Michael Moore

I detest Michael Moore. I admit that I saw Bowling for Columbine last year (with Brian), but I'm proud to say that neither of us was taken in by it. Rather, we left feeling manipulated and frustrated. I think the idea with that movie was you go in, sit down, watch, and let the anger sorta sweep over you. Then, in theory, you leave, angry at Republicans, the media, gun owners, big business (and pretty much any other conservative constituency). What a stupid movie...

Anyway, Volokh links to this site detailing some of the factual inaccuracies in Bowling for Columbine. See here. I haven't fact-checked the author's assertions, but he does a good job at least showing how manipulative the movie is. You can read more of the stuff about Moore here.
