Michael Moore seems really comfortable and at ease with Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez. A classic live interview with an engaged, but not invasive, crowd.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Michael, you're a brave man who speaks truth to those who forcefully would rather remain transfixed in their fictions.

We've expected a lot from you and you haven't let us down. For this you've been vilified and both attacked and ignored. That must be rough, but we appreciate that you've dedicated yourself to TRUTH and HONOR. Few can equal your effort, but they must be encouraged too.

Thank you, my friend.

It's true that when you stand up and speak the truth and how in life you live it. masses become scared because it disturbs the quiet lives they want.

Dear Dave,

I guess you haven't been keeping up with current events. Moore grossly distorted his "facts" in his documentary in order to win points with the liberal, anti-gun crowd. TRUTH is of no concern to Moore, just keeping his supporters happy and the wheel$ greased.....

This is a brilliant and wonderful interivew of a brilliant and wonderful human being. If we had a few more people like Michael Moore, Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez around we would all be living in a much better World. I salute and am grateful for the integrity and courage that all 3 of you show. Thank you!

Mark, can you substantiate that claim with some actual facts? One or two examples along the lines of "Here's what he said in the film...and here's the truth..." would help your post sound less like the anti-liberal, pro-gun knee-jerk reaction than it does, so far.

I watched this interview on World Link last night. It was impressive to hear Moore's comments, most especially concerning the many death threats and the toll it has taken on his family and health. Nobody takes chances like that for no good reason. The man has operated according to his ideals and to expose the lies that permeate American government and society.

Mark, most of Moore's work can be researched, and much of the video clips, etc., were actually on television or may also be researched. His attitude toward guns was a reaction to serious violence in schools and elsewhere in this country. You don't have to agree with him and may actually prefer to promote gun ownership, but that does not detract from the serious problems with confused and violent people, and it does not detract from Moore making the effort to raise awareness. Same with those who are politically confused and dangerous.

Michael Moore, the man of the hour and for the seasons.

Thanks for speaking out for the human race.

What makes a person become someone who continues to grow intellectually, and artistically combined with moral and physical courage AND, most importantly, acts on his compassion for those who are being beaten up by our system?
I don't know what makes one but I do know of, at least, one that exists; Michael Moore.
