Episode 289: Rumble with Michael Moore
Mr.Moore... saying a bunch of shit your audience wants to hear is what FOX does.... WTF are you doing? I see zero reporting of this. Did I miss some disclaimer? Are you a fan of Orson Well's War of the Worlds? We deserve better..
Wait please!! did this happen? Did Rupert Murdoch apologize? I can’t find it anywhere! Please confirm.
My wife and I rejoiced to the point of tears at the news - simultaneously we were dumfounded as to why we hadn't heard anything about this yet. Unlike Fox listeners, we immediately fact checked as it seemed too great to be true - nothing anywhere. Then we read the comments. We all make mistakes, but this is, perhaps, unforgivable. So disappointing in this not being real, so disappointing in the decision to do it. It's depressing. We don't understand why it was done. From two Canadians who struggle to remain hopeful for your society.
I fell for this. I am really bummed. I believed it all-- I yelled through the house, Fox News is off the Air. They have capitulated. You shouldn't do this to us, Michael. You just produced fake news yourself. Are we your listeners as gullible as the Fox News believers! Please set the record straight.
WTF. Not funny. Thought you were credible. Why would you broadcast this fantasy
Could you take a minute to respond to our comments. It seems people are upset. I know I am a bit upset. Nowhere did you say : no this is a dream. This is a fantasy. And I wish it were true - but you kept going with it .
That was a lot for people to take I think.
It would be appreciated if you could come on as soon as possible and speak about why you did this. It’s not that it’s not not forgivable. All is forgiven already, but it would be nice and helpful for you to explain.
I’m with the “Nutrition Magician”. I’ve been searching up and down trying to verify this story of yours. If it were true, it would be ALL OVER every other news channel, as well as the internet. It’s not, - and I’ve spent a bit of time searching for some sort of corroboration. And it’s not April Fool’s day either. So, what gives? I can’t say that I’m either impressed or enlightened with this particular segment of yours Michael; care to explain?
Why is this not funny? I’m a great fan, but this was a big turnoff.
Not funny at all. Coming from you, I expected truth. It didn’t happen but you managed to get me optimistic for a few minutes. Don’t April Fool us again. You owe us all an apology.
I'm sorry, but there is NOTHING on Media Matters about this. It is NOT FUNNY. It is heartbreaking. I almost got my hopes up only to have them dashed by an easy to research display of your duplicity. Yes, there were some giveaways, but only in the last five minutes. I do not find this amusing, Mike. Really. I suppose this was a birthday present to yourself--a nice little fantasy at the expense of your longtime listeners. It would have been funnier if you'd taken the time to create a fake broadcast such as you describe. Now it's just a sad, sad gut punch.
Your birthday should be April 1!
Happy birthday, Michael. You had my heart racing there for a minute. If only...
Happy Birthday MM! I am completely confused by your Rumble today--is it your birthday wish or a dream? I don't see any reporting on this and Fixed is still very much on air. What's going on?
Michael I think this is the birthday present you would hope for in the way that you would hope it would happen. Me too. But you are so convincing I actually have been looking it up and can’t find it - so what’s up then? But happy birthday Michael you’re the best.
Mr.Moore.. obviously you Punk'd us... standard Internet practice calls for me to call you some names then cancel my subscription... I won't let you off that easily... WHY did you do this? We deserve an explanation.. Answer us...
Also confused. I’m assuming it’s your own way of enjoying your birthday because it must be a Saturday Night Live video you’re describing. Please remember that we all trust you to tell us the truth. Many Happy Returns🎂
