Big Pharma Is Afraid of Michael Moore

Dude, this is sad. From CQ Midday Update:

The pharmaceutical industry has issued an urgent warning to its work force: Be on the lookout for a scruffy-looking fat guy in a baseball cap. The Los Angeles Times reports that at least six of the nation's biggest drugmakers have alerted employees to steer clear of filmmaker Michael Moore, whose previous targets have included General Motors ("Roger & Me"), the gun lobby (the Oscar-winning "Bowling for Columbine") and President Bush ("Fahrenheit 9/11"). Moore, it seems, is taking aim at the health-care industry, including drug companies. The companies told employees to refer all questions to "corporate communications," the Times reported. The Moore epic is tentatively titled "Sicko," and will probably be released in the first half of 2006. The movie, Moore said, is only in its early stages "and already people are freaky-deaky."
See, I'm one of those strange aberration lefties who hates Moore. I despise anyone who screws up a perfectly valid point with lies and manipulation. Someone other than a rich white guy should be this country's star political documentarian.
