Quotes About

John Varley said, after viewing Sicko:

Dear Michael Moore,

All right, I give up. You’ve won me over.I don’t think I’m ever going to like you very much, but I’ve come to believe that you’re a necessary evil, and I’m at the point where I’ll accept almost anything that fights the current regime and the multiple messes that exist in this country


Trouble is, Michael, you’re a liar, and I don’t like liars. You’re also a propagandist, and I’m not very comfortable with those, either.


What I’ve finally accepted is what you are not. You are not a journalist. Therefore, you have no obligation to present the other side of the story. You are not really a documentarian, though your films resemble documentaries. You are an advocate, a debater, and as such, you may shade your argument – another term for lie – in the service of what you (and I) see as a greater good... though I have to swallow hard to say that. (...) It’s a sad world when I have to accept the likes of you as my spokesman, but there it is.
