Michael Moore Blasts CNN “Crap”

In an appearance on CNN’s “Situation Room,” Michael Moore chided CNN for a report on his movie “Sicko” that questioned its claims about the health care system in Canada, among other things.

Moore asked Wolf Blitzer to apologize on behalf of the network for not bringing issues like the war in Iraq and health care to viewers earlier.

Noting an appearance on CNN in 2004, Moore said that he was questioned about the claims in “Fahrenheit 9/11” even though time has shown that “everything I said in Fahrenheit was true.” Moore charged that CNN was being influenced by the proliferation of pharmaceutical companies that advertise on the network, particularly in its medical news reporting.

“You are funded by these people day in and day out,” Moore said.

Moore challenged Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s facts in a pre-interview report, as Blitzer defended Gupta’s record.

“You and CNN, Dr. Gupta, you didn’t do your jobs back then, and that is why we are in this mess. What if you had actually done your job on that?”
