    Dinesh D'Souza's wonderful movie is moving up the Documentary ranks. As of posting this, it is #11 on the Political Documentary list. Political DocumentariesAll of us should have the goal to get this movie to #1 to pass the liar Michael Moore and his anti-American hit piece. I hope we can help this movie get there. Currently, it has grossed 4 million in 1,105 theaters. The liar's movie had 119 million and was in 2,011 theaters.

    A recently released propaganda video by the Islamic extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir is quite revealing. Not only does the video demonstrate the group’s growing effort to package arguments in a manner designed to appeal to Westerners on the political left, but it also serves as a barometer of radical Muslim groups’ broader shift in rhetorical strategy. The video, “Iraq: Past and Present Colonialism,” appears for the first twenty-seven minutes to be a standard leftist critique of the Iraq war, indistinguishable from Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11. The slickly-produced video begins with the history of past colonialism in Iraq—including the Mongol conquest...

    Endeavor Agency's Ari Emanuel talks several times a day to his brother, U.S. Rep. Rahm Emanuel, who is masterminding the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's midterm elections.

    Over the past few years, perhaps no film controversy has inspired more outrage from conservatives than the Walt Disney Company’s handling of the ambitious 2006 miniseries “The Path to 9/11.” In the wake of Michael Moore’s 2004 anti-Bush documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11” and the 2003 CBS biopic “The Reagans,” the Disney censorship fiasco has been a frequent bone of contention on right-wing blogs, AM talk radio and other media outlets. In addition to making cuts in its ABC-TV telefilm after complaints from political forces, the company also shelved plans for a subsequent DVD release. --snip-- Now the imbroglio has been revived...

    Michael Moore is taking America's temperature again. Moore, who won the top honor at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival with "Fahrenheit 9/11," plans a followup to resume his examination of the nation's status in the world in the years since the Sept. 11 attacks. "Fahrenheit 9/11," the only documentary to top $100 million domestically at the box office, was a harsh, hilarious critique of George W. Bush and his administration in the wake of the attacks. The as-yet-untitled followup will have a longer-term approach, film executives overseeing the project said Wednesday. "That movie was about a moment in time, a...

Duncan on Tuesday accused Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Howard Dean of running an ad that features footage from director Michael Moore’s controversial movie “Fahrenheit 9/11.” The ad, which slams McCain for his now-famous New Hampshire town hall line that U.S. troops could be in Iraq for 100 years, features footage of an improvised explosive device (IED) going off near U.S. soldiers.

While Moore has long been a favorite target of those on the political right, this new documentary – "Manufacturing Dissent" – comes from two left-leaning Canadian filmmakers who were once fans and who began their project expecting to tell a positive story.

Sgt.

    Five years after 9/11, it's easy to find partisan divisions. But here's an issue we should be able to agree on: Docudramas--the portrayal of real events and people by actors--are a poor way to teach children and adults history. It's especially iffy to take dramatic license in telling the story of events in which many of the principal players are still living, such as 9/11 or President Reagan's administration. Just ask ABC. Last night, it aired the first part of a six-hour miniseries, "The Path to 9/11." Sandy Berger, who served as President Clinton's national security adviser, bitterly complained about...

    The controversy over Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 just won't go away. The film, which is being advertised with the strapline "Controversy? What controversy?", has been rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America, meaning no one under 17 can see it unless accompanied by an adult. Distributors Lions Gate Films and IFC Films, opening the film next week, are appealing against the decision. The rating came partly because the film shows images of US soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners, images Moore says he had long before the scandal erupted. He told Associated Press he kept quiet because he thought he'd...

He was featured in Michael Moore's antiwar documentary, "Fahrenheit 9/11," portrayed as an overzealous Marine recruiter who targeted poor kids. But Staff Sgt. Raymond Plouhar was far more complicated than that. And it was that complicated man who died in Iraq in late June, as he served with some of the same men he had recruited years ago.

    If there is any justice, and there rarely is, United 93 should explode one of the more outrageous myths of 9/11. It's the one perpetrated by guerrilla filmmaker Michael Moore that purports to show U.S. President George W. Bush asleep at the switch when the terror attacks were occurring in New York and Washington, D.C. You'll recall the famous scene from Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, the most inflammatory piece of agit-prop since Reefer Madness. Bush continues reading a book titled The Pet Goat to a classroom of Florida kindergarten students, despite having been told by an aide that jets have slammed...

The cover line reads, “He was the Taliban’s spin doctor. So what’s he doing at Yale?" In fact, the story shows, Hashemi was at Yale once before—in 2001, appearing at a forum representing the Taliban, a few months before the 9/11 terrorist attacks. A small clip of Hashemi appears in Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11” film. “In some ways,” Hashemi, 27, says today, “I’m the luckiest person in the...

But for the record: In the 1960s, just as conservatism was beginning to grow from a fringe tendency into what it has become — the nation's most potent persuasion — it was threatened by a boarding party of people not much, if any, loonier than Sheehan.

His father, Michael Berg, has intensified his anti-war activities and traveled the globe to meet families of other civilians kidnapped or slain in Iraq.

    First, Michael Moore threw his creative weight and his celluloid into defeating President Bush's re-election. Then he made a big push for an Oscar nomination. He lost on both counts. Why didn't the former golden boy of Hollywood who championed the anti-war, anti-Bush, anti-America movement with his dishonest propaganda piece "Fahrenheit 9/11" garner an Oscar nod? Is the Hollywood crowd wising up to the limited appeal of extremism, or has Moore worn out his welcome? With characteristic zeal, Moore campaigned vigorously for a best picture nomination. "He was at every Oscar party and screening," said Moore's former manager Douglas Urbanski,...

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- George Mason University professors said they're disappointed that the Phi Beta Kappa Society rejected their application to start a chapter on campus after the school rescinded a speaking invitation to "Fahrenheit 9/11" filmmaker Michael Moore. After the 27,000-student school in Fairfax submitted its preliminary report in the application process to establish a chapter in the fall, the honor society's nominating committee learned that the state university canceled the liberal activist's appearance after conservative state legislators complained. University President Alan Merten had said that Moore's appearance was canceled because his $35,000 speaking fee was too high for...

    Halle Berry won an Academy Award. Now she's won a Razzie. George W. Bush and Arnold Schwarzenegger won elections. Now they've won Razzies. Miss Berry was picked yesterday as worst actress for 2004's action bomb "Catwoman," which also took the prize for worst film at the 25th annual Razzies, an Oscar spoof that trashes Hollywood's low points. Mr. Bush won the worst-actor award for his appearance in news and archival footage of Michael Moore's satiric documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11." Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld was voted worst supporting actor for "Fahrenheit 9/11," while Britney Spears' fleeting cameo in the documentary brought...

    LOS ANGELES - Hoisting her Academy Award in one hand and newly won Razzie in the other, Halle Berry reveled in her career low point. "Omigosh, oh my God," Berry gasped Saturday night, feigning excitement as she held her hand to her mouth and forehead. "I never in my life thought that I would be here, winning a Razzie. It's not like I ever aspired to be here, but thank you." Berry was picked as worst actress for 2004's action bomb "Catwoman," which also took the prize for worst film at the 25th annual Razzies, an Oscar spoof that trashes...

    Did Democratic propagandameister Michael Moore fib last month when said during an interview that he hadn't made any money from his Bush-bashing flick, "Fahrenheit 9/11." According to the March issue of Vanity Fair, Moore stands to pocket millions in profits from the movie. But in January, during an interview about his film on the UK's Channel 4 network, Moore was asked: "If you are so concerned about helping our troops in Iraq, why don't you donate 100 percent of the money from your movies to that cause?" Moore shot back: "I haven't seen a dime from this movie!" According to...

    Sept. 11th was a terrible disaster for America - and it hit America hard financially. But one person who has benefited financially is filmmaker Michael Moore, who parlayed the disaster into a whopping $50 million for himself. So reports Vanity Fair in its March profile of the liberal documentary maker and his odyssey with the film that trashed President Bush by placing him in a giant conspiracy involving the Saudis, the bin Laden family and Sept. 11th. Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" - which cost $6 million to produce - was a worldwide hit, generating box office sales of more than $200...

    A FORMER close associate of Osama Bin Laden is to sue the film-maker Michael Moore for using his footage of the Al-Qaeda chief in the documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. Essam Deraz, an Egyptian, spent almost four years in Afghanistan filming Bin Laden at training camps and fighting, gaining unprecedented access to the terrorist leader. He was the only person to film Bin Laden during the late 1980s and has the only footage of the Saudi exile in battle in Afghanistan. Deraz has started legal action in Egypt and America to seek compensation for use of his footage in Fahrenheit 9/11, the...

    A former Brigham Young University film student has maxed out his credit cards to make a $10,000 documentary about "Fahrenheit 9/11" director Michael Moore's controversial visit to Utah Valley State College. "This Divided State" premieres Thursday at UVSC's Ragan Theater. Steven Greenstreet, who cut the 102-minute production from 66 hours of interview and event footage, said he's trying to find a distributor. He's entering the documentary in a dozen film festivals, and plans are in the works with the Center for American Progress to fund a national college tour, the 25-year-old filmmaker said. Greenstreet had been working on a documentary...

    SNUBBING MICHAEL MOORE Congratulations to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for getting this one right! The Academy snubbed Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" in this year's Oscar nominations. Moore reportedly withdrew the politically hostile film from contention in the documentary category not only because he planned to air it before the November elections (a disqualification under Academy rules), but also in the high hopes that it would be nominated for best-picture. Moore's hopes were dashed when the gamble backfired and the film was shut out across the board. "Fahrenheit 9/11" is the latest revisionist "fantasy" film by Moore...

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Two days after being snubbed when the Oscar nominations were announced, Michael Moore was left off the list Thursday when the Writers Guild of America unveiled nominees for its first documentary writing award for a feature film.

    It was certainly a money-maker, grossing over $100 million last year, but Fahrenheit 911 will never be an Academy Award winner. Today, the Academy shut out the movie as it received zero nominations. Several months ago, there was heady talk about the movie scoring big at the Oscar’s; however, it will not even win one.
