Michael Moore Scratched Off Wolf Blitzer's Christmas Card List

This bit of news isn’t as sexy as a breathless update on who might be starring in what, and the comments are sure to devolve into ideology-bound snark in short order, but we’re duty-bound to report the facts, ma’am, and here they are: Michael Moore appeared on CNN Monday, ostensibly to promote his latest film, "Sicko," but some unwise scheduling and three years of pent-up frustration combined to put host Wolf Blitzer in the crosshairs instead.

Unfortunately for Blitzer, Moore’s appearance on "The Situation Room" was preceded by a segment hosted by the network’s resident medical expert, Sanjay Gupta, in which Gupta accused Moore of "fudging some facts" in "Sicko." Moore, predictably, was annoyed by this — and since he was making his first appearance on CNN since the network, along with the rest of the mainstream media, scoffed at his last film, "Fahrenheit 911," Moore decided to take off the gloves and let Blitzer know exactly how he feels about not only Gupta’s segment, but the entire network.

Reactions to this story have largely fallen along party lines, which is par for the course with Michael Moore, but regardless of how you feel about the man’s message, it’s hard to argue against the notion that the cable news networks deserve to be raked over the coals for their handling of any of a number of issues — and in an era of increasingly stultified debate, it’s refreshing to see some honest emotion on one of these shows that isn’t drowned out by crosstalk or cut off by a commercial break.
