Weekly Dig: Interview with Michael Moore

Fahrenheit 9/11 - Weekly Dig

In your movie, you criticize the way the American public is manipulated with fear by the media. How do you manipulate your images?

We do a de-manipulation of the images. The media in America provides a manipulation. During the Bush years, they put on a filter, and they only allow the American people to see what they think will keep the waters calm. So night after night on the evening news, you'll get maybe 5 seconds of George W. Bush where it sounds like he makes sense. In my film, I show the 20 seconds on either side of those 5 seconds where he clearly is totally discombobulated. In my film, I take the filter off, and you see it raw and uncensored and the way it really is. It's both hilarious and frightening.
