Hitchens goes after Michael Moore: Unfairenheit 9/11 - The Lies of Michael Moore

<t>Good, so you don't believe Bush either since he is head of the US government. Don't put words into my mouth, will ya? I don't trust politicians period.However, it is only fair to use Bush's standard for truth for anything concerning himself. Agree?Look, I don't care much about Bush. If you want t...

Hitchens goes after Michael Moore: Unfairenheit 9/11 - The Lies of Michael Moore

<t>Moore didn't come up with the 43% number ; the Washington Post came up with that number. Doesn't matter. Importand is that he lied. I'll venture to guess that WP explained what 43% meant.At any rate, Moore's standard for truth is at least as rigorous as that of the US federal government or the Br...

Hitchens goes after Michael Moore: Unfairenheit 9/11 - The Lies of Michael Moore

<t>Where I come from, there's a popular wisdom to the effect that small lies generate a lot of mistrust. I don't know if there's anything substantial there or not and I don't care. Because I won't take a single word from him for gramted and I don't have time or interest to check every single fact. A...

Hitchens goes after Michael Moore: Unfairenheit 9/11 - The Lies of Michael Moore

<t>Again, I don't want to dispute the message. I disagree with the method of delivery that you so aptly characterized. An average person will assume that 43% are on top of weekends and holidays. Therefore it's a blatant lie. If he wanted to be truthful he would've explained what 43% really mean. But...

Hitchens goes after Michael Moore: Unfairenheit 9/11 - The Lies of Michael Moore

<t>QuoteOriginally posted by: EtukaComplaining about Michael Moore's bias simply tells people that you disagree with him. There is really nothing special in the way he chooses facts in a particular way to support his arguments and disregards others that won't. Let's consider an example. Moore says t...

Hitchens goes after Michael Moore: Unfairenheit 9/11 - The Lies of Michael Moore

<t>So why shouldn't a mudslinger have at it? I mean, if you, Energetic, were really pissed off about something and happened to have the hobby of making documentary-quality films, don't you think you might be tempted to make an inflammatory documentary highlighting whatever it is that had you pissed ...

Hitchens goes after Michael Moore: Unfairenheit 9/11 - The Lies of Michael Moore

<t>QuoteOriginally posted by: MarsdenMichael Moore is a polemicist. He is a mud slinger. He aspires to be little more than that. A mudslinger picks up whatever goop is at hand, throws it, and sees if it sticks. He does not concern himself with the possible inconsistency of throwing mutually exclusiv...

Well, at least he's trying to change something.Obviously they won't listen to anybody white. I'm afraid, though, that as far as they're concerned Bill Cosby is about as white as we are
