Michael Commands

Michael Moore has thrown down the gauntlet to the media:

    Filmmaker Michael Moore says journalists are missing the real story on Iraq.

    Journalists should look into a possible deal between the Bush administration and Russia to carve up Iraq’s oil fields after ousting Saddam Hussein, he said.

    “People in the media know this story but nobody will just say it or just do it,” said Moore, who accepted the Freedom of Speech Award Thursday night at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival.

    “Come on. What’s wrong with our media? What are they afraid of?” he said. “Where is the Woodward and Bernstein for our time? Where are the young people?” [AP]

Hmm, if this is such a hot story, why don’t you do it yourself Michael? Surely you have more freedom and greater resources than the average jounalist. Could it be because that would require actual work, research, and, ick, facts, facts, facts? It is much easier to hurl accusations from above and demand that lesser mortals do the actual work. Or it could just be total bullshit.
