An Open Letter to CNN from Michael Moore

Dear CNN, Well, the week is over -- and still no apology, no retraction, no correction of your glaring mistakes. I bet you thought my dust-up with Wolf Blitzer was just a cool ratings coup, that you really wouldn't have to correct the false statements you made about "Sicko." I ... continue reading

Dear Mr. President: Send Even MORE Troops (and you go, too!) ...from Michael Moore

Dear Mr. President, Thanks for your address to the nation. It's good to know you still want to talk to us after how we behaved in November. Listen, can I be frank? Sending in 20,000 more troops just ain't gonna do the job. That will only bring the troop level ... continue reading

Cut and Run, the Only Brave Thing to Do ...a letter from Michael Moore

Friends, Monday, November 27th, marked the day that we had been in Iraq longer than we were in all of World War II. That's right. We were able to defeat all of Nazi Germany, Mussolini, and the entire Japanese empire in LESS time than it's taken the world's only superpower ... continue reading

LANDSLIDE! ...a big thanks from Michael Moore

November 8th, 2006 Friends, You did it! We did it! The impossible has happened: A majority of Americans have soundly and forcefully removed Bush's party from control of the House of Representatives and the Republicans have also, miraculously, been tossed out of running our United States Senate. This was done ... continue reading

The Race Between the Right Wing and the Right Thing ...a message from Michael Moore

It's All About Who You Sleep With ... a Cautionary Note from Michael Moore

Friends, Let the resounding defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman send a cold shiver down the spine of every Democrat who supported the invasion of Iraq and who continues to support, in any way, this senseless, immoral, unwinnable war.

Send Me Your Health Care Horror Stories... an appeal from Michael Moore

Friends, How would you like to be in my next movie? I know you've probably heard I'm making a documentary about the health care industry (but the HMOs don't know this, so don't tell them — they think I'm making a romantic comedy). If you've followed my work over the ... continue reading

50 Years Ago Today... From Michael Moore
