CNN's Gupta Attempts (And Fails) to "Reality Check" Moore

Crooks and Liars has been following this story very carefully.

Just before Michael Moore appeared on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, Gupta ran a hit piece entitled "SiCKO Reality Check". During his appearance on the Situation Room, Moore responded angrily by demanding an apology from Blitzer and promised to respond to Gupta on his website. He did and it sent Gupta reeling. He then continued his response by holding Gupta accountable on Larry King. Then, again, on his website, Moore set some facts straight. Michael Moore scored a clear victory over CNN, Wolf Blitzer, and Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

MediaBloodhound put together an interesting theory behind Gupta's hit piece.

Apparently, in an effort to nurse its wounds, CNN may have attempted to mess with Moore's physical appearance.

Here are the transcripts from Moore's appearance on The Situation Room...

Key Quote:
Moore: Why don’t you tell the truth to the American people? I mean I wish that CNN and th eother mainstream media would just for once tell the truth….You fudged the facts about this issue—-about the war and I’m just curious. When are you going to aplogize to the American people for not bringing the truth to them that isn’t sponsored by some major corporation?
It was great to see Moore stick up for himself and his film. I saw SiCKO and it was very good. I'll post a review later...

UPDATE (7/12/07):
Although Mike Huckabee is my second favorite Republican candidate, it is getting harder and harder for me to like him.

UPDATE II (12/9/07):
Although Mike Huckabee is my *favorite* Republican candidate, it is still very hard for me to still like him.
