5. Timed for New Hampshire?

Iowa, perhaps?

Doesn't matter. The topic is of universal import.

7. Another ''documentary" with lots of footage of Moore?

And is deceptively edited?

Moore has good ideas, but he needs lessons in better film-making.

9. Well, he did win an Academy Award and a Palme d'Or

I've learned from his films.

10. "Rocky" beat "Network" for the Oscar.

An Oscar doesn't automatically make a documentary accurate.

If you want an example of how to make a good documentary, watch "Hearts And Minds."

If you want a bad one, look at James O'Keefe's "work."

13. I saw "The Power Of Nightmares."

It's too bad Michael Moore couldn't be as honest as this other guy is.

As to box office, that is meaningless when it comes to accuracy.

Which sells more, US News And World Report, or the National Enquirer?

When Moore put out that piece of garbage "Bowling For Columbine," he damaged his reputation big time.

How accurate was his last one?

For that matter, his last one was "Fahrenheit 9-11," right?

15. I think your way off base but I understand the sentiment.

I genuinely feel all of Michael Moore's work combined contains less untruths than about 10 minutes of any network news station.

Welcome back, Michael Moore!

Give 'em hell!

17. I wonder if this includes the not-so-hidden war on the American people?

I think he touched upon this in Bowling for Columbine and Capitalism: a Love Story.
