FYI..... He went to a state sponsored course for new coroners. He meets all minimum requirements.

I can only speak to Fahrenheit 911, as I couldn't sit through any others of his movies.
Your line: "I've read the statistics. Moore was shining a light on some of the very dark shadows in our health care system."
Again, he might have been doing just that.... and showing them to us through his point of view.........
Sometimes qualifications and education can come from other area's than a classroom and diploma hanging on a wall.
By the way..... You again are not looking at my statements, It was not about the quality of Moore's film, and/or the quality of this movie. It was the fact that there is a double standard in what is perceived as acceptable to show here in WW.
And please don't insult us and tell us your statements were based of quality content of the movie only. It had to do with the type of content too..........
Actually, the censorship issue came from two posts.... One of yours as well as a post(s) by PeggyJoy.
Your post: "It is somewhat embarrassing to live in a town with limited screens, where the theater management would look at the demographics and say, "Yeah, I think we might make some money on this one here."
The statement by PeggyJoy: "The citizens of Walla Walla should feel insulted by having the film shown there. "
I take this to mean.... If certain people do not like a movie or it's content... it should not be shown here in WW.
My take on this theory?.... Ok, here is a example of what it sounds like PeggyJoy is getting at: lets say I don't like Star Wars, so I don't want WW to show it? That is censorship!
You may be correct... This certainly will be a interesting time in politics....
Again my point is..... You may treat it like fiction.... but we have no right to try to sensor it! People have to do that for themselves.
And you think Moore's movies was a good piece of Art? I too have heard about movies that are rank and stink..... Yet, some people think they are worth seeing....
My point was.... It is a persons (writer/directors) point of view!
Just as the Fahrenheit 9/11 was one persons (Michael Moore) point of view! It could be (and it was) said the Moore's movie was also partisan, stunk and spewed lies. (Albeit mostly from the right)
There was no deflection here, as I see it, no one has the right to sensor others for speech and movies. So, there are choices. If you don't like a song on a radio, change the channel, or shut it off. If you hear of a bad movie.... by all means don't go! It is your/our choice what we expose ourselves to. Eventually the movie will flounder and go away, or it could flourish and be a success, and obviously that scares some people..... As they want to take the choices away from us... ALL of us! If the left is scared to let others make up their own minds... Wow...
Time will tell if this is going to follow the Moore movie into history.
Does anybody remember all of the hoopla over the Michael Moore's movie called ...... Fahrenheit 9/11 a few years ago? It was one of the most talked about and hashed over movies in recent history....
Liberals loved it. And in some circles it got great reviews. it also got terrible reviews from the right. It was right down party lines.....
Hmmm, does this sound familiar? Ever think that this is the same thing?
It seems to be what's good for the goose, is good for the gander!
