In the most media-centric presidential election in my memory, we’ve seen lots of talk of swift boats, the war on terror, and bickering as to whether or not U.S. domestic issues have been discarded at the wayside in favor of chasing bin Laden and Saddam.
And of course, there was Fahrenheit 9/11.
I’m really hoping for a television broadcast of the film because I don’t know if it’s worth paying for, but I may rent the DVD to examine it.
But Moore may no longer be king of 9/11 documentaries. A group of prominent celebrities, including Zell Miller and Ed Koch, have rebutted the filmmaker in FahrenHYPE 9/11 (what an original title ), which is set to release in stores October 5th. The trailer looks pretty solid visually. Hopefully, it will be a good check against Fahrenheit 9/11’s widespread success.
May the most famous celebrity win.
