Keeping the Bastards Honest

Barbara had an interesting post discussing whether or not we would spend money to see a movie or perhaps purchase a cd from an artist that holds different political persuasions than ourselves or an artist we dislike because of their personality etc....say Tom Cruise! There were a number of comments regarding Michael Moore, and peoples distaste in him. My question to you all is Like him or loathe him, the Michael Moores of this world make us sit up and take notice. Yes, for sure they are antagonists, but doesn't this world need antagonists to keep the bastards honest? At the end of the day does it really matter that they enjoy their exposure, recieve money etc IF they are exposing full truths or half truths? That they make us question ( even if what they portray has been tweaked a wee bit) business .....politics etc?
Just a thought.

till next time, Michelle.
