Review: Fahrenheit 9/11 (

Review: Fahrenheit 9/11 ( "Moore also broadens his attack to include the major news outlets. He accuses the networks and cable news stations with being totally manipulated by government officials instead of asking tough questions. (Earlier this week on NBC's 'Today Show,' Moore made the same accusation to Katie Couric during an interview to promote 'Fahrenheit 9/11.' In a USA Today interview, Moore described reporters such as Couric as 'cheerleaders' for the war.)

Too often, Moore takes an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach to 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' which recently won the top prize at France's Cannes Film Festival. A segment on Bush's attendance record in the Texas Air National Guard seems dated. Moore's trip to his hometown of Flint, Mich., which shows poor people entering the military due to the lack of job opportunities and health-care options, lacks new insights, though it contains emotional moments."
