Moore specifics

Letter to the editor

To the editor:

What exactly does Michael Moore claim was incorrect in the New Yorker article of Feb 16, 2004? This is what Larissa Macfarquhar wrote: “…he [Moore] insisted that the movie [“Roger & Me”] not be shown in any country that he felt practiced segregation, such as South Africa or Israel.”

Was Macfarquhar making it up? Did Moore ever try to prevent his earlier films from being shown in Israel? Did he accuse Israel of apartheid and make the comparison between it and pre-Mandela South Africa?

A broad general claim that the article was incorrect would never satisfy the filmmaker Moore. Nor should it satisfy your readers. Specificity please!
