06/26 Media Response to Michael Moore’s film


Michael Moore’s new film ‘Sicko’ premiered this past weekend throughout the country, despite challenges from the Bush Administration on Moore’s travel to Cuba. The film challenges the privatized health care model in the US, and contrasts the US system with nationalized health care in Canada, England, France and Cuba.
While activists leaflet outside hundreds of movie theaters promoting the single-payer healthcare system, the media has been largely critical of the film.
Jim Naureckas (now-REEK-ahs), with Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, claims that this is because the pockets of the mainstream media have been lined by the pharmaceutical industry.
