MORE HONEST THAN JENNINGS ANYWAY:

Framing Michael Moore: What do Bill Clinton, John Kerry and Michael Moore have in common? They have all fallen victim to Michael Isikoff’s poison pen. (Joel Bleifuss, June 24, 2004, In These Times)

Yes, Fahrenheit 9/11 is propaganda, in the same way the nightly news is, or the front page of your daily paper. It’s just that Moore is more upfront with the point he is trying to make.

No argument there.

Well, he's upfront about his point. But he's admitted under oath in federal court it's OK to mangle the truth in order to get to a "higher truth" as a final objective -- the "higher truth" of course being the one Moore thinks is correct.

Kind of like the goal of the French Revolution, "The Republic of Perfect Virtue" that justified any evil whatsoever to bring it about?

Like Star Trek's Federation just on the other side of The Regrettable but Necessary Killing Fields...
