This long article interested me. I have always known that Moore shows a slanted view. But this is different. And the funny thing is people believe him.

I once read an analysis of Bowling For Columbine which really highlighted how far Moore is willing to go to bend the truth to convey his message; as a result I've had little interest in seeing Moore's films since then.

I just skimmed it, but the case it makes is pretty weak. It doesn't seem to target any actual factual errors, but makes it's case by nitpicking over semantics, as in this example:

How did Bush win Florida? "Second, make sure the chairman of your campaign is also the vote count woman." Actually Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris (who was Bush's Florida co-chair, not "the chairman") was not the "vote count woman." Vote counting in Florida is performed by the election commissioners in each of Florida's counties. The Florida Secretary of State merely certifies the reported vote. The office does not count votes.

It should be called "59 quibbles about Farenheit 9-11"
