Moore Of SameOne can only imagine that, when these ailing Americans are on their death beds, Moore will prop their lifeless carcasses up in front of a camera and film their excruciating demise. In living technicolor.

May 20, 2007 -- Three Ground Zero volunteers who went to Cuba with filmmaker Michael Moore for free medical help got lots of hugs, round-the-clock tests and some needed treatment, but they came back with most of the same problems - and some new ones.
The 20-minute segment of the film devoted to Cuba seems to portray the trip as a "reverse flotilla" - but it's purely for show.
The responders told The Post that Moore rented three charter fishing boats in Miami, loading crew members and sick people - about 10 to a boat. In the movie, the boat is seen heading out to sea, presumably bound for Cuba. But in reality, the boat made a U-turn to Miami, and Moore's group later boarded a commercial flight to Cuba.
In another seaborne stunt, Moore took the responders on a tugboat to the military base at Guantanamo Bay, where they idled offshore and Moore, using a bullhorn, asked for medical attention, shouting, "My friends have sacrificed their health to help others after 9/11." (link)
It's my understanding that he's entitled his movie "Sicko." Seems appropriate.
