I do not agree with this. Why do you think Michael Moore is unethical? And I am assuming you are talking about his documentary "Fahrenheit 911." I'm not talking specifically about F 911. I'm talking about the way he plays fast and loose with the facts in all his "documentaries" for dramatic effect. When confronted, he said something along the lines of "hey, I'm an entertainer". For this reason, I avoided seeing all of Moore's movies starting with "Roger and Me". But I did finally go out to see Farenheit 911 out of a desire for cultural literacy. The sad thing about that film is he could have stuck scrupulously to the facts and still had a phenomenally powerful film. But he didn't. The number of falsehoods in that movie is far fewer than what is claimed by opponents, but there are still enough to bring the whole movie under a cloud in my opinion. (I formed this conclusion after going through the sites debunking the movie, and the sites debunking the sites debunking the movie).Gordon6
