Now that Sicko has been made available for viewing by serious commentators, it is becoming obvious that the film is even more disingenuous than expected.
The [film’s] intent is to mislead rather than to inform or enlighten. SiCKO strikes me as even worse than Moore’s previous, problematic long form works, the anti-gun Bowling for Columbine and the rabidly anti-Bush Fahrenheit 9/11.
Meanwhile, Moore’s dishonesty isn’t limited to his film. At the press conference preceding the Washington preview of Sicko, he repeated virtually every debunked Lefty canard in the book. This piece by David Hogberg re-debunks them.
Finally, for a somewhat over-the-top take on Sicko, go to Michelle Malkin’s blog and watch this.
