying, "Every fact in the film is true.

While critics of the filmmaker and author have called on the academy to investigate whether Moore fabricated scenes in the movie, it also appears he misled the academy about the film's eligibility on purely technical grounds. Candidates for Best Documentary feature have unique procedural requirements for eligibility. According to Rule 12, qualification for the 75th Annual Academy Awards in this category demanded that films be exhibited...
