Jon at netcynic posted a nice essay with his response to viewing Fahrenheit 9/11: it's entertaining propaganda.
Ironically, Mr. Moore uses the same tactics in his anti-Bush film that he (and I) have attcked Mr. Bush for using. In the film I detected no outright lies, but Mr. Moore, just as Mr. Bush did, insinuates falsehoods without directly stating them.
I still haven't seen the film. I guess I need to make some room on my hard drive and download it, if only to find out whether it's as inaccurate, manipulative, and generally devoid of intelligence as Moore's last film, Bowling for Columbine. (For the record, I did enjoy Roger and Me, despite generally disagreeing with much of Moore's politics.)
