    The red-state warriors and blue-state battlers are at it again. This time, the goal isn't the White House. It's the Oscar. In one color-coded corner: Conservative groups pushing for nominations for The Passion of the Christ. In the other color-coded corner: Proud liberal Michael Moore pushing for nominations for Fahrenheit 9/11. If the contrast holds, Academy Award season may bare more than a passing resemblance to this fall's divisive general election. Promises Patrick Hynes: "It will be all that and more." Hynes is a senior account executive at the Washington, D.C.-based GOP consulting firm Marsh Copsey + Scott. This week,...

    Michael Moore will be surrounded by more than just fans at the screening of “Fahrenheit 9/11” in Crawford, Texas tonight. The gadfly filmmaker plans to show his controversial documentary today in the town where Bush vacations, and a source says he intends on having armed guards there protecting him. As The Scoop reported earlier, Moore has been getting death threats, and a source says the situation has gotten worse. In fact, fellow filmmaker Spike Lee, while promoting his own film “She Hate Me,” has told interviewers that “they’re out to get” Moore who “has an armed guard 24/7.” Moore’s rep...

    In his new movie, Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore reviews the Bush administration’s publicly stated rationale for the war against terrorism in Afghanistan – it was part of the U.S. response to the attacks of September 11, 2001 – and then suggests that the real reason for the war was, at least in part, to enable Unocal to proceed with a natural gas pipeline project in Afghanistan and for other U.S. energy and oil-service companies to participate in various projects in that country. Unocal has absolutely no intention of participating in an Afghanistan pipeline project nor are we in discussions with...

    [excerpted] Moviemaker Michael Moore is entitled to his opinion. I even respect his audacity. I mean, come on? Who else has the guts to make up such garbage about any sitting president (unless you believe that former President Bill Clinton is innocent of sexual harassment — in which case Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, Monica Lewinsky and Juanita Broaddrick are all just as audacious). I'm not going to sit here and point out the inaccuracies in Moore's film. You can get that on any number of Web sites or news stories. Look, "Fahrenheit 911" is an overwhelming success, considering the historical...
  • My First Wild Week with "Fahrenheit 9/11"... By Michael Moore (count the lies and distortions)

    Friends, Where do I begin? This past week has knocked me for a loop. "Fahrenheit 9/11," the #1 movie in the country, the largest grossing documentary ever. My head is spinning. Didn't we just lose our distributor 8 weeks ago? Did Karl Rove really fail to stop this? Is Bush packing? Each day this week I was given a new piece of information from the press that covers Hollywood, and I barely had time to recover from the last tidbit before the next one smacked me upside the head: ** More people saw "Fahrenheit 9/11" in one weekend than all...

    Michael Moore, whose blistering, awarding-winning attack on the Bush administration, "Fahrenheit 9/11," is setting box-office records for a "documentary" says his next project will be an expose of health care in the United States. He told the London Guardian he hopes to embarrass health insurance companies and hospitals into continuing to care for patients with no coverage – highlighting holes in the American system. This time, Moore says he will be part of the story, as he was in previous work – using a hand-held camera and attempting to embarrass health-care providers into treating indigent patients. He said he believes...
