Scorsese. Listen To Moore

Veteran film director MARTIN SCORSESE has pleaded with America to listen to the controversial out-bursts of documentary maker MICHAEL MOORE.

Moore slammed American President GEORGE W BUSH, as well as his stance on war, when he collected his OSCAR at Sunday's (23MAR03) ACADEMY AWARDS in Los Angeles.

Although outspoken Moore - who took the Best Documentary gong for BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE - offended a large section of the audience with his tirade, the GANGS OF NEW YORK director is angry he was shouted down.

Scorsese - who's also criticised Bush's Iraq policy - says, "Even if the guy is saying something we don't like, we still have to hear him out."
