Watch Sicko For Free, With Michael Moore's Blessing

He says he doesn't mind people appropriating his little home movies without paying.

Rob Port calls his bluff, and posts the whole thing online. Enjoy!

Actually, I think Moore might not be entirely bluffing -- not because he's truly willing to live by the rules of socialism he champions, but because he knows he's immune to them. People don't go to see Michael Moore movies to be entertained or informed, God knows; they go to see his movies in order to support Michael Moore, to keep him gainfully employed as a useful idiot fighting the Bush Administration.

So why should he mind if people download them for free? It's a marketing stunt that gains him more than it loses him. 90% of the people willing to sit through one of these inane film-school-final abortions at all aren't looking for a way to see his movies and avoid paying him; if anything, they'd rather there was a way to pay him some money without having to go through the pain of watching his film.

Still, it's there. Review away! As Sandy Berger told the DNC flunkies after pilfering documents from the 9/11 commission, "Gentlemen, start your shredders."

Brilliant, brilliant hit-whoring on Rob's part, I have to say. As a big ol' hit-whore myself, I have to give him big props.

I Don't Mind People Downloading My Movies... anyone want to bet Rob will be slapped with a harrassing letter from a law firm employed by Moore's studio in the next couple of days?

Completely forgot about that -- Moore can claim he doesn't mind giving his movies away for free. But goshdarnit, his investors are such sticklers on the point of recovering their money!

Actually... It's kind of interesting. Certainly the flick exposes how nasty the health insurance industry can be about weaseling out of paying for treatments.


Hah! Knew It: Thought I was in the twillight zone in there for a minute as Michael Moore was actually presenting facts. Now he's into his more comfortable millieu of conspiracy theorizing, blaming all health care woes on George Bush, and before him Ronald Reagan, and before him, Richard Nixon.

Good Lord.
