Reach into your pockets...

Although his guerrilla tactics make him the antithesis of a competent, objective journalist, Michael Moore tends to get a pass from liberals because he's a mouthpiece for the "right" side of most arguments. Sure, he harasses aging, sickly movie stars. And, yes, he picks some of the most ridiculous examples to illustrate his points. But, the War in Iraq was wrong. And guns do kill. And so on.

I can't say I'm eagerly awaiting this New Film by Michael Moore, the teaser for which just showed up on Yahoo Movies, but there's something to be said for his blunt force rhetoric. After dealing with the absurdity of having PR spokesmen deliver prepared comments full of ill-conceived talking points (on behalf of so-and-so senator and such-and-such company), I can understand and almost admire his firebrand approach to reporting.
