Incredible columnist

Without seeing Mr. Moore’s film, Mr. Ackerman calls it a “fairy tale.” Reading the publisher’s opinion was very painful to me, but I wanted to form my view of him upon his actual writings.

I conclude that the publisher has insulted my intelligence. He sounds like an unthinking puppet of the party that wants us to believe the film is “fiction.” Any columnist who can get more “worked up” over a film than over the causes and consequences of the war in Iraq is, by definition, incredible.

Please balance Ackerman’s uninformed opinions with an article listing all the factual accurancies and factual inaccuracies in the film. I forgive Moore and Ackerman for getting carried away in presenting their opinons – but I do not forgive ignorance, sloppy research and misrepresentation of facts by anyone – especially publishers.
