Michael Moore is Scary...

... since six major American drug and health care companies, such as Pfizer, Astrazeneca and Glaxosmithkline, have "prompted at least six drug companies to warn their employees to watch out for the director" and "instructed employees not to answer questions posed by Moore, but to redirect them to each company's communications department."

Rachel Bloom, executive director of corporate communications for AstraZeneca, notes, "Moore's past work has been marked by negativity, so we can only assume Sicko won't be a fair and balanced portrayal. His movies resemble docudramas more than documentaries." But Moore feels the movie, which is expected to be released in 2006, will strike a common chord with the American public. He explains, "Being screwed by your (health-care provider) and ill-served by pharmaceutical companies is the shared American experience."

Considering that more than 200,000 people work for these companies, I find it impossible to believe that not a single one of them is secretly hoping to find Michael and perform the ultimate heinous act of American treason... tell the truth.
