Manufacturing Dissent is a topical documentary seeking to separate fact, fiction, and legend. It chronicles Michael Moore on tour during the promotion of Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004), all while exploring the politically charged climate in America that has prompted Moore's ascension from documentary filmmaker to icon of the political left.Written by
If you won't tell the truth because it's bad for the cause then the cause becomes a fiction, which is exactly what's happened. It's happened with the Left in the United States as a whole and it's happened with Michael Moore.

Best of luck to all! Good to see someone lashing back at "spin".
Back in 2000, while on a lecture circuit in Boston's North Shore area, I was telling audiences about a few concepts I had: "Mandatory Mininmum Health Insurance" and "Merit-Rated Health Insurance Premiums" based on lifestyle and other factors. I was laughed at! Now the Mandatory Minimum Health Insurance is law in Massachusetts, and, some corporations have recently started charging employees more for heath insurance for being unhealthy and obese, like Mr. Moore, who ironically denigrates the health care system for being "unhealthy"! Not so shocking when you think about it. The majority of people like Mr. Moore, value, have the time, money and desire for, the new styles, new vehicle, movies, sports games, entertainment, new furniture, manicures, hair styles, new gadgets, vacations, lottery tickets, casinos, lunches and diners out all week, and on and on. But when it comes to valuing, spending time, effort and money on regular exercise, proper nutrition, nutritional supplements, relaxation and meditation time, preventive health practices, and maintaining healthy lifestyles, the only things people always seem to have are excuses for why they 'can't' or 'don't'.
Namaste, Dr Dave
