59 Deceits in Farenheit 9/11

I found some of these pretty shocking. When I first saw the movie I thought it was pretty compelling, although it had some questionable logical leaps. The amount of deception (and outright inaccuracy) is surprising.

  1. It was an interesting movie if one views it as propaganda. I was questioning pretty much everything after the scene where Iraqi children, with flowers in their hair and music in the background, were peacefully playing on the playgrounds of Baghdad the day before the US attack, as if Iraq was a heavenly place. His work in Bowling for Columbine should be viewed similarly. http://www.hardylaw.net/Truth_About_Bowling.html

    I did, however, enjoy the humor in both.

  2. I think we’re all educated enough to know that any sort of media will have slants and twists, and I’m sure that we all viewed that movie knowing that would be the case. I agree with C Diggety – take it for what it’s worth. Which, for some, might be not much at all. You crazy kids are too conservative for me.

  3. Am I the only person that is sick of that fat fuck? Like most Americans he has a lot of strong opinions with absolutely nothing to back it up, but unfortunately HE has a video camera.

  4. I think the main objection a lot of people are starting to have is that the movie is billed as a “documentary.” That suggests that it should be factual and objective – and it’s neither.
