Moore was stunned when Hammer wanted a response to his comment, "I've heard people say they wish Michael Moore were dead," during a live interview at the Democratic National Conference (DNC) in Boston, Massachusetts.
The FAHRENHEIT 9/11 movie maker stumbled through his answer yesterday (27JUL04) and then staged a press conference to criticise Hammer and CNN.
He said, "If you're a real journalist you don't ask a question like that on live television. No one has ever asked that of anybody and for the obvious reasons."
Moore insisted O'Reilly filmed their chat live and agreed not to edit out anything he said.28/07/2004 02:50
