    Documentary-maker and liberal activist Michael Moore said the reason for mass shootings in the United States is largely due to fear and racism, and on Christmas Eve he pleaded, “calm down, white people, and put away your guns.” In a blog post entitled “Celebrating the Prince of Peace in the Land of Guns,” while still calling for stricter gun-control laws, Moore said such laws will not stop mass killings because of “who we are” as a nation. “We are a country whose leaders officially sanction and carry out acts of violence as a means to often an immoral end,” Moore...

    DETROIT — A federal judge Thursday threw out a libel and defamation lawsuit filed against filmmaker Michael Moore by the brother of Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols. U.S. District Court Judge Paul D. Borman ruled that statements Moore made about James Nichols in the 2002 Bowling for Columbine documentary were "factual and substantially true." James Nichols claimed in the lawsuit that the statements could be misinterpreted by viewers to inaccurately link him to the bombing. He also claimed the film invaded his privacy and inflicted emotional distress. Borman rejected the claims in 25-page page ruling granting Moore's request for...

    Already a box office sensation, filmmaker Michael Moore got another loud reception Monday at the Republican convention. This time, it was boos. When Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told the delegates about "a disingenuous film maker who would have us believe that Saddam's Iraq was an oasis of peace," they knew he was referring to the maker of "Fahrenheit 9-11." The film, which savages Bush's Iraq policy, has set a box office record for documentaries, grossing $115 million so far. McCain's comments prompted prolonged booing and chants of "Four more years." Many of the delegates faced Moore, who was seated in...

Moore, who sat in former President Jimmy Carter's box at the convention Monday night, has been welcomed by wildly enthusiastic audiences at his appearances...

    LA Times ^ | June 11 2004 | Michael Finnegan, Times Staff Writer
    Film and Election Politics Cross in 'Fahrenheit 9/11' The marketing of a scathing movie about Bush resembles a race for the White House. There are movie campaigns and there are presidential campaigns, and usually you can tell the difference. One features a red carpet, the other a war room. But "Fahrenheit 9/11," Michael Moore's scathing new documentary about President Bush, has both. Its release later this month appears to mark the first time that a film slamming a major presidential candidate has opened on screens across the nation in the final months of a campaign. At the same time, the...

    Controversial director Michael Moore says big names like Meryl Streep and Martin Scorsese supported his outburst at the 2003 Academy Awards. The Fahrenheit 9/11 film-maker took to the stage at the glitzy ceremony to accept the award for his acclaimed movie Bowling For Columbine, and proceeded to call shame on President George W. Bush's war on Iraq. But, while the media insisted many were infuriated by Moore's speech, the documentary maestro insists he was sent letters of support by many Hollywood 'A' listers - including Jeff Bridges and Jonathan Demme. Moore says, "Some complained about it on TV - James...

    Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" is designed to promote his personal political agenda. On CNN, he said he hoped the movie would get out the anti-Bush vote. Did Moore give even lip service to views opposite his own? You reported on the reception his film received in Cannes. Given the location, France, and the crowd, journalists, Hollywood movie types and Frenchmen mostly, what did you expect? By praising an obviously politically motivated film, are you simply being a pawn of Moore's own political agenda? Mark Pachankis, Shreveport, La. A. Well of course it's a politically motivated film.

"We were dealing with reels of film, not politics," said jury president Quentin Tarantino. "We all agreed that 'Fahrenheit 9/11' was the best film." Tarantino and his eight fellow jurors were breaking with 56 years of festival tradition by explaining and defending their selections at a press conference the day after the awards were named.

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The White House calls the film "outrageously false," but Hollywood is hot for "Fahrenheit 9/11," documentary filmmaker Michael Moore's caustic broadside at President Bush. A day after the film won the top Palme d'Or prize at the Cannes Film Festival in France, industry observers on Sunday predicted the controversial movie would be a box office hit, even if some early reviews have hardly been favorable. "I think it will be hugely successful," said D.A. Pennebaker, veteran documentary director whose films include the Oscar-nominated 1992 election campaign saga "The War Room."

Election experts are skeptical about films' ability to impact the outcome of a race, but they say these movies do have the potential to rile voters and help mold debates.

In the Moore version, President Bush, his father and members of their circle have received $1.5 billion from Saudi Arabia over the years, attacked Iraq to draw attention from their Saudi friends, and have lost the hearts and minds of many of the U.S. servicemen in the war.

On Saturday, award-winning film director and progressive liberal Michael Moore gave a sold-out speech at the University’s Sports Pavilion. Interestingly, amid sympathizing with University strikers and the many victims of President George W. Bush’s doctrine, Moore showed little sympathy for diametrically opposed Rush Limbaugh and his admitted drug problem. In the press conference held before his speech, Moore addressed a question about Limbaugh’s admitted addiction by saying Limbaugh was an “ugly, mean-spirited bastard” who was the “leading hate...

The newspaper quoted a source as saying that when Gibson found out about it, "he didn't want any part of it. He figured he had enough...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS.MW) - This time there was no mistaking it - the chorus of boos wasn't aimed at the boo-ers. The same boisterous lot that made Michael Moore one of the most "searched for" names on the Internet after the Academy Awards was back at it Monday when the Drudge Report said Disney would fund Moore's new anti-George Bush documentary. While virtual chants of "Eisner hates America" and "Boycott all Disney products" reached comical proportions, some people actually tried to maintain some sanity. AnnAkronism was NOT one of those people: "Why would a company who supposedly wants to attract...

And what difference does it make if it is to be released just prior to the election if Bush and his cronies have nothing to hide? My only complaint about Moore's video is that it is not covering the right topic. It should be a...
