GUEST,Frankham BS: REVIEW Fahrenheit 9/11 (76* d) RE: BS: REVIEW Fahrenheit 9/11 26 Jun 04


Thought the review in the Seattle Times Review was a fair one.
The term "propaganda" is easilly thrown around when you don't agree with the ideas being presented. I am not aware of any organization that doesn't use propaganda to some degree if no other reason than propagandizing their claim of objectivity. I would apply this to Annenberg or any other claimant. Propaganda is therefore in the "eye of the beholder". But Moore's film is powerful because it has a basis of truth. The pictures in Iraq don't lie. There are some who claim that life under Saddam was all misery. No, like any other dictatorial society, there are those who can still party, sing, dance and love.
But not when the bombs are falling on them.
