Two Films

There are two films:

1) Fahrenheit 9/11
Michael Moore's controversial documentary which I have addressed in the previous post. Moore's expressed goal for making the movie is to campaign against President Bush.

2) Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal
This documentary is an account of Vietnam POWs who suffered torture at the hands of their captors as a result of Kerry's public accusations of war crimes. It is scheduled to air on Sinclair Broadcasting's stations between October 21 and 24, 2004. Sinclair Broadcasting reaches about 24% of U.S. households.

There has been much outrage from the left about Stolen Honor. That seems fair. There's been much outrage from the right about Fahrenheit. It remains to be seen how honest Stolen Honor is. I suspect it is mostly honest. My point here is that we should have the right to see it and analyze its veracity for ourselves. The left can complain to the FCC all they want. They should wait to see it before judging it. If it's a matter of campaign money, they should've complained about that when Fahrenheit came out.
