...called "Capitalism: A Love Story," and I really don't expect to run out and see it anytime soon. I saw "Roger & Me" and "Fahrenheit 9/11" and they both played fast and loose with the truth. Moore reminds me a little of Oliver Stone in that he makes movies that are entertaining but not particularly edifying. As an opponent of the Iraq War, I found "Fahrenheit 9/11" counterproductive because its distortions were not helpful to the anti-war cause. We had the facts on our side; we didn't need lies or misinformation to make our case. The movie only hurt our credibility. To paraphrase Jed Clampett, "Quit helpin' us, boy."
Moore appeared this week on "Larry King Live" and "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" to plug his new movie and I can only conclude that he is just plain misinformed. (Does he really think that the banks set out to take people's homes?) He seems well-intentioned, but I would urge anyone to take anything he says with a large grain of salt.
