‘Moore’ Fact-Checking

I viewed the new Michael Moore movie, Capitalism: A Love Story, last night and had a mixed reaction. As I expected, Moore rightly criticized government corruption and corporate bailouts but seemed to wrongfully imply they were inherent elements of capitalism. Particularly worrisome to me was the last part of the movie in which Moore seems to gloss over the months since Obama has been in office.

Also of concern, as with many of his movies, was the veracity of the claims made. PolitiFact has been busy fact-checking several claims made in the film. Their posts can be viewed here.
