Ramirez and Moore in Court of Public Opinion

June 04, 2004

On May 30 (Commentary), editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez has a U.S. couple watching television. The man says: "I'm tired of reality shows. Let's watch something that has nothing to do with reality." Whereupon the woman says, "How about a Michael Moore film?" To heck with Moore. How about a Ramirez cartoon?

I salute Ramirez's cartoon, which humorously informs the too-willing-to-believe liberals about how Moore warps, twists, stretches and slants to distort the truth. Sadly, today, they give awards to propagandists. Moore is a craftsman at misleading the gullible.

Ramirez, who has not seen "Fahrenheit 9/11," refers to "a Michael Moore film" as "something that has nothing to do with reality." Your film critic Manohla Dargis (Calendar, May 30), who has seen "Fahrenheit 9/11," refers to it as "at least on the basis of a single viewing, [a] factually sound critique of George W. Bush's presidency in the wake of 9/11." The defense rests.
