1. F911 may have helped Bush because it was basically a
very weak political piece. No serious arguments can be won by stringing together series of anecdotal opinions. The sum total of the movie was that Bush wasn't too smart and that big business is greedy and ruthless.


The realities of our political situation are much graver than one would have gathered from viewing F911. The movie almost trivialized the true nature of the sinister, gangster cabal that is running the country. The difficult thing about outing the crooks is that they have almost total control of the power levers. We need irrefutable evidence of their criminal behavior, something that couldn't be spun away. And, I realize that M. Moore probably did the best he could with what he had.
