Regarding the election, neither. The only people who will watch it are those who already don't like him, and the rest won't watch it.

Left-leaning? Yeah, at a 90°angle! This lefterd is desperate for attention. I'd like to to see it for comical value, like AlGore's Inconvenient (un)Truth which has proven to have 0% accuracy. Oh, wait, was it satire?

Moore better hope Trump doesn't win, as Trump will likely jail him for crimes against the Trump or something Trumped up like that.

Michael Moore lives a luxury lifestyle in Beverly Hills riding in limos, private jets and eating gourmet food etc Then at the same time he makes these ludicrous "documentaries" that, he claims, are for the downtrodden people of our world. What a hypocrite! Vote for Donald Trump 2016!!!

First off, I couldn't find any link to Moore owning a private jet. Next, what exactly is the problem with the rest of those?

Then at the same time he makes these ludicrous "documentaries" that, he claims, are for the downtrodden people of our world. What a hypocrite!

Please be clear, what exactly is hypocritical? When has he ever said that being rich was wrong?

Leonardo's probably got a chapter in the same book.

February 10, 2011 - ... Mr. Moore is a jet-setting multimillionaire living a life of luxury, leisure and fame. He travels in a private plane and a fleet of SUVs. He is completely detached from the workers he claims to defend. In fact, he has misrepresented almost every facet of himself in order to forge a false “little guy” persona. As Peter Schweizer convincingly documents in his superb book, “Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy” (Broadway Books, 2005), Mr. Moore is a fraud. ...

For example, he claims to come from working-class roots in Flint, Mich. “I think once you’re working class, you’re always working class,” the filmmaker said. The Moore’s family home, however, was not in Flint but in the nearby middle-class town of Davison. His father - contrary to Mr. Moore’s claims - was not some low-level autoworker struggling to put food on the table. Instead, he worked at General Motors where he earned a comfortable salary, owned a bourgeois home, sent his four kids to private Catholic school and played golf nearly every day at a private club. Mr. Moore had a privileged upbringing. ... He claims that white flight from the cities to the suburbs is based on fear of blacks - supposedly a glaring illustration of deep-seated racism. He said that whites “gave black America a pat on the back - and then ran like the devil to the suburbs.” Yet, Mr. Moore has not practiced what he preaches. He does not live in an interracial neighborhood. Instead, he has made his home at a swanky mansion in Central Lake, in an upscale, exclusive and overwhelmingly white community in northern Michigan. ... For his films ... rarely hires blacks in senior positions - whether producers, editors, cameramen or production managers. ... He also dislikes using union workers on his sets - or paying them union wages. ... His investment portfolio has included owning significant shares of stock in medical, health, pharmaceutical, defense and big oil companies, such as Pfizer, Merck, Eli Lilly, Pharmacia Corporation, Tenet Healthcare, Sunoco, General Electric and even the “evil” Halliburton. ... He wants to soak the rich with higher taxes, but uses accountants to exploit every loophole and exemption ...
