Fang-Face writes "Following up the non-library story of interest that is Michael Moore's film: Stuart Klawans, of The Nation, had his review of Fahrenheit 9/11 posted to Alternet.org. All will not like it, of course, but there is one anamolous factor in the controversy Klawans notes:
For clarity's sake, then, let's start with the politics: the film's bill of particulars against Bush, and also against the Democratic leadership, which in Moore's view has colluded most shamefully in the misrule the world now suffers. [...] Moore's antagonists, being Republican, won't go so easy on him. Their attacks will no doubt include the charge that his film is Democratic Party propaganda. You should understand from the preceding the flimsiness of this accusation --
Moore apparently didn't criticize Bush alone, he bashed the whole government and the part played by the Democrats. "
