I'm BY NO MEANS trying to get any kind of "who's right/who's wrong" debate going here, but I thought everyone might find this interesting.
"Bowling For Columbine" has been researched, and apparantly is quite "fictitious" (to use MM's new favorite word).
I'm thinking that if everyone knew this, they probably wouldn't be quite so snowed over by his pseudo-documentary.
This first link is to the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal...
This link is to David Hardy's web site. He's "a former Interior Department lawyer who delights in debunking government officials and pompous celebrities"....
I think what bothers me the most, though, is that he won an Oscar for a DOCUMENTARY, which means it is supposed to be true. And he beat out other nominees who did work that wasn't misleading, or an attempt at notariety.
This really makes me sick. Just thought I'd share.
