    "Here's the truth they can't or won't report: I'm the one who has supported these troops - much more than the bloviators on Fox News," Moore writes.Filmmaker Michael Moore caused a firestorm this week when he tweeted, in response to the film American Sniper, "My uncle [was] killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot you in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders are worse."

    Rupert Murdoch says he's a huge fan of American Sniper, and anyone who thinks otherwise -- "Hollywood leftists" in particular -- are completely out of touch with America. Murdoch just weighed in on the left vs. right controversy surrounding the film, after Seth Rogen and Michael Moore both initially appeared to criticize American Sniper on Twitter, sparking a national debate in the process. The mogul, who owns 20th Century Fox movie studios and routinely takes to Twitter to praise Fox films, offered his support for the Clint Eastwood film, which was released by rival Warner Bros. Murdoch wrote on Twitter,...

    Two well known lovelies in Hollywood went in full, Anti-American-Doofus-Mode, this past week over American Sniper; a movie that celebrates our military, patriotism, Christianity and killing terrorists, via a sniper who could bust a jihadistís noggin at well over one click. Hollywood hates that type of tale and you can tell they do by how rarely such a film like that tumbles from Tinseltown. Indeed, in todayís sassy milieu, Hollywood hails only as a military ďheroĒ someone who turns against our armed forces, steals our secrets and sells them to an albino Australian, then gets a sex change and starts...

There was some outrage about it, and Rogen clarified on Twitter Monday that he wasnít comparing the film about Chris Kyle to Nazi propaganda; the former just reminded him of the Basterds...

    Michael Moore, a guy who has made his whole career about ambushing people and then cutting the film to make them look silly, mean or evil-- and importantly, unable to reply--suddenly looks silly, mean and evil. I mean sillier, meaner and more evil than he normally looks with his oversized clothes and food stained sweatshirts in the 10,000 square foot mansion and the Manhattan condo he apparently doesnít even use. Moore was doing his usual sniping on social media, because he believes someone still cares about his opinion. The self-appointed mouthpiece for the 99% with the $50 million bank account...

    As I may have had occasion to mention before, movies go as naturally together with paranoia as they do with voyeurism. Possibly with other mental disorders as well, but we can confine ourselves to these two for the moment. Sufferers from both imagine that they see things most people do not see, and the thrill of that exclusive view is what makes it so compelling. The moving picture camera flatters that sense of exclusivity. Everything that it shows us, it has sought out and separated from the torrent of visual experience available to it, a tiny nugget of presumed significance...

I know this is tough but look closely at the cover of Moore's book. It has a heavily doctored or photo doubled picture of a much slimmer Moore. The body is A LOT thinner than the real author's by 100+ pounds. The photo features Mr. Moore's face. It's seems that Mr. Moore has some major issues with his grossly overweight bulk on his book covers....

    Cuba banned Michael Moore's 2007 documentary, Sicko, because it painted such a "mythically" favourable picture of Cuba's healthcare system that the authorities feared it could lead to a "popular backlash", according to US diplomats in Havana. The revelation, contained in a confidential US embassy cable released by WikiLeaks , is surprising, given that the film attempted to discredit the US healthcare system by highlighting what it claimed was the excellence of the Cuban system. But the memo reveals that when the film was shown to a group of Cuban doctors, some became so "disturbed at the blatant misrepresentation of healthcare...

    As Western Journalism reported this week, recent polls indicate a record high number of Americans believe Barack Obama has been a failure as president. A staggering 52 percent of respondents to the Washington Post/ABC poll shared that opinion, with an overwhelming majority of that group ďstronglyĒ agreeing with the sentiment. Of course, about four in 10 believe the Obama administration has been successful, meaning at least a portion of the base that elected him twice remains defensive of his policies. As his second term drags on, however, more and more dyed-in-the-wool leftists are abandoning the increasingly unpopular president. The latest...

    Via Mediaite, another incorrect but defensible bit of speculation a la Chuck Todd that would have drawn indignant sputtering online had it come from a conservative. But yeah, as usual, this guy is clearly wrong. Obama will be remembered for many things ‚ÄĒ putting the country on track towards single-payer health care; getting the left to buy into the surveillance state; declining to make a deal on entitlements before the debt crisis hit; and his most durable achievement, mainstreaming the idea that the president, not Congress, should be the country‚Äôs chief instrument in making policy. The double whammy of...

    I received a note the other day from a social Democrat, who wrote: ďWhen Obama came to power the Dow Jones Industrial Average was 7,900, today it is over 17,000. When he came to power, the Federal Budget deficit was 11% of gross domestic product (GDP), today it is 2.8%. When he came to power, the economy was in a free fall and losing 8 million jobs, today it is growing and all the lost jobs have been recovered. We are poised today to become the greatest energy producer in the world and North America will produce more oil and...

    Donít be hoodwinked by his casual demeanour and capitalism rants Ė Michael Mooreís millions make him one of the richest men in American media. Film-maker Moore, 60, made his name for anti-establishment politics with Capitalism: A Love Story (2009) and Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) Ė accruing a multi-million dollar fortune in the process.

    The divorce between filmmaker Michael Moore and his wife is bringing many details to surface, including that the two own nine homes in New York and Michigan, according to the Detroit News. By reaching a settlement, Moore avoids a trial that could have aired dirty laundry common in high-proile breakups and impugned his long-hewn image as a common man by disclosing details of his comfortable life. His hit movies and best-selling books have begat a lifestyle far from most ballcap-wearing, duck-waddling denizens of Flint. Moore and Glynn own nine properties in Michigan and New York, including a Manhattan condo that...

    Back in 2010, and amid some of the worst economic times of Barack Obamaís failed presidency, I lunched with an entrepreneur whose signage business was booming both domestically and globally. I asked this person how he thrived despite all the political barriers to growth, and he said ďIím way too smart for Obama, and Iíll always work around him.Ē The entrepreneurís confident response came to mind as I watched Dinesh DíSouzaís latest documentary, America: Imagine the World Without Her. DíSouza properly loves the U.S., as does this writer, but his documentaries (the other was 2016: Obamaís America, released to much...
