Engaging ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’

I find it interesting that the most fervent critics of the movie “Fahrenheit 9/11” seem more obsessed with attacking Michael Moore than in taking on the points he makes in his film.

Moore’s film offers a dramatic and unapologetic critique of Bush and his administration. But the facts that serve as the basis for Moore’s critique have yet to be disputed. In fact, most, if not all, of the claims he makes are well-known and part of the public record.

If people think the case Moore makes is flawed, then they should debate the merits of that case. The failure of many right-wing critics to do so makes me wonder if they’re more interested in playing politics than engaging in a genuine debate about the issues the film raises.
