We will never have true civilization until we have learned to recognize the rights of others. — Will Rogers

Michael Moore is Still an Ass 2004.05.07.01:59

Has anyone actually seen Michael Moore and Rush Limbaugh in the same room at the same time? Because I'm beginning to think that the only "vast conspiracy" is coming from idiots like those, who try to leverage their notoriety into convincing the rest of the world that they are actually at all representative of people's views. Rather, I think both are gassy wind-bags who do more for the opposite political side as the one they profess to believe in.

Less than 24 hours after accusing the Walt Disney Company of pulling the plug on his latest documentary in a blatant attempt at political censorship, the rabble-rousing film-maker Michael Moore has admitted he knew a year ago that Disney had no intention of distributing it.

Granted, this doesn't mean that his "understanding" wasn't based on the same set of data– this being an election year, Disney CEO being a big GOP supporter, etc.– but he clearly has been whining far beyound any right he has to be. And because of crap like this, and the "creative editing" he employed in Bowling for Columbine, I don't know if it will be worth going to see the new one, since I won't know how much is fact or fiction. Because if I want fiction, I can find much, much more entertaining cinema to see in the months ahead.
