    ˇViva WikiLeaks! SiCKO Was Not Banned in Cuba | MichaelMoore.com
    Ok, According to Moore everything about Cuba from WikiLeaks is false. The lies go back as far as 1961. Hmmmmmmm.....but everything we'll be reading that is bad about America, we will be accepting as truth.
    If anyone can explain to me if I have someting wrong, please do. I am really confused.

    Start from reading the whole link I posted. Bottom line, the movie was shown.

    he is asking journalists to do the fact checking.

    that in itself is certainly reasonable.

    Well, Michael Moore says it was.

    And the cable is dated three months before the date he gives for it being shown.

    In any case, it should be a lesson for those who salivate over these leaks. Including Moore. Funny how he disparages the cables in general because of this (yet glorifies the concept of leaking them): ""a stunning look at the Orwellian nature of how bureaucrats for the state spin their lies and try to recreate reality (I assume to placate their bosses and tell them what they want to hear)."

    Well, Michael, then I guess the Wikileaks enterprise produced not much other than unreliable information.

    Moore says. He also says other lies were told about Cuba.
    but that's not what I'm confused about.
    Since some things are lies why wouldn't we suspect other lies will be told to harm America.
    I'm sure there would be more people who would want to shine a bad light on America than Cuba.

    Well, that depends on the so called "journalists" he asks doesn't it now? I mean, if it is someone like PolitiFact from the liberal St pete Times, that has demonstrated in the past that they allow their editorial board to run that section as well, leading to bias, then reasonable is not how I would describe them.

    so how do we know who is telling the truth... Micheal Moore or the source in the OP?

    Michael Moore only mentioned one time it was shown on Cuban television. I do not believe he said anything about it not being censored to suit the Cuban government's standards for its airing, which I find extremely likely. So in a way, they could both be right. Google seems to cofirm other, earlier sources backing up both the fact that it was banned in 2007, and the fact that it aired on TV once in 2008.

    "A cable from January 2008 says it wasn't shown."

    Moore: "Bull****! It was shown in April 2008!!! LIARS!!!!"

    Is there anyone who can take that movie - and Michael Moore in general - seriously after this? It was so dishonest in its portrayal of the Cuban health care system, it was banned in Cuba for making them look too good. There's something really awe-inspiring about that. You'd think that they'd be tossing it everywhere they could to use as propaganda if it was anywhere even close to being honest (to show why they're better than those capitalist American scum, etc). Yet somehow it must have crossed the line of dishonest and entered the realm of complete fantasy at some point.
    Anyone that has spent any time in a Commi country, or has a modicum of sanity knew Moore's flick was a crock... just like his other attempts at serious film making.

    Pure poison, but some people will believe anything. It's how we got Obama after all.
