Stephanopolous Grills Moore
Aaron Arnwine points
us to George Stephanopolous' tough questioning
of fictional filmmaker Michael Moore on Sunday's This Week. Best bit:
STEPHANOPOULOS: But you're also making leaps, and by doing that, aren't you doing exactly what you accuse your opponents of doing? A lot of people have said the Bush administration looked at the raw data, looked at the raw intelligence about weapons of mass destruction, but then cherry-picked it, selectively edited it, exaggerated parts, extrapolated parts. Aren't you doing exactly the same thing?
George does let him get away with a ridiculous lie about the Bin Laden's supposed financial support for the Bush family:
MOORE: I don't blame him for that. I don't blame him for that. Hey, if you gave me $1.4 billion, I'd take your call too.
But overall he does a pretty good job of deflating the gasbag.
