Fahrenheit Nine Eleven

Dave pointed me to Dave Kopel's Fifty nine deceits in Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 and the summary 4 page pdf of the same thing.

Of course everyone has seen this 'documentary' movie and most seem to think it's amazing or insightful or a 'must see' or whatever yada yada. Except me. Because I'm really loathed to give any money to Michael 'the twat' Moore who I have disliked for all of the time that I have known of him. So yeah, I'm curious to see it but I know I'm going to get very, very annoyed at him and the way he twists the truth to contrive ass-hat points and how he cruelly ridicules people who deserve better. I bought Stupid White Men (an unsophisticated read by any standard) from Oxfam because I'd far rather they got the money than him and fortunately one of my friends has Fahrenheit 9/11 on DVD so I'll borrow that and check it out.

My reason for writing this is that I wondered whether any of you have thoughts on either the movie itself or the '59 deceits' document. Comment away...
