Liberals vs. Michael Moore



Read all about Michael Moore, the puppet, here.


As I had hoped, many liberals, not just Christopher Hitchens, are now seeing that Michael Moore does for liberalism what Ann Coulter and Michael Savage do for conservativism.

Examples:

NPR's Scott Simon: "Michael Moore has won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, and may win an Oscar for the kind of work that got Stephen Glass, Jayson Blair, and Jack Kelly fired."
- "When Punchline Trumps Honesty"
There's more McCarthy than Murrow in the work of Michael Moore.

(There's a great remark about the Scott Simon piece here that also notes that while NPR is certainly leftist, they are nevertheless an invaluable and praiseworthy source of news. I agree.) Alas, as Scott Simon notes, even liberal lions such as the ever confused Paul Krugman are drinking Moore's kool-aide.

A new petition and blog, Democrats United Against Michael Moore: "We firmly believe that, should the Democratic leadership continue to embrace Michael Moore or fail to unequivocally condemn his tactics, it could very well be at the peril of John Kerry in the November election. We must not allow our vehement opposition to President Bush and his policies to blind us from truth. We must not abandon reason in favor of political expediency."
