More people weighing in against Moore

It's really no surprise that Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Wild Banshee and Jason Kline are documenting problems with Fahrenheit 9/11. But, it's not just the clarion voices on the right who are decrying this film anymore. The truth about this film is finally spreading to the mainstream media.

Left-wing columnist, Richard Cohen, of the Washington Post titled his July 1 column Baloney, Moore or Less. There is some pretty funny stuff in this piece. But, the long and the short of it is that Cohen thinks Moore's movie is so ridiculous that it actually hurts the great cause of removing Bush from office. Frankly, I am surprised that more Democrats, particularly John Kerry, aren't trying harder to distance themselves from the lunatic left as Cohen recommends.

Michael Isikoff of of New MSNBC also used his column space yesterday to dismantle the "factual" assertions of Moore's film.

And possibly most surprisingly of all, Bush-attacker and key "source" for the Moore film, Richard Clarke, wrote his own rebuttle.

So, after all of this, I consider the discussion as to whether Moore's film contains lies to be closed. It contains lies. It just does. You can hate Bush. You can love the film. But no educated person can seriously defend the truthfulness of Moore's assertions.
