As If We Needed Proof...

...that Michael Moore is a lying sack of equine anal emissions, this is from a memo recently posted on WikiLeaks.  The memo was written by U.S. diplomats in Havana:
...the memo reveals that when the film was shown to a group of Cuban doctors, some became so "disturbed at the blatant misrepresentation of healthcare in Cuba that they left the room".

Castro's government apparently went on to ban the film because, the leaked cable claims, it "knows the film is a myth and does not want to risk a popular backlash by showing to Cubans facilities that are clearly not available to the vast majority of them."

Sicko investigated healthcare in the US by comparing the for-profit, non-universal US system with the non-profit universal health care systems of other countries, including Cuba, France and the UK.
I suspect Moore is just out to make a buck, and couldn't give a hoot about the truth of his assertions, or consequences of them...

  1. Interesting. I downloaded the entire WikiLeak torrent and grepped through it, but could find no mention of "Sicko". I wonder who the Guardian's sources are?

    Also, if he is just out to make a buck, why did he volunteer to put up $20,000 for Julian Assange's bail?

    Funny how you neocons object to WikiLeaks, yet are so quick to use it as "evidence".
