  • Why The President Went Golfing Today

    In his Farenheit 9/11, filmmaker Michael Moore juxtaposes images and words of a terrorist attack in Israel with President Bush's first words about the incident, spoken to a press pool on a golf course, with him leaning casually against a tree. Today, as the nation's law enforcement agencies respond to an attempted terrorist attack on U.S. soil, as the cable news channels and news websites pull in reinforcements to cover the incident from all angles, President Obama has been silent. In fact, he's been golfing. He received a counterterrorism briefing early this morning, Hawaii time, and moments later, left for...

    Michael Moore is making a sequel to "Fahrenheit 9/11" for Paramount Vantage and Overture Films, who will shop the project to international buyers when the Cannes Film Festival and market get under way today. The two companies are co-financing and co-producing the untitled documentary, which will be released in 2009. Overture will distribute the film domestically, while Vantage will handle international. Moore may be leaving the Weinstein Co. -- where he made his last two films, including "Fahrenheit" -- but Overture and Vantage are no strangers to the filmmaker. Overture CEO Chris McGurk and COO Danny Rosett were both at...

    ...about intelligent design and evolutionIn the film Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, narrator Ben Stein poses as a "rebel" willing to stand up to the scientific establishment in defense of freedom and honest, open discussion of controversial ideas like intelligent design (ID). But Expelled has some problems of its own with honest, open presentations of the facts about evolution, ID—and with its own agenda. Here are a few examples—add your own with a comment, and we may add it to another draft of this story.

    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - An Iraqi militant group has produced an elaborate video of what it said were attacks on U.S. troops, in the latest example of the increasingly sophisticated propaganda war being waged by Iraqi insurgents. "The Code of Silence" was posted on the Internet by the Rashedeen Army, thought to be a relatively small Sunni group which has produced videos in the past of attacks it claims to have carried out. At almost an hour in length, it is the longest and most professionally made of recent postings by mainly Sunni militant and insurgent groups fighting the U.S.-backed government....

    In an interview posted today on the Web, documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles claims that his appearance in Mike Wilson's documentary Michael Moore Hates America is cobbled together from "stolen" footage obtained without his consent and he has contacted his lawyer about the matter because the filmmakers "misrepresented themselves." Unedited video footage released by the documentary filmmakers soon after this story broke prove that Albert Mayles is lying.

    CANNES, FRANCE Twelve months after Michael Moore scooped Cannes' top award with "Fahrenheit 9/11," - a scathing indictment of the Bush adminstration's handling of the war in Iraq - a very different movie director screened a very different view of the war at the world's premier cinematic gathering. Director Hiner Saleem did not win the Golden Palm this year. But his film "Kilometre Zero" created a good deal of buzz at the competition, which closed on Saturday, not least because of its final scene. "We're free! We're free!" two Iraqi Kurdish exiles shout exultantly as they hear the news...

    In early August 2004, Karl Rove, President Bushs top political advisor, was having lunch with a small group of journalists at the Oval Room, a restaurant across Lafayette Square from the White House. The talk off the record, unless Rove agreed to be quoted was about strategy in the presidential race. Was Kerrys emphasis on his Vietnam record a mistake? Was Bush going to offer a full-scale defense of the war in Iraq? Would he push issues like Social Security reform? After the discussion touched on a number of heavy topics, I asked Rove what he thought of...

    Despite his best efforts, left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore did nothing to hurt the business of an American investment firm with past links to Saudi Arabia and the family of Osama bin Laden. Londons Guardian newspaper reported The Carlyle Group says 2004 was its "best ever" year, despite Moore's attempt to tarnish the firm's reputation in his schlockumentary "Fahrenheit 9/11." According to the paper, Carlyle reported a return of $5.3 billion to its investors last year, shedding all or part of 71 investments while acquiring 107 new ones and raising $7.8 billion for investment. The amount the firm paid out to...

    Michael Moore and his agitprop film "Fahrenheit 9/11" were nowhere to be found on the lists of Academy Awards nominees released last week. And despite his commercial success, the Writers Guild omitted Moore from consideration for its first list of documentary writing award nominees. The only award Moore received was from a gun rights group highlighting his hypocrisy after a bodyguard for this maker of the 2003 Academy Award-winning anti-gun "Bowling for Columbine" got arrested in New York City for carrying a handgun not licensed there. Hypocrisy is nothing new for Michael Moore, nor the Hollywood Left. But Hollywood makes...

    The Academy Award nominations came out today. Nothing. Well, three minor nominations for The Passion of the Christ, and, let's see, there was nothing for Fahrenheit 9/11. And that's because that idiot, Michael Moore, decided to keep the movie out of the documentary category and instead hold out for the best picture category. It's a cut and paste job. What is he thinking? I mean, I wouldn't even call that a documentary. It's a basement cut and paste job. To call that thing a movie is an absolute disgrace to people who take movie making seriously. So we're not surprised...

    "In mocking anti-gun film-maker Michael Moore, we're conferring upon him a Hollywood Hypocrite Award," John Snyder, Public Affairs Director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), announced today. Moore, said Snyder, "certainly deserves the hypocrisy designation. He promotes an anti-gun owner philosophy for the general public at the same time that he employs gunmen for his own precious personal protection." Two years ago, Snyder recalled, "Moore received an Oscar for his anti-gun pseudo-documentary, 'Bowling for Columbine,' in which he conveyed the idea that gun owners generally are paranoid. Yet he has not responded to...

    Moore is in the line of Clint's ire Clint Eastwood squinted like Dirty Harry Tuesday night as he took aim at Michael Moore. "Michael Moore and I actually have a lot in common - we both appreciate living in a country where there's free expression," Eastwood told the star-dotted crowd attending the National Board of Review awards dinner at Tavern on the Green, where Eastwood picked up a Special Filmmaking Achievement prize for "Million Dollar Baby." Then, the Republican-leaning actor/director advised the lefty filmmaker: "But, Michael, if you ever show up at my front door with a camera - I'll...

    I love surfing wacko liberal websites. From them, I get a daily dose of good humor and ideas for future columns. The most fun I get is surfing Michael Moore's website. I love reading the warped political commentary Mr. Moore posts on his site. I am sure in his mind, his ideas make perfect sense, but to me his ideas are just liberal propaganda coming from another Loony Left Coast Liberal. In fact, since his ideas are so far to the left, I have theorized that someday Hollywood liberals and other wackos around the world will crown Michael Moore "King...

    When you think of controversial filmmaker Michael Moore, you think of a man who is strongly associated with left-wing politics. Consequently, it should come as no surprise that Moore, even when giving speeches to a college-level stage class, will most likely mix in his political point of view. That, according to theater professor Susan Speers, who is defending her use of a University of Akron (Ohio) facility for a speech Moore gave to her class Oct. 30, just days before the Nov. 2 presidential election. University officials have pledged to investigate Speers' use of the campus's Knight Auditorium as the...

    I want to expand a little bit with the aid of Jim Geraghty at National Review Online. A lot of reaction over the weekend out there. When the bin Laden tape came out, you know, I was glued to it on Friday afternoon and all day on Saturday. I was watching to see what people thought of it, and I was stunned as the weekend went on. I was literally stunned at how desensitized - this is a guy that murdered 3,000 Americans, and we hear, "Oh, he wants a truce." That may be, but what does that mean, for...

    For a guy who loves to bash Republicans and conservatives as purveyors of selfishness and greed, filmmaker Michael Moore seems determined to emulate that kind of behavior. The vitriolic anti-Bush propagandist is making one last pre-election offer of his schlockumentary, "Fahrenheit 9/11," in which he blames the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on President Bush, for viewing online. Apparently Moore's left-wing activism against this president knows no bounds. He has made it clear he will stop at nothing to ensure his defeat. Election Day is mere hours away, and still Moore is working steadfastly to bring his defeatist message to as...
