The Press Defends "Fahrenheit 9/11"... Meekly

The first in a series of blind items on Michael Moore's new movie, Fahrenheit 9/11. Blind items are actual arguments made by professional journalists and paid pundits for the veracity of the movie.

...made in the Michael Moore style.

...plays to the paranoia gallery.

The contortions of logic required to defend or praise the film (even if only backhandedly) is damn hysterical to watch. Feel free to add your own blind items or send them to me.
