Time magazine has interviewed Michael Moore in anticipation of his next film, Sicko, which reportedly takes aim at the U.S. health care system. (HT: Drudge.) The interview is a run-of-the-mill Q&A that's basically a yawner until Moore lets out some pure hilarity.
TIME: Do you think people will accuse the movie of inaccuracy?MOORE: I offered $10,000 to anybody who could find a single fact in Fahrenheit 9/11 that was wrong. TIME: Have you had to pay anything?MOORE: No, of course not. Every fact in my films is true. And yet how often do I have to read over and over again about supposed falsehoods? The opinions in the film are mine. They may not be true, but I think they are.
Good grief. "Every fact in my films is true"? Not even close. An entire industry has practically erupted in debunking Moore's films.Fahrenheit 9/11? Debunked:
