I used to like Micheal Moore too then I got older and wiser. When I saw "Bowling for Columbine" which is touted as a gun control movie, that isn't what I saw: it was a film favoring responsible gun use with a responsible media, Moore fell flat on his face and no one seemed to notice.In the interests of full disclosure and fairness, I have watched many of Mooreís films and I did used to really like him. At this point, Iíve been liking him less and less. Every time he makes a cogent point, he buries in a pile of crap that dilutes its impact or he chooses ways to demonstrate problems and ideas that really turn people off unless they already agree with him. Universal healthcare is an easy sell idea; itís feasible, itís cheaper than our current system, itís more effective, virtually every other first-world country in the world has opted to go with it, healthcare in America is a train wreck and everybody knows it. Except Moore took such a ham-handed approach to presenting the idea in Sicko that it really made me, an ardent supporter of universal healthcare, cringe. While I may agree with some of his positions and I applaud his stated goals, I canít stand his method of presentation and his behavior because it reflects badly on what he and others are trying to do.
Moore is currently a rich man exploiting workers to make sure he get's to keep being a rich man so maybe that's why he's slipped a bit.
