Moore Blasts U.s. Tv Host + Network Live On Air

Filmmaker MICHAEL MOORE launched into an 11-minute rant on American TV on Monday (09Jul07), during which he blasted the media for misrepresenting his new healthcare documentary Sicko. The controversial director was appearing on CNN show The Situation Room when he blasted both the network and host Wolf Blitzer for having a "poor track record" as journalists. Moore had been invited onto the programme to counter a report made by CNN's chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, which pointed out alleged false information and statistics in Sicko, which takes aim at the U.S. healthcare system. Moore blasted, "That report was so biased, I can't imagine which pharmaceutical company ad is coming up right after our break. "All the statistics show that we have far worse healthcare than these other industrialised countries. We're the only ones that don't have it free and universal." Moore also accused the network of covering up the truth about the American healthcare system and the country's military involvement in Iraq. He said, "You're the ones who are fudging the facts. You've fudged the facts to the American people now for I don't know how long about this issue, about the war. "And I'm just curious, when are you gonna just stand there and apologise to the American people for not bringing the truth to them that isn't sponsored by some major corporation?"
