15 years after getting booed, Michael Moore got a chance to finish his Oscar speech

In 2003, the American public wasn’t quite ready to recognize the idea that George W. Bush was a monster who had thrown the country—and partly the world—into an endless and meaningless war in Iraq, which Michael Moore discovered when he used his acceptance speech for Bowling For Columbine’s Best Documentary Academy…

Michael Moore shares footage cut from Fahrenheit 11/9 of pipe bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc 

Last week, when FBI officials arrested Cesar Sayoc, the Florida man accused of sending explosive devices to prominent Democratic Party figures, pretty much nobody was surprised to hear that he was a diehard Trump supporter, given the political leanings of his targets. Least surprised of all was Michael Moore, who, in…

Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 11/9 isn't doing so well (relatively)

This shouldn’t be taken as proof that the opposition to Donald Trump is really just some #fakenews, but Michael Moore’s anti-Trump film Fahrenheit 11/9 seems to be bombing at the box office, with the documentary’s returns coming in significantly lower than those of Moore’s own Fahrenheit 9/11, the Bush-era documentary…

Michael Moore looks at and beyond Trump in the enraged but scattered Fahrenheit 11/9

B-

No right-wing troll could ever trigger liberals as effectively as Michael Moore does in the first few minutes of Fahrenheit 11/9. He opens his new agitprop state-of-the-union documentary with footage from election night 2016, dragging us again through the slow-motion car crash of the evening’s events: the festivities…

Michael Moore's theory that Gwen Stefani created President Trump sounds like bullshit

We can blame Donald Trump’s rise to power on a lot of things, including the idiotic racism of white people, the Russians, James Comey, the Democrats’ insistence on treating him like a “normal” political opponent and not a dangerous monster, and Bernie Sanders’ decision to pout for a while when he lost instead of…

Celebrities and activists held their own Trump-less State Of The Union

Early reports on the 2018 State Of The Union indicate we’ll see a kinder, gentler Trump at the podium, as he tries to use “bipartisan” language in place of his usual dog whistles (though there’s a good chance he’s pissed because he thinks he’ll need a translator). Even so, you have other viewing options tonight, like…

Michael Moore is taking his anti-Trump Broadway show on tour

According to Deadline, he’ll soon be taking The Terms Of My Surrender on tour, saying in a statement that “there is no surrender” and that he’ll be hitting the…

When describing Trump’s soul, Stephen Colbert has to resort to profanities

One of the many, many down sides to having a degenerate blowhard in the White House, who threatens nuclear war in the same offhanded manner that he retweets anti-Semitic memes, is that there are only so many ways to relate what would be cartoon villainy if only Trump didn’t actually have the ability to order a nuclear…

Michael Moore and Mark Ruffalo took a Broadway audience out to protest Trump Tower tonight

Michael Moore’s new Broadway show, The Terms Of My Surrender, ended on a surprisingly interactive note tonight, when Moore—and actor Mark Ruffalo, who happened to be in attendance—surprised his audience by offering to bus them over to Trump Tower for an impromptu protest of America’s Nazi violence…

Prophets Of Rage announce debut full-length, share Michael Moore-directed video

Last summer, angry supergroup Prophets Of Rage—featuring members of Rage Against The Machine, Cypress Hill, and Public Enemy—went on a big North American tour, with a stop at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. But the band has been relatively quiet since then. Until today, as Prophets Of Rage has once…

Michael Moore announces new documentary that will definitely take down Trump

Earlier this month, Michael Moore announced a one-man show called The Terms Of My Surrender that boldly asked in its poster if a Broadway show can “take down a sitting president.” That show won’t start previews until July, but Moore has already announced a different project that he’s also positioning as the one thing…

Michael Moore’s going after Trump on Broadway

The poster for Michael Moore’s new one-man show asks: “Can A Broadway Show Take Down A Sitting President?” Alas, we’re going to guess the answer is “no,” but Moore is sure as hell going to try. The production titled The Terms Of My Surrender was announced today and will mark the documentarian’s Broadway debut.…

Leonardo DiCaprio, Chance The Rapper, and more celebrate Standing Rock victory

The protests at Standing Rock over the Dakota Access Pipeline have resulted in a victory for the Sioux, as NBC News reports the Army Corps Of Engineers has turned down Energy Transfer Partners’ permit for construction through sovereign lands.
