Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore turns political heat on high

Hot at the top: Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore turns political heat on high: "If not already, Michael Moore is certain to become a household name in the coming weeks.
With today's release of his much-anticipated documentary 'Fahrenheit 9/11' - a blistering indictment of the George W. Bush administration and its actions before and after Sept. 11, 2001 - Moore is likely to stir up more shock and outrage than Richard Clarke, Bob Woodward and even himself after his own 'Bowling for Columbine' anti-gun documentary of 2001.

A viable hybrid of muckraking journalism and entertainment for Democrats and liberals, "Fahrenheit 9/11" is sure to infuriate many Republicans and neo-conservatives who keep their faith in the Bush administration and its brand of patriotism.

As for those inclined to believe that the war in the Middle East is best understood as a bid by Texas oil wealth for Iraq oil wealth, you might think of Moore as that choir’s preacher and "Fahrenheit 9/11" as his definitive sermon."
