Wrong-O?? I wonder if you or Stossel ever took the time to investigate the facts that you and him claim Moore is wrong on? Well, since I know neither of you have, and for those who do not care enough about the problem to be diligent in knowing more about the complete story, you can read what CNN did. CNN took the time to fact checked Sicko. I wonder what was the results of this fact checking endeavor? Well interesting to say, CNN found that Moore's facts were accurate, and that the difference in what they found, and that everything he stated were close to what they found. Now the difference could be the sources each used to look up their information. Yeah I know that thing called facts and sources that I know those on the Right are allergic too. But CNN's analysis of Moore film overwhelmingly support many of his claims.

To add insult to injury, even Fox News (no lover of Michael Moore) found his movie good. Here is a small glimpse of what Fox News said about the movie:

" Filmmaker Michael Moore's brilliant and uplifting new documentary, "Sicko," deals with the failings of the U.S. healthcare system, both real and perceived. But this time around, the controversial documentarian seems to be letting the subject matter do the talking, and in the process shows a new maturity.

Unlike many of his previous films ("Roger and Me," "Bowling for Columbine," "Fahrenheit 9-11"), "Sicko" works because in this one there are no confrontations. Moore smartly lets very articulate average Americans tell their personal horror stories at the hands of insurance companies. The film never talks down or baits the audience."

As someone who has seen the movie, I can only say the movie moved me. There were parts that brought me almost to tears, and the experience I saw that came after the movie was the most important thing. It was in the lobby were people walking out of the movie were have discussions about what they have just seen. The movie brought about a conversations and thinking about a problem that all too many Americans have experienced or know someone who has experienced it.

Nice stuff... tough to keep track of all that is happening. I end up reading 100 odd blogs daily. Plus there is news. You could also enrich your blog by adding current news on your blog... try out the news widget from widgetmate.com

You gotta be kidding me. You're trusting John Stossel's word on Michael Moore? Stossel? The guy who got caught red-handed fabricating a report on the "hazards" of organic food? A guy who fires producers when their research doesn't match up with whatever he's shilling at the time? Who tried telling us that Chromium-6 wasn't all that dangerous..but still wouldn't drink the water Erin Brockovitch put in front of him.

The guys a proven liar and shill artist. Listing him as a authority on honesty is laughable.

LOL, I could not agree with you more Shannon. But the key point is not the credibility of Stossel, it is the message that he brings that gets highlighted. As I already stated, the facts that Moore's used have been fact checked and found pretty much on point. But that gets no notice here. What gets highlighted is John Stossel's critique which as you have noted is not trustworthy, in the past been proven bias, and could be labeled as Wrong-O.
