    Atlantic photographer and her 'McCain Derangement Syndrome'Rick Moran September 15, 2008 This is an incredible story that pulls back the curtain on the media in a way that has never been done before. Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic Monthly wrote a very unflattering portrait of John McCain for the publication. To take the picture of McCain for the piece, the Atlantic hired Jill Greenberg, a free lance photographer. The controversy arose when Greenberg informed her blog readers that she actually tried to take pictures of McCain in the most unflattering light possible. The New York Post has the story: "Greenberg...

    Obamapalooza: LIVE THREAD (Greek Temple Coronation, Fireworks, and 80,000 Fans) Survey Poll: Which feature of tonight's Greek Temple coronation will really jump the shark and send the Obama cult over the top in silliness and grandiosity? The hydraulic elevation of the candidate to the podium , the fireworks and flashpots, the 80,000 hypnotized, screaming fans, or the rock concert soundtrack? About the only things missing will be Hannah Montana, Elvis, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones strutting down the runway with "the One" as the crowd boogies to the groove of Obamamania. When it's over, will the 80,000 faithful pull...

    Michael Moore insists he will arrange a television programme for the night before the US election, after a planned showing of Fahrenheit 9/11 was cancelled. Meanwhile an anti-Moore documentary has come under fire for allegedly misrepresenting one of its interviewees. In Demand, a US cable channel, had been planning a Michael Moore Election Eve Special, including a screening of Fahrenheit 9/11 and interviews with anti-Bush celebrities. Citing "legitimate legal and business concerns", In Demand has now cancelled the show. Characteristically, Moore told the AP news agencies that In Demand had bowed to pressure from "top Republicans". "Apparently people have put...
  • The start of history (for information - don't think I endorse this!)

    The Age (Melbourne) ^ | 30th August 2004 | John Berger
    Michael Moore's much-disparaged film could actually change the course of civilisation, writes John Berger. Fahrenheit 9/11 is astounding. Not so much as a film - although it is cunning and moving - but as an event. Most commentators try to dismiss the event and disparage the film. Let's explore why. The artists on the Cannes film festival jury apparently voted unanimously to award Michael Moore's film the Palme d'Or. Since then it has touched many millions across the world. In the United States, its box-office takings for the first six weeks amounted to more than $US100 million ($A142 million), which...

When she learned I'd not seen the movie, she had a cause: get me to attend with her and a crowd of her Democrat club buddies. In fact, her local theatre booked the movie because Mom touted it to them.</p>

    WARSAW, Poland - "Fahrenheit 9/11" opened Friday in Poland - a U.S. ally in Iraq - with some critics comparing director Michael Moore's style to totalitarian propaganda. But politicians who opposed Poland's decision to send troops to Iraq urged the public to see the film. Moore's movie portrays President Bush as inept and the war in Iraq as an illegitimate campaign waged to further business interests. A critic for Gazeta Wyborcza, Poland's largest daily newspaper, condemned the movie as a "foul pamphlet" too biased to be considered a documentary and said it reminded him of methods used by Nazi propaganda...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A recent broadcast on Cuban television of Michael Moore's film "Fahrenheit 9/11" has raised questions about the Oscar eligibility of one of America's most talked-about and critically acclaimed movies of the year. Under Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (news - web sites) rules, films are disqualified from competing in the Oscar race for best documentary if shown on television or on the Internet within nine months of their theatrical release. However, an unauthorized or pirated display of a film would not render the movie ineligible, academy spokesman John Pavlik said on Tuesday. "If somebody...

    Scenes in Fahrenheit 911 of U.S. soldiers taunting and sexually humiliating Iraqi civilians following the successful invasion were shot by Urban Hamid, an embedded Swedish-Iraqi journalist who is presently a doctoral candidate at the University of Colorado, the university's student newspaper Camera disclosed today (Tuesday). Moore has declined to respond to questions from interviewers about whether he resorted to subterfuge in order to embed photographers among U.S. forces and has been criticized for not showing footage of the abuses to U.S. military authorities earlier. But Camera reported that the controversial footage by Hamid was actually shown at a theater in...

    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...

    CONSIDERING THAT I'm writing this from inside the bunker of what many regard as the Alliance of Neocon Warmongers, it bears mentioning that Michael Moore and I have one surprising trait in common: We both believe that the war in Iraq was ill-advised, ill-planned, and ill-executed, an apparent failure bordering on unmitigated disaster, that was never in our best national interest. Around our office over the last two years, I've made these arguments to colleagues, open-minded types who, after they put me through my water-boarding/naked pyramid sessions, say they'll take it under advisement. And I make the disclosure now so...

    CANNES AND THE HYENAS’ FESTIVAL By: Jesús J. Chao 5/25/04 Michael Moore brought to their feet the adoring European elites with his accustomed diatribes, defamations and wild attacks against President Bush and the American traditions and values. The jubilant reaction of the privileged European and Hollywood elites in attendance to the Festival, says more about their own values than the alleged merits of Moore’s documentary. Accordingly, he received the longest standing ovation ever at the Cannes Festival, an spectacle bordering on collective hysteria. What makes it more loathsome, is that the French would be speaking German today if Americans had...

    Friends, I have never seen a head so far up a Presidential ass (pardon my Falluja) than the one I saw last night at the "news conference" given by George W. Bush. He's still talking about finding "weapons of mass destruction" -- this time on Saddam's "turkey farm." Turkey indeed. Clearly the White House believes there are enough idiots in the 17 swing states who will buy this. I think they are in for a rude awakening. I've been holed up for weeks in the editing room finishing my film ("Fahrenheit 911"). That's why you haven't heard from me lately....
