— Ace Un. Frickin'. Believable.
30, 2004 (Bloomington, Ill.) Filmmaker Michael Moore's Bush-basing documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" apparently has upset more than Republicans.
The (Bloomington) Pantagraph in central Illinois has sent a letter to Moore asking him to apologize for using what the newspaper says was a doctored front page in the film.
A scene early in the movie shows newspaper headlines related to the legally contested presidential election of 2000. It includes a shot of The Pantagraph's front page with the prominent headline: "Latest Florida recount shows Gore won election."
But the Pantagraph says that headline was never on the front page. It only appeared -- in much smaller type -- above a letter to the editor.
Gee, that's not a misrepresentation or anything, is it? He portrayed the paper as making the factual, reportial claim that Gore won the recount, while the "headline" (such as it was) was only the conclusion of a reader's letter to the editor.
A message left at Lions Gate Entertainment seeking comment from Moore wasn't immediately returned today.
You fat, lying, fat fucking fuck-faced fuck.

The paper is also asking for $1.00 in damages.
