Michael Moore Gets Screwed
Perhaps Michael Moore would have been better suited to make movies, not documentaries. After all, like actors in a film, Moore has been pretending to be something he’s not: a hater of capitalism.Hey a guy's gotta eat.

In a 2009 interview with Larry King, Moore — famous for “Roger & Me,” “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11″ — described capitalism as a failure and voiced his own support for a socialist society.
“I don’t think I’m in that [richest] 1 percent … Even if I were, I think it’s my responsibility — my moral duty that if I’ve done well, that I have to make sure that … the pie is divided fairly amongst the people and not just a few people get the majority of the loot and everybody else has to struggle for the crumbs,” Moore told King.
However, details that have emerged thanks to Moore’s impending divorce from wife Kathleen Glynn suggest that the documentarian is not a champion of socialism but, as Jalopnik Detroit so eloquently puts it, a “filthy rich hypocrite.”
