HYPE

The husband and I watched FahrenHype 9/11 yesterday. I thought it was a very good rebuttal to the Michael Moore movie, and I'm sad that nearly no one in the US will see it. Why can't FahrenHype 9/11 get the theater time that the original did? I personally thought it was better made anyway. The whole time I was watching, I kept wishing that my Swedish friend could see it, since she got treated to Fahrenheit 9/11 on German prime time TV the night before the American election.

I felt the worst for the soldier who lost both of his arms; he had no idea he was in Fahrenheit 9/11. His footage was from an interview conducted with Brian Williams in which he explained what it feels like to lose a limb. His statements had nothing to do with the war or politics, and he certainly wasn't talking to Michael Moore. Moore used the footage without consulting this soldier, which is completely despicable in my eyes. Many of the people in Fahrenheit 9/11 had no idea they were going to be in a Michael Moore movie.

Moore is sneaky and corrupt. I wish more people could see FahrenHype 9/11 so they can get a more balanced view of the truth.

1 I watched it. I rented it on Netflix. Very good rebuttal of F911.

2 Unfortunately, real documentaries don't sell tickets at the box office. A movie theatre owner has to choose between running "Finding Nemo" or "Farenhype 9/11". If you were a business owner, you wouldn't book Farenhype either. Hopefully it does well on video to Mr. Morris can make his money back.

3 A challenge: did Michael Moore lie in the movie?

4 Challenge Collin. Did you take the time to watch Fahrenhype 911? Bet not! Sarah - I purchased the documentary and made many copies and sent to the troops in Iraq. I figured since Moore flooded the zone with F'911 I may as well try to do my part with FHype. I know there were at least 5,000 copies sent by Dick Morris alone who was one of the producers of the documentary.
