Michael Moore Goes Off on Wolf Blitzer

July 9, 2007 at 9:11 pm 7 comments

UPDATE: Here is the video of Moore slamming CNN for its biased coverage.

Michael Moore calls out Wolf Blitzer and CNN during an appearance on The Situation Room to talk about his new documentary Sicko. This is definitely must see tv. Wolf is clearly taken aback by the degree to which Moore brings the heat and points out repeatedly how CNN and the mainstream media have missed the boat of healthcare, the war in Iraq, the Walter Reed scandal etc.

In a prelude to the interview/debate, CNN medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta downplays the healthcare crisis in America and makes excuses for the health insurance and pharmaceutical companies.

47 million Americans with no healthcare

18,000 Americans die a year because of lack of health insurance

Why in the richest nation in the history of the world can we not find the money to ensure that every American has healthcare?

    In any normal time, those who take money from operations like CNN, FOX etc would have been declared traitors to their country and dealt with accordingly, but we don’t live in “normal times” anymore do we.

    They most certainly did miss the boat on Iraq. Like most of the media.

    I was flipping through channels before the 6:00 news came on, and happened to find Michael Moore giving it to CNN in a big way, just as he was beginning his rant. It’s a rare occasion that we will applaud the television, but this performance really deserved it. After his hour with Larry King (could LK have looked more disinterested?), AC360 comes on and basically refutes every point he raised. I’ll bet his blood was boiling if he saw that. It’s like inviting a guest for dinner, and then serving them the deposits from your cat’s litter box. I think CNN got what they deserved, and even after the interview was over Dobbs and Cafferty couldn’t resist taking a few shots of their own. Are they trying to become more like faux snooze at CNN?

    Moore rightfully asked Blitzer how many drug company ads run on CNN. Cafferty, Dobbs and Blitzer don’t have to worry about being able to afford health insurance cause CNN pays them quite handsomely. Its not an issue for them, therefor its not an issue at all.

    Caught Dobb’s little comment about Moore being more of a “left wing promoter than Hugo Chavez”. Says a whole lot about where the heads of CNN bigwigs are. It would be delicious to have someone come on one of these stations and go for the throat of someone like James Dobson on the complete bullshit about “protecting the sanctity of marriage” and call it out for what it really is…anti-gay prejudice. When will that happen?

    Tim, it should have already happened. But, as we saw with Moore the corporate media kings at CNN don’t take too well to anyone that doesn’t follow the conservative line.
