More Conservative Backlash

Reported by Deborah - November 22, 2004

“The US press was acting like Saddam Hussein was Nelson Mandela languishing in jail after evil America came and took his country away from him.”

This is first time producer and California Realtor, Brad Masky discussing his point of view behind his new film WMD, The Murderous Reign of Saddam Hussein. The movie was produced to counter Michael Moore’s film Fahrenheit 911.

Masky feels that the media and producers like Michael Moore are distorting the truth and aren’t true Americans. In an attempt to catch Michael Moore off guard and prove he is a hypocrite, Masky uses one of Moore’s ambush film techniques to try and provoke a response.

“This is the 4th day of my Michael Moore stakeout… here we go”, says Masky. Masky asks Moore to talk with him and Moore gladly accepts. NPR interviewed Moore about his feelings on the movie and his response shows his full support of free speech and expression.

“I think that this art form should be open to people of all political persuasions. It should not just be people who are liberal or left of center… You don’t want just one voice or one stream of thought being put out there.”

Comment: Masky’s feeling that the US press has been undermining the government couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact the American media, especially outlets such as Fox News, have been supporting the administration at all costs though out the last four years, especially beginning with the Iraq war. The media’s reaction to Michael Moore was incredibly combative, trying to discredit him at every turn. But Michael Moore once again proved to be the true American, not only in his work, but in his fair and democratic response to Masky’s ambush.
