Right Thinking From The Left Coast
The Government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them. - Mark Twain

Berg’s Eye View Dept.

Mikey’s got another scoop.

Filmmaker Michael Moore, whose incendiary new documentary lambastes President Bush’s handling of the war, said Thursday that he has footage unused in the film of Nicholas Berg, the American civilian later beheaded in Iraq.

The footage, of an interview with Berg, “is approximately 20 minutes long. We are not releasing it to the media,” Moore said in a statement. “It is not in the film. We are dealing privately with the family.”

Expect to find it on the DVD.  Besides, the next paragraph inadvertently lets us know what’s going on.

Neither Moore nor his representatives would describe the nature or contents of the interview with Berg, who held staunch pro-war views.

Interesting that the article doesn’t mention the fact that Berg’s father (i.e. the family with which Moore is now “dealing") holds staunchly anti-war and anti-Bush views.  Moore is most likely talking to the father, plotting with him on how best to use this footage to defame Bush.  And, like all good newspaper articles on Moore, they end by repeating his lie about Disney.

Moore’s assault on U.S. policy got him into trouble with Disney, which refused to let subsidiary Miramax release “Fahrenheit 9/11.” He is still trying to work out a deal for U.S. distribution.

If you repeat it enough times it becomes true.

Update: Let’s see what kind of unholy geek you are.  Does anyone out there know where the title to this post comes from?  And don’t look it up on Google, be honest.
