Drug Companies Issue Michael Moore Warning

LOS ANGELES -- Some drug companies want to make sure filmmaker Michael Moore gets lots and lots of attention -- especially if he sets foot on their property.

The pharmacy corporations are telling employees to be on the lookout for the man with the well-known baseball hat, saying that he may be filming a documentary on the health care industry, including insurance companies, HMOs, the Food and Drug Administration and drug companies.

A spokesman for Pfizer said the company has posted a Moore warning in its online newspaper.

Five other drug companies have issued similar warnings to their employees, too.

Moore's targets have included General Motors, the gun lobby and President George W. Bush.

Yep, Moore's next documentary is supposed to be on the pharmaceutical industry and it's running scared.

As an aside...
I liked Bowling for Columbine but thought Farenheit 911 sucked. This is based on their merit as flicks, not agreement with what Moore had to say. [Actually, in terms of the degree to which I agreed with what Moore had to say, the order would be reversed.]

I think Moore has burned up his 15 minutes of fame now. Most people know him and I'm sure after some of the tactics he used to film these films people will be wary to answer any questions asked by anyone filming a documentary.

I bought FarenHype 911 and many of the people interviewed had no idea he was behind the Farenheit 911. He sends crews out that lie to the people they interview about who is behind it and what is the purpose.

Moore exploited servicemen and their families to make a profit IMHO for his film.

Moore is a jerk that has never done anything of importance in his life, yet he goes around making 3rd rate films criticizing others, and what they have done. And, his films have always been far from being accurate documentaries - mostly leftwing propaganda and outright lies. Typical lefty/socialist/liberal. He's probably hoping he can stir up some lawsuits and drive the cost of medicine and drugs even higher. Then it would be easier to convince the public we need to have socialized medicine and government run pharmaceutical laboratories.
