Here is a typical exchange:
Novin @ 179 posts a question for Michael Moore:
My wife and I went to see Sicko (at our local theater, the Battery Park Cinemas, across the street from Ground Zero) last week. My wife was skeptical (I have already signed on to ending our for profit health system) having heard all the pro corporate propaganda from her work colleagues.
She was shocked at the film and shaken out of her complacence of thinking that it was only those without insurance who are on shaky ground. My wife is a smart woman (graduate degree from Harvard, reads a lot) yet it took your film to completely change the way that she saw something so drastically.
Thank you for all your work. I’ve been a fan since Roger & Me. TV Nation was one of my all time favorites (I even remember the Health Care Olympics - the precursor to Sicko).
Michael Moore replies:
What happened with your wife after she saw sicko is exactly why the health care industry and the MSM are so desperate to make sure no one sees this film. All of our mail and the polling the Weinsteins have done at the theaters has shown that the people most affected by the movie are independents and conservatives. It truly turns them around on this issue. That is bad news for you know who.
