I was just triing to make a tongue in * cheek humorous point there. apparently you didn't laugh at my inuendo * about another style of reporting (aka the Joey Buttafuco story). * * michael k. * Here I go, shunting all attempts to have someone agree with me: Well, I wouldn't go so far as to say that Moore simply "delivered the facts at hand" letting the audience deide who was at fault. A number of other people have made excellent points about truth distortion in documentary filmmaking. I don't think Moore's film is a very good example of this excess, though. I'd say it's somewhere between your assessment and that of Cal's, who referred to it as ambush journalism I believe. And I've tried to avoid anything laced with Buttafouco droppings. I successfully missed all three tv movies. Hey, is that a record--3 movies on the same story on 3 networks in one week? -- Mark Bunster | Hassan Chop! mersh is available!
