Michael Moore :


Greatest American ??


Recently, The Discovery Channel began a summer series called "Greatest American" , in which viewers were asked to pick out the" 100 greatest Americans " in history.


Most of the candidates were people one might expect: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, the Wright Brothers, Dr. Martin Luther King, the indomitable Rosa Parks – but Michael Jackson ?Malcolm X ? Michael Moore ?


Michael Moore is "notable", I guess.


Only Moore can boast of having made what amounted to a multi-million dollar (in-kind) campaign contribution , to a Presidential campaign : the failed John Kerry bid of 2004 – without attracting FEC oversight or scrutiny.


I refer,of course to his vicious anti-Bush film : Fahrenheit 911.


The film , you see , was a profit-making venture – and it made the well-to-do Michael Moore no small amount of money.


One would think Moore would be admired by billionaire George Soros – who is reported to have spent $23,000,000.
in a vain attempt to elect John Kerry.


Not so. Soros denounced Moore for "misleading and unethical tactics", adding : " I am not a fan of Michael Moore."


So who does love Michael ?


Greg Palast, apparently.


Greg , the "Eminence Grise" of Left Wing Journalism discloses he did the "background investigation" that Michael Moore used in Fahrenheit 911.


I rather thought Moore’s work had that " Palast touch " !


Michael Moore, Great American ?


Cut us a break !!!
