Ajax,First, allow me to compliment you on your erudite screen name.I have been following Michael Moore since his days on 'The Awful Truth'. Fahrenheit 9-11 isn't, properly speaking, a documentary; it's a work of political fantasy. However, that doesn't take anything away from the fact that the director is an extremely skilled propagandist. Furthermore, you are correct that it is challenging to find factual errors in his propaganda, but that is because his technique is simply to suggest falsehoods to the viewer by putting together a carefully crafted patchwork of footage that is extraordinarily misleading. In that respect, there is plenty that is "wrong" with Fahrenheit 9-11. If you are interested in specific criticisms of the movie, I suggest you peruse the following article:http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5335853/site/newsweek/Note that this was penned by mainstream journalists, not deranged right-wing bloggers.Again, I don't wish to be unfair to Michael Moore; after all, he is an excellent resource for conspiracy theorists.
