Moore gig outrageous

As a registered Democrat, I find the invitation of Michael Moore to speak at a college campus anywhere in America simply outrageous. This is not about a liberal or conservative getting play time just before an election. It's not even about the amount of the speaking fee, however foolish it may be to blow your budget on one speaker.

Moore's so-called "documentaries" have been analyzed and found to be full of distortions, including fake headlines and speeches taken wildly out of context. Any person willing to read up on his work knows it is sensational Hollywood-style propaganda.

Moore appeals to the intellectually lazy. UVSC student officers are evidently looking for sensationalism, not thoughtful and honest insight. If these college students want to hear a liberal perspective, why not invite a prominent Democrat who has admirably served our country with distinction?
