Moore Blasts Back at Giuliani

Michael Moore responds to Rudy Giuliani’s attacks by pointing out that he’s been unresponsive to the 9/11 workers featured in his film, “Sicko.” Like firefighters groups that have launched anti-Giuliani ads, he’s targeting what has been thought to be the former New York Mayor’s greatest strength.

“You have refused to help them,” Moore says in a YouTube message posted on his site today. “You have refused to even talk to them.”

Two of the workers, Reggie Cervantes and Bill Maher, sent Giuliani a letter in May, asking him, “Given the fact that you are running for President, we would like to meet with you to discuss what your plans are for helping the health care needs of 9/11 responders if you become President.” The letter also was critical of President Bush’s investigation of Moore for taken them and others to get health care treatment in Cuba. They got no response.

Today, by the way, was the first day of Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival in Michigan.
