  • Michael Moore Touts Ground Zero Mosque, Suggests McDonald's Worse Than Terrorists

    Some think of September 11 as a date for solemn remembrance. Others see it as another occasion for idiocy. Take Michael Moore's 9/11 message: "I am opposed to the building of the "mosque" two blocks from Ground Zero. I want it built on Ground Zero." He says it's because Islam was "stolen" from the real Muslims at the Twin Towers, and it should be given back on the same spot. But he's not finished: "There is a McDonald's two blocks from Ground Zero. Trust me, McDonald's has killed far more people than the terrorists." And the terrorists remind Moore of...

    (CNN) – Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore is weighing in on the proposed Islamic Community Center in New York City, stirring the the pot by saying he doesn't want it to be built near Ground Zero but rather on Ground Zero. "I want it built on Ground Zero. Why? Because I believe in an America that protects those who are the victims of hate and prejudice," Moore writes in an open letter on his website. "I believe in an America that says you have the right to worship whatever God you have, wherever you want to worship. "And I believe in...

    Filmmaker Michael Moore says all the Republicans who voted against health care can take comfort in the fact their families will be covered—and universal coverage is still a long way off. To My Fellow Citizens, the Republicans: Thanks to Sunday night's vote, that child of yours who has had asthma since birth will now be covered after suffering for her first nine years as an American child with a pre-existing condition. Thanks to Sunday night's vote, that 23-year-old of yours who will be hit one day by a drunk driver and spend six months recovering in the hospital will now...

    VENICE (Reuters) - Capitalism is evil. That is the conclusion of U.S. documentary maker Michael Moore's latest movie "Capitalism: A Love Story," which premieres at the Venice film festival on Sunday. Blending his trademark humour with tragic individual stories, archive footage and publicity stunts, the 55-year-old launches an attack on the capitalist system, arguing that it benefits the rich and condemns millions to poverty.

    A woman interviewed by controversial filmmaker Michael Moore for "Fahrenheit 9/11" claims he edited her segment to downplay her support for President Bush and for American troops fighting the war on terror. Joanne Duetsch, who appeared in a "9/11" scene filmed in Washington, D.C., said when Moore approached her in March 2004 – shortly after al-Qaida-orchestrated bombings in Madrid – he was accompanied by Lila Lipscomb, whom she initially believed was an actress but later learned was the mother of a fallen soldier in Iraq. Duetsch says she didn't know who Moore was at the time but instead assumed he...

    TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Michael Moore said his next documentary already has HMOs quaking in their boots. Moore has not yet begun shooting the film Sicko but his planned critique of the U.S. health care system, he said, is making "freaked-out" HMOs warn employees what to do if approached by the filmmaker. At this point, we haven't shot anything yet and they're totally discombobulated," Moore said at the inaugural Traverse City Film Festival. Moore, who lives near Traverse City, founded the film festival with local movie buffs to showcase excellent films. Moore described good movies as a bridge across...

    Q: Do you give any credence to these Internet conspiracy theories about the voting machines in Ohio?A: Nah. And I don't have a double standard here. I've stressed since 2000 that Gore won the popular vote. Now, even if Kerry won Ohio, clearly more people across the country wanted Bush than Kerry. So there you go. Deal with it.

    RENO, Nev. (AP) -- The president of the University of Nevada, Reno says "Fahrenheit 9/11" filmmaker Michael Moore "must be allowed to speak" when he visits the campus this week. Moore's scheduled appearance Wednesday has prompted criticism from Republican student groups and some alumni. In response, UNR President John Lilley has written a letter underscoring the university's commitment to free speech. "I encourage the students, faculty and community to respect Mr. Moore's right to express his views and to remind others of his right to express them," Lilley wrote last week. "Whatever you think of his views, he is now...

    Michael Moore and his liberal backers are working on a deal to have his Bush-bashing conspiracy movie "Fahrenheit 9/11" piped into millions of households just days before the election. Citing "TV sources," the Hollywood newspaper Variety said that In Demand, the largest pay-per-view distributor in the U.S., was planning to air "Fahrenheit" at 8 p.m. on election eve - just hours before the polls open all across America. But there may be a hitch. Reports the New York Post's Page Six, Columbia TriStar, which released the "Fahrenheit" DVD last week, has the right to block any small-screen broadcast while the...

    Michael Moore doesn't want to admit it, but he thinks Republicans are very good at what they do. "They're up at the crack of dawn trying to figure out what minority group they want to prevent from getting married today," he said. "On our side, we never see the crack of dawn, because we've been up all night." Moore spoke to a sold-out Carrier Dome crowd last night as a part of the 2004 Syracuse Symposium: Humor. The audience of 10,000, however, wasn't only expecting a good laugh. "He's more than just funny," said Eric Holtzwarth, assistant dean of The...

    Documentarian and liberal rabble-rouser Michael Moore kicked off a 62-speech, pre-election tour Monday with a relatively subtle dig at President Bush (news - web sites). He read "My Pet Goat" to an audience of more than 6,000. That was the children's book Bush read to an elementary school class after he heard about the 9/11 attacks. In an appearance that was part stump speech and part standup routine, Moore didn't stay subtle for long, criticizing his preferred presidential candidate as well as the incumbent. "It's debilitating to have a candidate who does not seem quite clear on where he stands...

    SAN MARCOS ---- Calling it an issue of free speech, controversial filmmaker Michael Moore said Friday that he won't speak in North County unless Cal State San Marcos pays its share of his $37,000 cost, even though community members have donated more than enough money to cover it. Moore's scheduled visit to North County next month was canceled Monday by university President Karen Haynes, who said she was concerned about the need for a "balancing perspective." Speaking in a telephone interview from New York, Moore said Friday that "the university needs to behave as the caretakers of a democratic institution....
