Moore lies

Remember when Michael Moore was crowing about how well his film was doing, even in the red states? I was really disturbed by that because it seemed to show that people were interested in going to see anti-Bush propaganda. Most people don't go out of their way to go see propaganda that bashes someone they intend to vote for. And fewer people are interested in giving money to someone who bashes the man they intend to vote for.

It turns out that Moore was lying (link from Roscoe).

Why did I believe a man on one topic when I know he is a deliberate deceiver on other topics? This is how liars can keep lying and keep getting away with it: most people just expect you to tell the truth, even when they know you are a liar.
