Capitalism: A Hypocritical Odyssey
Hunter Baker, writing at the American Spectator’s AmSpecBlog, relates a conversation with his boss:
I was telling my boss, Robert Sloan (former Baylor president and current president of HBU), about Michael Moore’s new film Capitalism: A Love Story. We briefly discussed an interview of Moore by the Wall Street Journal yesterday in which Moore asserted that the auto workers should own 100% of the auto companies.
Sloan responded, "The interviewer should have asked Moore if the crews on his films own the projects they work on for him." That would be a nice question for the filmmaker, wouldn’t it?
"Mr. Moore, do you pay your workers a wage to perform their functions or — consistent with your philosophy — do they own the films you make along with you?"
Any doubts as to what the answer is to that? Yeah, me neither.
Baker asks any reporters out there to ask Moore that question. However, any doubts as to whether the MSM will be reluctant to push that point? Yeah, me neither. Guess it’ll fall to Fox News or some independent conservative upstarts.
Speaking truth to power indeed. More like gushing.
