I ripped off some hot images from the Namjatown website…I don’t know how, but they’re gonna get integrated around here somehow. Check it out:

    I’m disappointed you didn’t go see it. I posted a bunch of crap about the “inaccuracies” in bowling for columbine before I went to see it, and I was prepared for crap. But it surprised me, and when I looked back on the (quite extensive) articles and news refutations, I realized they were all nitpicking to take away from his main points.

    I read a bit into the long page above, and it feels to me like it’s doing about the same… they’re giving you tree after tree hoping you’ll miss the forest.

    I agree with Hitchens that Moore is the liberal version of Rush. And it’s obviously hypocritical that Moore uses exaggeration and misdirection to get his point across about Bush beguiling the U.S. population with misdirection and exaggerations. But it feels obvious to me that this was Moore’s point from the start. Hitchens is taking the moral high ground, and he’s probably right, but then again, he’s not reaching millions of people at the box office either.

    Yeah, he’s just reaching millions of people in Vanity Fair…LOL…

    I guess the “forest” is “Bush is stupid and I don’t like him.” He is quite successful in transmitting that point, I’ll give him that.

    I think one of his most important points is that there are significant issues, news stories, and points of view that aren’t being shown in the mainstream media.

    Too many people rely on too few pundits who merely spout the agreed upon “talking points”.

    Too few people seek out information on their own to gather the whole story and other points of view.

    For once, something we agree on. That’s very true. In our information-saturated society, too few it seems have the capability to seek and filter information to make decisions…

    Even Fox news, a 24-hour source of propaganda even more misleading and biased than F9/11, recommends that everyone see it:

    “It turns out to be a really brilliant piece of work, and a film that members of all political parties should see without fail. As much as some might try to marginalize this film as a screed against President George Bush, ‘F9/11’
