Criticism of the filmmaker’s hypocrisy is not limited to conservatives
Filmmaker Michael Moore visited Portland yesterday as part of a book tour. While in Portland, Moore spoke to the Occupy Portland protesters.
NewsBusters reported that Portland’s own Daylight Disinfectant asked Moore some tough questions, which Moore ignored: “An Occupy Portland participant asked Moore if the richest 400 people in the country could “give back” $1 million each. The hypocritical flimmaker repeated the question saying it was a good idea. A reporter for the Oregon based website Daylight Disinfectant shouted out, “How about a million of your 50 million?” Moore declined to answer.
A writer on left-leaning MEDIAite wrote that they wished Daylight Disinfectant had asked “Moore about his use of non-union workers on his Capitalism: A Love Story“.
The Portland Mercury noted that Moore “swept off into a black SUV”.
