Sicko: Heavily Doctored

While it generated a good deal of buzz on the left and in the media, relative to Farenheit 911, Michael Moore’s “Sicko” seems to have been a dud. There may be any number of reasons for this relative lack of success, but I think the overtly-socialist message has a much narrower audience than a foreign policy flick that tears apart what we all know was a deeply-flawed foreign policy being propagated by the Bush Administration.
Of course, when Kurt Loder of MTV fame unloads a scathing review, it is a given that the rest of the mainstream, left-leaning media is not lined up in lock-step with your cause.
