Love Letters From Michael Moore

Michael Moore has a knack for pushing people's buttons. Not just one, but like 10 or 20 of them at a time. While I don't always agree with his opinion, he doesn't mind asking the tough questions that many journalists avoid, and he is absolutely relentless when an answer doesn't satisfy him.

After CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta used some inaccurate information regarding Moore's new film "Sicko" that's when the train came off the tracks. A few days later during an interview on The Situation Room I honestly thought Moore was going to rip off Wolf Blitzer's head and use it as a hat, demanding retractions and apologies for their alleged misinformation. Dr. Gupta fared no better the next day as he became Moore's life-size whack-a-mole for the next half hour.

A week later and still no apology or statement corrections for Mr. Moore. That's when he decided to unleash verbal napalm on the CNN office.


I will say that I agree with Moore on most of his points this time around...and it evoked such a visceral reaction that even I wanted to choke the life out of him after reading this biting missive. I'm convinced that were I holding Moore's masterfully crafted paper in my hands it would actually burst into flames while reading it.

This letter is a perfect example of how manipulative and calculating Mr. Moore can be when provoked. I sincerely believe this man could sell ice to Eskimos...speaking of which, I'd say Blitzer and Gupta need some for the charred remains of their backsides right about now.
