I suggest that folks actually see a film before presenting review of it – better chance of getting the facts straight. Bravo Michael Moore, for telling the side of the news of 9/11 and all that crashed around it that “journalists” in this country flatly refused to tell.

Millions of us have had to look far and wide for the news that the cowardly mainstream media has refused to offer to the American public, information the majors have done their best to discount. Moore has done a great job of getting much that few dared report, out there, for all to see.

I’ve long resented the perpetuation of spin and fear put forth by corporate media and feel fortunate to have found alternatives to their blatant disregard for journalism long ago. Yet, many folks who rely on Fox for the real deal simply refuse to even take a peek at “Democracy Now!” or Moyers or any other alternative journalistic source courageous enough to bring the hard and real news home to us.

It’s wise that we all seek balance to our informational input. Use your intellect. And see “Fahrenheit 9/11”, then make up your own mind.
