See the Movie, Start the Revolution

…a letter from Michael Moore

Friends,

I am overwhelmed by the response to “Sicko.” And I’m not just talking about all the wonderful, heart-felt letters you’ve sent me and the stories you’ve shared with me about the abuse you’ve suffered from our health care system.

No, I’m talking about how thousands of you are taking matters into your own hands and using the movie to do something.

Sicko Reality

CNN Gets Blitzed by Michael Moore
“Just apologize to the American people and to the families of the troops for not doing your job four years ago. We wouldn’t be in this war if you had done your job. Come on. Just admit it. Just apologize to the American people.” — Michael Moore, live on The Situation Room
‘SiCKO’ Truth Squad Sets the Record Straight: CNN vs. THE FACTS

“If we get that confirmed, obviously, we’ll correct the record.” — Wolf Blitzer, live on The Situation Room

‘Fahrenheit 9/11′ is Right (VIDEO) – Douglas Brinkley, U.S. Historian and director of the Theodore Roosevelt Center for American Civilization

Demand an apology from CNN for Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s biased report on ‘SiCKO’ and for helping the Bush administration lie us into a pointless war.

Sicko Spurs Audiences Into Action

Sicko started; the stereotypical Texas guy sat down behind me and never stopped talking. He talked through the entire movie… and I listened. The first ten to twenty minutes of the film he spent badmouthing Moore to his wife and snorting in disgust whenever MM went into one of his trademark monologues. But as the movie wore on his protestations became quieter, less enthusiastic. Somewhere along the way, maybe at the half way point, right before my ears, Sicko changed this man’s mind. By the forty-five minute mark, he, along with the rest of the audience were breaking into spontaneous applause. He stopped pooh-poohing the movie and started shouting out “hell yeah!” at the screen. It was as if the whole world had been flipped upside down. This is Texas, where people support the president and voting democratic is something only done by the terrorists. Michael Moore should be public enemy number one.

Go See Sicko In The Theater

Or here if you’ve spent all your money on health care costs.

It’s absolutely brilliant. Please see it.

MICHAEL MOORE:

Well, I don’t agree with the copyright laws and I don’t have a problem with people downloading the movie and sharing it with people. As long they’re not doing it to make a profit off it, as long as they’re not, you know, trying to make a profit off my labor. I would oppose that. But um, you know I do quite well and I um…I don’t know, I make these books and movies and TV shows because I want things to change, so the more people that get to see them the better, and um, so I’m, I’m happy when that happens, OK? Should I not be happy I don’t know? It’s like if a friend of yours has the DVD of my movie, gave it to you to watch one night, is that person doing something wrong? I’m not seeing any money from that. But he’s just handing the DVD to you so that you can watch my movie. A DVD that he bought, but you’re not buying it, yet you’re watching it without paying me any money. See I think that’s OK, and it’s always been OK, we share things with people. And I think information and art, ideas
should be shared.

Filmmaker rides to rescue of nemesis out to discredit him

It’s not easy being a nemesis. Particularly if your opponent is Michael Moore.

Jim Kenefick has spent years trying to expose the documentary maker’s “deceptions and half-truths” through his website, Moorewatch.com, under the mantra: “Watching Michael Moore’s every move.” What he hadn’t counted on was that Moore would turn out to be his anonymous guardian angel, coming to his financial rescue with a cheque for $12,000 (£6,000).

The saga began last year when Mr Kenefick was struggling to pay for healthcare for his wife, who was recovering from a neurological disorder and had no medical insurance. Mr Kenefick, whose site is one of the most popular anti-Moore blogs, in desperation posted a note in which he pleaded for advice in words which he may live to regret: “If you can help, I will be in your debt for all of time.”
