And they wonder why people avoid posting threads in General Chat? :rolleyes:

Very well I shall attempt a vaguely sensible answer.
I don't think he's become more radical. Possibly more "relevant" and I use that term loosely. TV Nation, Bowling for Columbine and probably even Downsize This were mainly to do with underlying issues that had been going on for a while. Once Bush got elected he had very relevant cannon fodder, and his work reflects that. His work also has a bit more focus, probably because it's more relevant.

if you mean, has he tried to produce more extreme and more compounding attacks on the administration then yes, it is clear from his work that he has lost the detail that populated his early material. in trying to create a broader and more specific hatred of the administration, he has unfortunately suffered in accuracy and almost become content with a certain sloppiness in accusation. he was a fresh,motivated, if simplistic, radical from the outset, now he is just a slanderous couch potato.

Couch potato? How would you know if he is a couch potato?
He certainly seems to get around a lot. Been reading his column on his experiences at the RNC. Quite good actually.
I wouldn't say he's lacking details compared to his previous works. I remember reading Downsize This and thinking it by far the weakest of his books. Dude Where's My Country seems a lot better on the details, although neither reads as well as Stupid White Men.

The guy's plainly a fatass


<standard rant>
farenheit 911 thats a travesty, what makes the guy so irksome is that, yes there are genuine cases to be made - but he goes and messes it all up by making stuff up, bringing in half truths and saying things in a misleading way. All this while laughing his way to the bank. what a moron

To be frank, I don't think his being "a fatass" has anything to do with what he's saying.

Yes, his stuff is propaganda, but he raises some important points that people wouldn't hear about otherwise. Somebody has to question the administration to make sure they're acting in the interests of the electorate.

His points are often crude and I find his personal vendetta against GWB rather tiring. There are points to be made and I commend him for bringing some important ideas to the public but he is still effectively a liberal.

Is being a liberal a bad thing then?

And there are plenty of people in the world who hate Dubya.

Quite a few do, and arent wrong in doing it. just think about what he says in 911,

that the binladens finance bush + friends. Then for some reason decide to blow them up??! what and then bush is protecting them, and no1 has worked that out.

Thats ignoring the blaring mistruths. so i think im justified in saying, can it the man is a an arse

Being overweight does not mean you're a couch potato.

As I said, he uses a lot of propaganda. I also think you're oversimplifying F9/11. But we're digressing from the topic aren't we?

I like michael moore, his farenheit was an attack on the bush administration. Bowling for columbine was good too. His books, both of which i have read, stupid white men & Dude, wheres my country, were good too. I dont think he's gotten radical. He's outspoken, and he uses humour to highlight his point - which is what makes him different from the likes of John Pilger. I love the guy God bless him.

And i would urge any intellectually/broad minded person to look into his works. As for those who know nothing better than to resort to personal attacks, get an education & Grow up. :rolleyes:
