Michael Moore - world's best liar? Part II

Okay - I earlier posted an article about Michael Moore's new film (note that I don't say documentary, because it doesn't fit the definition) Fahrenheit 9/11 (F911). In this, I stated that I hadn't found a good rebuttal or criticism. At least one reader interpreted this to mean that there weren't any, so I bunkered down and did some more research (even prior to getting my caffeine hit this morning). In that, I quickly found two rebuttals - one from an apparent left-winger and another from an apparent conservative. To help educate the world on Moore's deceit, I'll post the links below:

Unfahrenheit 9/11 - The lies of Michael Moore is an interesting and short take on rebutting the claims Moore makes in the movie. It doesn't spend too much time quoting original sources, but it has a few relevant citations and all.

59 Deceits in Fahrenheit 9/11 is a much more detailed analysis of the movie. This is also one of the best pieces of criticism I've seen in awhile. It truly dissects the film, provides the contextual basis for any quote or clip that Moore uses, and makes sure the reader understands exactly why what Moore is attempting to prove is false. Note that it also doesn't praise Bush either - it truly does attempt to be neutral, IMHO. Also, in the interest of parity and fairness, it does note that Moore has attempted to address the points made and even provides the link to his rebuttal (not that the rebuttals don't fail, but still...)

I'll be more than happy to answer any criticims, but I bet the left will be left trying to pull their pants up after reading the articles...
